Jeremy had a couple of surprise days off in a row this last week and after a brief discussion of could we afford to do anything, we decided chances are we might not be this close to Seattle again and we better take advantage of it. It was a quick trip, we left after he got off call Wednesday morning (the 15th) and drove back the next afternoon. I love taking family road trips, and thanks to a friend willing to watch Pele so we didn't have a puky dog in the car (what is it with our family and puke?), we had a great time. Kate was an angel in the car (she's also not old enough to demand bathroom stops 2 minutes past an exit yet).
Kate LOVED her daddy carrying her around the city. We got cheap tickets for a Mariners game and killed about an hour before the game just walking around down town.

I believe this is actually a picture of Ken Griffy Jr. hitting his 400th home run as a Mariner. Jeremy was WAY excited. However, in honor of Jackie Robinson, all the players on both teams were wearing the number 42, so I had a hard time remembering who was who.

This is us in our cheap bleacher seats. Some of the fans were almost as entertaining as the ball game.
Papa fed her and she zonked out on us. However, she woke back up at the hotel and Jeremy and I were sleepless in Seattle.

We liked this since my parents live in Cedar City.

This was the most fun part of the space needle for me (it's free to put on furry gloves!)

Years ago roommates and I planned a trip here so we could see the Olympic National Forest. Well, that trip never happened and because it would be another 3 or more hour drive from Seattle Jeremy and I voted not to go, but here's a picture of what I'm pretty sure are the mountains of that park from Pike's Market in Seattle.
