Since the time Nathan found out that the Space Needle had a restaurant in it, he’s wanted to eat there. So we figured that his 9th birthday was as good of an excuse as any to let us (the adults) splurge under the guise of celebrating our oldest child’s 9th birthday. So with that, we called a sitter for the Ian and Cole and took Nathan, with special guest ‘Cookie Gramma’ and rode the elevator up to the top of the space needle for dinner. Nathan was enamored with the view and the fact that the restaurant rotated. Not so excited about having to wait longer than it takes to get a burger at Red Robin, for his food. Here are a few shots from our adventure last night.
