Seattle Day 2

We woke up again to an overcast sky and a temperature of about 56 degrees. There have been no complaints from Paul or I about this weather, it has been amazing, especially in light of the fact that the temps in Dallas have been well over 100 degrees for a while now. Halie on the other hand is not so thrilled about the chilly morning and keeps asking "how come the sun doesn't come out here?" This morning we headed out to the zoo. This was a beautiful zoo with all "natural" habitats for the animals. We saw zebras, giraffes, lions, orangutans, bears, antelope and otters to name a few.

Austin got to get out of the stroller with the otters, he enjoyed watching them and the fish through the glass.

After the zoo, we were able to take an incredible bike ride on another paved bike trail. Seattle has an incredible system set up for bikers and runners. We got on a trail just outside of downtown and rode out for 1 hr and 15 min and turned around and headed back, not having to dodge one car. Amazing. Now we did have to dodge literally a thousand other bikers and runners on the trail, but that was ok with me. The kids did great on the ride for the first 2 hrs, the last 30 minutes they started to melt down, but we all made it back in one piece! It has been nice with Paul pulling the kids, because it evens us out quite a bit as far as our pace. I get to be the faster one for a change!
