Back to the Heat!

We are back from our little jaunt up to Seattle, Washington... well actually, Gig Harbor, WA. We stayed with our friends, Bill, Kim, and their almost 3 year old daughter Andrea (Andy for short). It was a quick trip but relaxing for the most part. I don't know what it is about the trees or cloudy skies or cooler temps, it just makes me feel more relaxed. We spent some time in Seattle as you can see by some of my pictures. Shayna is an AWESOME traveler! I brought some crayons, paper, tape... and she was off! A 2 hour flight felt like 10 minutes! We are so lucky! Here she is, looking like a "Big Girl" in her own seat (which we were lucky enough not to pay for) on the airplane. Also, the next time you fly, make sure that you place the sippy cup through the XRay machine (do NOT have you child carry it through the metal detector)- as we were ordered to by TSA (Those Stupid A-holes).

Here we are on the ferry from Bremerton to Seattle for dinner. The city is gorgeous!

We also made it back to Seattle on Thursday. We headed over to the Pacific Science Center, until Shayna fell asleep in the car - then the stroller. Mark and I decided that spending $28 for us to get in and play with kid stuff just wasn't worth it. So we walked around the Space Needle area and found a huge indoor food court with tons of places to choose from and lots of stuff for Shayna to play with when she woke up.

Here we are with our friends on the ferry to Seattle for dinner.

Here's a neat shot of the Space Needle!

and here's one at the Pike Street MarketPlace - where they throw the fish!

All in all, we had a great time! We love it up there!
