The Seattle Trip

This weekend found us in Seattle at the Pike Place Market and then up in the Space Needle in the evening.  It's been years since we've done anything like this, but Steve's relatives were up on vacation so this was a part of their trip we got to join them on.  

 I always enjoy walking around and seeing the many sites, hearing the different noises,

seeing the creations people have made and sell at the little shops and stands,

 seeing the many different kinds of people and the street musicians.

 The water is always beautiful . 

We walked past the first Starbucks.  It was incredibly busy so we didn't get the coffee I thought I needed for warming up my hands.  We went to a different place where the coffee wasn't nearly as good ; )

The day was dry, but very cold (if you stopped walking).  I don't think it got past 40 degrees that day, but as long as we were walking we didn't get too cold.

 David took this picture below.  I know it looks gross, but he took it because "this is what mom's plate always looks like!"  Meaning, his mom makes sure her children get enough to eat before she feeds herself-or something to that effect. Only one of those forks was mine.  And yes, everyone except for Molly did have their own plate.

We ate lunch and some people spent money to buy themselves desert.

Some people took a rest.

David, of course, took many pictures

After we had our fill of walking around, 

we then headed off to the Space Needle.

By the time we got up to the top it was dark out,

Sam took such good care of his little sister and helped her see through the telescope.

The weather was perfect, moon was full,

The view was beautiful!

This is a photo that they take of everyone just before the ride up to the top of the Space Needle.  We aren't quite sure what John saw that made him smile like that, but we were glad he was having such a good time.
