We're in SEATTLE!!

Mom and Larry arrived at our house at 4:30 this morning to take over kid duty (thanks Mom) and drive us to the airport (thanks Larry) and we were off!! We had an uneventful flight and got to the hotel by 10:00. We dumped our suitcases and walked down to Pike Place Market, not knowing what we were doing or where we were going. It was so gorgeous and fun. They had rows and rows of fish markets, produce stands, fresh flowers, crafts, and organic everything!! At one fish market the employees were throwing huge fish back and forth. I bought some strawberry vanilla hemp granola...I had to force myself not to buy fresh flowers...gorgeous sunflowers for $1 each!!!! Then, we had lunch at Chowder. SO delicious and quaint. It was off the beaten path and mostly locals were eating lunch, that's why we chose to eat there.

Tonight we're meeting my high school friend Shana and her husband for dinner. I haven't seen her since shortly after our wedding, so I am anxious to catch up with her!! For those of you who know Shana, I'll try to post some pictures of dinner later tonight.

We miss the boys and puppy...but are having a great time!!
