We have a lot of friends in Seattle, and the King Tut exhibit is currently at the Pacific Science Center. I absolutely love ancient Egyptian history, so this trip was a must and definitely an excuse to see our friends!
Friday morning we headed off to the King Tut exhibit. We weren’t allowed to take any pictures which was depressing, but expected. The exhibit was full of beautiful statues, jewelry and remnants of ancient Egypt’s past. I expected to see more treasures from King Tut’s tomb, but to see artifacts that were once only displayed on my TV, and were now in front of my face was an incredible experience. There is definitely a lot more detail to behold than I ever expected. It was breathtaking!
We also took the opportunity to explore the rest of the science center. There are HOURS of endless activities in this place. Not just for kids!

Saturday we headed to the Zoo. It was beautiful, but we were there about an hour before closing so it didn’t give us much time to see everything. Seriously, what is a vacation, with kids, without seeing a zoo?! It’s not.
Did I mention that Seattle was a little bit colder than Boise?! We haven’t seen frost in a long time!
So many beautiful fall colors!
Sunday we visited some great friends, went shopping (so fun!!!) and had a fabulous turkey dinner.
Monday was time to head back home.
We stopped downtown at The Crab Pot which was recommended by a friend, and it happened to be right next to the Seattle Great Wheel which we will definitely ride next visit. Presley looked up, pointed to the Ferris wheel and said “COOL!!” So cute!
There is definitely a lot we wanted to do, and a few more people we wanted to see, but we just couldn’t squeeze it all in. It only means that we will have to make another trip back! I can’t wait!
