We got to Seattle on Thursday night, and were so excited that we had to document it by taking a fresh off the plane, hotel selfie before we even got to our room:
The next day we were up and ready by 8am, despite trying to sleep in. No worries, though. The weather was chilly and a bit drizzly and I was THRILLED to be able to wear a sweater and scarf!
After grabbing some coffee we headed a few blocks down to Pike's Place.
Pike's Place is such a cool spot. Unlike any other farmer's market I've been to, they have everything from fresh-caught fish, amazing produce, handmade goods, and the most amazing flower bouquets for only $5!!!
Later we walked down to the waterfront for an amazing seafood meal.
The next day the rest of our group met us. We hit up the Space Needle:
And that night went to a Mariner's game. Though I'm an A's fan, I was a Mariners fan long, long before the A's were even on my radar, and I still love them. My hubby and brother-in-laws made fun of me for that, but the Mariners are still close to my heart, and that night they won in an 11-inning game!
....oh yeah, at the Tough Mudder the boys got mohawks. Ugh. Not a fan, but by now it's all shaved off and growing back.
On our last morning we went to one of our favorite spots - Biscuit Bitch, and then headed to Pike's Place one last time.
We all had a late afternoon flight, and were back home in time to see the girls before bed.
It was a GREAT trip!
So tell me - where is your favorite spot to get away for a few days?
