Corey has become quite the photographer, so I thought I would take him on a great photo op for his day. Everybody else got to come along.
We went to the Seattle Center to visit the Chihuly Glass Museum.
We were a little early so we enjoyed the center grounds while we waited for the glass museum to open. Everybody had their camera except Jill. She did have her phone, of course.
Here we go.
The Glass Forest uses neon and argon glass tubing.
The next room was devoted to glass designs borrowed from Indian basketry.
Dale Chihuly is a collector extraordinaire. Here is a collection of his Pendelton blankets.
Sea life was the theme of the next room.
This amazing glass ceiling captivated all of us.
Each room was just more and more stunning. Look at the amazing "plants" in this garden.
Irene had peeked ahead, and alerted me of the next spectacle, a boat load of beauty.
Next came the chandelier room.
Are they bowls, or are they flowers. For sure they are beautiful.
In the Glass house.
And then out into the garden.
Plantings complimented the glass.
After leaving the Glass Garden we had lunch, including Starbucks coffee and goodies, in the Armory.
And then we lingered around the International Fountain a while longer, appreciative that the only moisture falling was from the fountain itself.
Irene couldn't resist, so in she went. Isaac stayed high and dry.
And then Jill couldn't resist either. Yep, that's her just daring the fountain to get them. It didn't.
We all came back to the homestead, where Corey and I played with our photos, the kids and I played with puppets, and we all watched at least some of the Super Bowl, the Puppy Bowl, and the commercials, while we ate snacks, and pizza and birthday cake.
Happy Birthday, Dear Corey! Happy Birthday to you.
