Today the girls and I went downtown to indulge in the First Thursday of April (free museums!). We went to the SAM to check out a new special exhibit of really colorful soundsuits by Nick Cave that a friend thought the girls would really like... and boy did they! They were captivated by all the colors and shapes and sounds. There was even one suit made entirely of little stuffed animals. After the exhibit we walked down the street and ate lunch in a coffee shop right at Pike Place Market. That's when I realized just how very Seattle-ish we were being. So after lunch we went outside (in the rain of course) and snapped a few shots with the iconic Market sign in the background.
