Seattle, Washington

When discussing our plans for our weekend in Portland, Adam gave off several suggestions  One of which, needlessly to say, was Seattle. I was up for anything. But when Brooke and I found out that H&M in Portland wasn't opening up until November, yet there were three in Seattle, we made definite plans to go.

A tad worried about what Adam would think ... We didn't tell him about the H&M plan until we were well on our way to Seattle. But being the sweet man he is, he had no concerns whatsoever and let Brooke and I spend as much time there as we wanted.


And Brooke and I spent as much money there as we wanted. :)

After H&M we head to Pike Place Market. It's a world reknown farmer's market and one of the oldest in the nation.



It is also the place famous for fish throwing, which you have probably seen on TV or in movies...



It is also home to many other amazing things:



The flowers were absolutely gorgeous and for a vase that would cost you 60 bucks in Logan, Utah you could purchase for 10 dollah at the market.

After wandering the market for a bit we decided to catch a ferry in Elliot Bay/Puget Sound.

When Brooke saw these she said, "Orange giraffes!" Hahaha, I couldn't agree more! :) They are actually used to take cargo off ships.


The landscape view of Seattle from the Ferry, including the Space Needle.

After our Ferry we went to dinner at a little restaurant on the bay. And then we met up with Adam's friend, Dan {remember how Adam knows someone from every state? Seriously.}. I made Dan take us somewhere that I always try to go when visiting places with one of these ...


Gorgeous, no? :)

Dan then took us a little ouside of Seattle to see the next sight, Snoqaulmie Falls.


And in case you weren't aware ...

Good.to.know.

Then, for some reason we decided to take solo photos. Brooke went first. She said that when you take a solo photo you must pose and cannot be entirely serious.


Adam followed in style ...


And I ... I just never know what to do in a photo alone ...



So I do my Austic-hand waving thing. :)


After the falls we headed back to Seattle to Dan's favorite restaurant, which was very Seattle-authentic. It was called the Five Spot. The best thing about the restaurant is that every quarter they change their decor completely. And it's themed. The night we went it was ...


Which Brookie loved because DC is where she served her mission! We sure learned a lot about the American Presidents while waiting for our food. Annnnd, in the womens' bathroom you learned all you wanted to know about the Republican party and in the mens' the Democratic!

After dinner Dan took us to an amazing spot to overlook the city at night ...




Look how amazing the moon looks! P.S. It was fruh-eezing!!

We then made the 2.5 drive back to Portland ...

I love the orange giraffes. I don't know what H&M's sells, could you tell me what you got so I could share your excitement?

Shan said...

It's pretty there too!

Meg said...

I love waterfalls. Your night shots of the city are pretty awesome, too.
