First Field Trip

My brother and sister-in-law are visiting for Spring Break, so we decided to get out and see a few of the things the Pacific Northwest has to offer.

Rory woke up bright and early around 6:45am, I was hoping he would sleep a little later since it was dark thanks to the time change, but I wasn't so lucky. He was just excited for his busy day! I made sure to dress him appropriately in Boeing attire since one of our stops was the Museum of Flight.

After having a week of extra horrific nights with an extremely upset and screaming baby, I called our pediatrician to see if something was up, they were able to squeeze us in early in the day. She decided that Rory had acid refulx, which is what we expected. He now gets to have extra expensive formula, an orthopedic wedge for under his crib mattress, and needs to be upright for at least 30 minutes after every meal.

Dalan ended up getting off work earlier than planned, so we decided to take the dogs for a little hike first. Turns out there are a lot of really pretty trails right outside our apartment complex. Rory was pretty wide-eyed the entire time admiring all of the foliage.

We then went to the Museum of Flight, Rory considered a future as an astronaut, but the difficulty the suit posed in getting to his fists changed his mind.

Dalan and Rory with a B52 something, something. I didn't actually read the sign. I now realize that I will likely be the parent with the camera.

On the way home we stopped at a local hole in the wall, XXX Root Beer.

Braden and Fran ordered the XXX Burger, good thing they decided to share!

Rory was very well behaved. The big screen TV kept him pretty distracted. We had some fun at his expense taking photos to make it look like he had Dalan's hair.

And that pretty much sums up Rory's first field trip. He was very well behaved, which makes me excited to go do more in the future!
