Seafair Weekend!

It was another hot weekend around here, and nothing says summer in Seattle more than Seafair! It's the annual boat and air festival on Lake Washington. And let's be honest - it's great people watching!! It draws quite an eclectic crew. Grant's family has had a house for years right in the hub of the festivities so they usually have a big party, but this year everyone was out of town so we were on our own! 

The main event is actually hydroplane races, but I've never even really watched them! Here you can see one in the distance ... 

Owen's highlight was getting to sit in a Seattle Fire Department truck!! He's all about fire trucks right now so this was a huge thrill!! 

Grant's thrill was getting to take Owen into the hyrdo "pits" where all the pit crews are working on the hydroplanes between heats. 

My thrill enjoying the nice weather! They close Lake Washington Blvd. for the festivities so you can walk in the road and enjoy the sights. 

And Lila's thrill was getting a Popsicle!! HAHA! That's all she could talk about. She was loving this creepy Barbie pop with bubble gum eyes!! She had the same one last year and I swear that is all she remembered. #priorities 

Owen never says no to a treat either. Mmmm!!


And then on Sunday, Lila woke up at 5:00 a.m. with the stomach flu. Therefore, there are no pictures from Sunday (you're welcome). Poor girl is feeling better now but good lord I hate the stomach flu.

Hope you had a great weekend!!



  1. That is seriously a Popsicle to remember LOL! Glad you guys had a wonderful time at the seafair :) xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. Never even heard of hyrdoplane races before, had to look it up. How cute is Owen? I remember when I was little the fire department came to our school and we all got sit in the truck and beep the horn one time (lots of kids). Popsicles are very important, what else is going to keep Lila cool? Although that particular popsicle is just a wee bit creepy. Glad she's feeling better! I hate getting sick.

    not a mom

  6. Looove the picture of him in the fire truck!!

  7. Oh no! Poor baby :( the stomach flu is the worst. Owen looks so happy in that fire truck. And that Barbie popsicle made me laugh really hard. They can certainly do better making them. It is definitely harder to watch the races when you are there. Much easier on tv :) Glad you had a fun Saturday.

  8. Owen looks so tiny in that big fire truck! Is it sad I kind of wish I got to sit in it? And eat a popsicle...but not the creepy Barbie one. Hahaha.

  9. Your littles are so adorable! This seafair looks like a blast!!

  10. This looks like such a fun weekend and those popsicles look very delicious!

  11. hi! Looks fab, hope the stomach flu didn't hang around too long! :(
