View from the bottom of Space Needle.
Yesterday Hubster and I took Ash and Britt to Seattle again. This time we went to the Pacific Science Center where we saw dinosaurs, played with planets, hung out in the butterfly house, and watched Lewis, Clark and Sacajawea on IMAX. It was fun. We spent way more time there than we meant to, which caused us to miss the Seattle Aquarium (which I highly recommend).

We did go up to the top of the Space Needle.

On the outside of the Space Needle, where one can walk around and take spectacular pictures, the inner wall isn't straight up and down it comes out in a soft point. Well, not totally soft. It IS metal. Tony was holding Britt and standing right next to that point. Britt decided do her normal head banging (to the tune that only she can hear) and she smacked her lower left eye socket right on that metal. She screamed for a really long time and a bruise showed up right away. 5 minutes later she started vomiting. And wouldn't stop. We took her to Swedish ER and they gave her baby Valium because she had to have a ct scan (which showed that she had no fracturing), but because she wouldn't stop throwing up, they decided to keep her overnight and said she was suffering from a concussion. She had a major headache last night but once she got some Tylenol and a bed, she settled down. We're all home now and have to make sure she doesn't bump her head again for 2 weeks! Wish I could just cover her in bubble wrap for that time.
Poor Britt right after getting checked in at the ER, before they started poking and pesting her.
It certainly hasn't been the staycation that I planned and imagined, but I'm just so grateful Britt is ok and that we're all together.
This morning, feeling better and poking her head over the top of the cage they call a crib.
