Our lunch at the Space Needle was the highlight of the trip for Jacob. But dessert was the kicker. Here are the boys with their Lunar Orbiter ice cream sundaes. The presentation was pretty awesome too. Dry ice and water made the rolling "smoke" across the table.
Jacob and I with our strawberry sundae.

Oh, the thing you can see from up here.
Here are some of the rides that were built when the Space Needle was built for the World's Fair in April, 1962: A roller coaster and a log/water ride. There are several other rides still working from the World's Fair at the base of the Space Needle.
A nice view of the water from the observation deck. I'm not sure if this is Lake Washington or the Bay. I got a bit turned around up there (pun intended).
A view of Seattle from the observation deck.
After lunch, we decided to take a ride on the monorail. We rode it into downtown Seattle, to the mall and walked around a bit. Then we rode back to the Space Needle, where we were parked. In the photo above, you can see the monorail tracks.

So much fun! Those sundaes are cool - did they taste as good as they looked?
