It's always fun to be a tourist in your own town - I certainly feel like a tourist when I carry my camera around and take pictures every second! Anyway, I saw on Caroline's blog that she recently went to Seattle and took pictures of the skyline from Kerry Park - somewhere I've never been - and I'm ALL ABOUT getting crème de la crème views! So we hopped in the car after Jane's morning nap to see all that we could see.
Crossing the I90 bridge.
The views did not disappoint. In fact, if we ever have friends come visit Seattle and they want to do touristy things, Kerry Park is definitely at the top of the list.
It was almost completely clear so we could see majestic Mt. Rainier in the background, but it's not showing up very well in my edited photos :)
Our family. I've already scrapped this photo for one of my monthly American Crafts layouts - I'll share soon!
We told Fox we were going to a park, which to him means slides and swings, so luckily there was a park at the bottom of the hill and we played around for awhile.
I wonder how much these apartments in Queen Anne cost with such amazing views?
Then we hopped in the car and drove a few blocks to go to Pike Place Market.
Alleyways and tall buildings.
What's a trip home without a visit to Pike Place?
The famous Pike Place Fish Co. - look carefully and you can see a fish being thrown in the left picture.
Colorful fruits and veggies.
Random shopper but I loved her bouquet of flowers. Vines for texture.
We got some uber yummy mac'n'cheese at Beecher's. Seriously the best mac'n'cheese my mouth has ever tasted.
Can you believe in all my years of going to Pike Place I've never been to the gum wall literally right there?
Well, now I can say that I have, and I don't ever need to go back :)
We saw a bunch of Elders and Sisters walking around - a fun P-Day activity perhaps?
Crossed two things off my list of things to do and see - Kerry Park and the Gum Wall!
Then we walked to the end of Pike Place to see more good views of Seattle.
