Exploring Seattle

Recently we went to Seattle, WA to visit my twin sister and her hubby!  We had the best time.  Washington is a beautiful state and Seattle has a lot to offer.  Only negative was going from Texas where its warm to Seattle where its warm is not the same thing.  I froze half the time but hey it could have been worse right.  Also I did not realize that in Washington most houses to do not have air conditioning.  This was new to me as I have never lived in a house without it.  It was definitely something to get use to.

While we were there we visited and I recommend doing all these things:

  • A natural park that had a pebble beach and lots of trails to hike.
  • The Great Wolf Lodge (to celebrate my son’s birthday – his auntie really spoils him)
  • Pike’s Market
  • Ride the Ducks Land and Water Tour
  • The Space Needle

Some pictures I captured are below.

At the airport. Note: check your tickets to see if you have been pre-TSA approved. We were for our flight to Seattle but didn’t even realize it!
Toddler obsessed with airplanes at the airport = easy babysitting.
My son’s first plane ride. He loved it! I was so worried for nothing!
What will be waiting for you if you select the birthday package at Great Wolf Lodge.

The birthday package comes with a cake and tokens loaded on a card to spend at the arcade.


Great Wolf Lodge has a HUGE arcade. My son loved this ice cream truck!
His favorite thing at the arcade and he was really really serious putting the tickets into the ticket counter. I have never seen him work so hard.
The legendary Pike’s Market. I actually explored it but had a really hard time due to the fish and my morning sickness. The smell just didn’t quite work for me – pregnant.
Probably the funnest way to explore Seattle and to learn about it’s history. Ride the Ducks Tour!
