tree festival

Today Max and I headed to Seattle for the hospital's annual Festival of Trees. Each year, a guild puts together this amazing event with elaborate Christmas trees, gorgeous decorations everywhere, lights, music, treats...and of course Santa. Such a festive way to kick off the holiday season!

Each of the trees honors a special patient ("the frequent fliers") at the hospital. In 2006, Max was honored and it was so exciting. Click here to see some of those cutie-patootie photos...he was so itty bitty!

As usual, Max loved all the lights and decorations! He also thought the escalator was super exciting! :)

This tree seemed to be one of his favorites.

Another special attraction is the "Teddy Bear Suite." The entire suite is decked out in beautiful, big, cuddly teddy bears. Seriously, you just want to snuggle right in and take a nap. The suite is so popular that  you wait in line for a good 30 minutes or so. Fortunately Max was in a very giggly mood and we entertained the crowds as we waited. :)

Max loved the teddy bears...he just doesn't care to smile for the camera. :)
