I meant to post this sooner, but I've been super-busy.
We went to Seattle, and it was my first away-vacation in my adult life. There were many mishaps before hand with money and transportation, but thanks to friends, family and my awesome brave car, we made it.
One of the first places we went was the waterfront.
We visited Ye Olde Curiosity Shop and I got my picture taken with a mummy.
I had a blast in the international district.
We went into this awesome tea place called "New Century Tea Gallery" where we sampled some excellent tea and the guy did really cool tricks with it.
The Pike Place Market rocked. Though I didn't get to see them throw fish...or the protesters from PETA :(. But we went into a hat store and Damian tried on a pirate hat and did the Captain Morgan pose.
I loved the aquarium:
Looking at all those sea creatures made me hungry for sea creatures.
But when I ate a sea snail, things didn't go so well:
Later I learned that I ate the wrong part.
We went to the Space Needle with my best friend:
Everything is hilarious when she's around. My husband was very tolerant of our insanity... though in this pic it looks like he's pretending he doesn't know us.
We had a lot of fun and memories to last a lifetime, but I was still happy to be back home in Coeur d'Alene.
