Seattle Trip

We stayed at the Marriott Residence Inn. Two bedroom suite with a kitchen we perfect for a family of six. It came with breakfast, too, and it was close to the trolley. Unfortunately, the pool was out of order. That was a huge drawback. The hotel told us we had permission to use another Marriott's pool. It wasn't worth driving over for that. The kids were so disappointed. It was the only downer of our stay there.

The Love Magnet Loved the trolley.

Navigating the streets of Seattle from the Trolley to Pike's Placde Market.

The only way to keep track of the Love Magnet was to put her where she couldn't run.

The guys that throw fish. They kept reminding the gawking crowd that they actually sell fish, too. We had no way to store it so we didn't buy. Can you see the ugly monkfish hanging over the edge?

Thirdborn got quite adept at handling chopsticks. We were so proud of him for trying everything in his bento lunch.

Pike's Place Market

Mr. Wonderful got to meet two of my Cookies and The Scotsman. I wish I would have taped Firstborn giving his rendition of the Scotsman helping his daughter tell the story of the Three Little Pigs. He nailed The Scotsman accent perfectly.

Dinner with Cookies. Yes, those are two real, talking Cookies with me. And daughters, whom we like to refer to as Cookies-In-Training. Dinner was at Ray's Boathouse. Amazing food!

Riding the Ducks on a cold and rainy day. The younger kids had a great time. Remind me to never do this again.

We stopped at Snoqualmie Falls on the way home. Taller than Niagra Falls? Hard to tell.....

Mostly togetherness at Snoqualmie Falls. Firstborn stayed in the car. He sprained his ankle in Seattle. Walked all over downtown. Hobbled up and down hills. He had it with walking.
