That big cone is the building they do the glass blowing for a few hours every day.
We weren't allowed to take pictures of the art in the galleries but I took this one before I knew that. It's a wall of bottles! :
It was set up really cool - there were four "glory holes" where they warm the glass to work on it, and one glass pit, where they would actually add glass to the blowing stick thing. Some lady guest artist was there the day we were and she and her team were working on one piece the whole 4 hours we were there! It was ornate and stuff but the "home team" made 3 different pieces in that time!
Here's the "view" from the grandstand observatory thing:
The "Home Team" was my favorite. We saw them go from this:
And doing this:
The "Away Team" was making another one of these:
This is the beginning of the top:
Making the middle piece:
Attaching the two (with the ring in between):
And attaching the bottom:
It was such a good time!! I would totally recommend it to people that can go. Watching it all was my favorite. (If you couldn't tell...)
This past Sunday I took Jason to the Museum of Flight in Seattle since he'd never been. It was okay...I'm not all that into planes (I appreciate that they can take me places, but that's about it) so I was a little bored but Jason cracks me up. :)
I turned into Amelia Earhart and Jason was Neil Armstrong:
They have 2 planes outside (and across the street) that you can tour, one being an old Air Force One:
Jason and I goofing off with one of the bathroom mirrors:
They also had a Concorde to tour:
It may be fast, but it's TINY:
It was a lot of fun!!
This week I also did some scrapping!!! YAY! :) I did my first Effer Dare (#54) and asked Jason what one word he would use to describe me and then I scrapped it:
Of course I had to do one for him too:
Awww...he is a genuine boy. : )
Last night one of Jason's friends invited us to hang out with him and his girlfriend. He is hysterical!! It was a lot of fun too. I suck at bowling and was really sick on top of that, so that was hard, but it was still a good time! :)
Anyway, that's all for now. (As if a million pictures weren't enough.) :) Later, skaters!!
