Montana (and Bowmanville, Canada and Seattle, Washington) trip....Part 1

 We went on multi-destination trip recently. It began July 10th in Bowmanville, Canada. Seth had a race at Canadian Tire Motorsport (what used to be Mosport). The race was Saturday, and it was beautiful weather. 
Fan Adelyn's face!

James spent the ENTIRE race asleep on the blanket. Unfortunately, Dan got hit at the beginning of the race. They got the car repaired, but Seth and Dan finished a couple laps down. :(

Some ice cream after the race lifted everyone's spirits!

We stayed Saturday night and flew to Montana Sunday morning.

On Monday morning, these kids were READY to hike down to the Flathead River!

The water is cold! That didn't stop Adelyn from trying to sit in it.

I love these two!

We have some good times hiking together! Later that day, 2 families from Georgia were randomly vacationing nearby. They came with their kids and we hiked down the river again. We spent Tuesday shopping in Whitefish and Kalispell. 

On Wednesday, we went to Seattle, WA!

We went to the children's museum. It was so neat! They had an area set up like villages in other countries. Here is Adelyn working at a sushi restaurant. 

Dr. Adelyn Thomas, OD

This area was pure free play. Kids could make forts out of all kinds of materials. Adelyn was in heaven. 

And so was James...nearby was a Lego table. 

This is a picture where you kinda just had to be there. We told James to go touch this "statue", not really thinking he would do it. WELL, he did. Seth then gave James $1 to put in his little donation box. When James went up to do so, the "statue" (very gently) kicked James when his back was to him. It scared the snot out of James! Everyone standing nearby was about in tears from laughing so hard at his reaction. 

We all went up the Space Needle. That was awesome!

Then we headed to Pike Fish Market. James fell asleep in the car so he was a tad grumpy in this picture. 

A wall of donated gum....yuck

More pictures to come from the second half of the trip!
