best city in the country....

Ok, so I've always been a huge fan of Seattle. We got to go back there this past weekend. It was A TON of fun, way too short, and way too much driving (3 hours to the airport, 3 hours to the temple, 3 hours back to the airport, 3 hours home...plus 3 hours each way on the plane, with a 3 hour lay over) but it was a fun few hours that we got to spend playing. Of coarse we went to Pike's Place Fisherman's market. That's where we spent most of our time. I LOVE IT! I wish we had more fun stuff like that in Az. I stunk at taking pics this trip...so of the whole HUGE fisherman's market....this is all I got, some hot guy by some crabs. Then that night we were able to meet up with our friend Maren who took us to the best seafood place ever! It was soo good...this coming from a girl who HATES seafood. I had the best fish tacos, and Jase's salmon was amazing. Then we got into the dessert portion of our evening...a little something they call "huckleberry slump"....Mmmmmm
We decided to try eatting it whilst "slumpping"....with our slump faces.....

Then we went to the infamous "Troll under the bridge". Spooky. And FYI, that's a real VW bug in his hand that they cemented over. Prettty sweet. It was way spookier in real life.

Then Saturday we drove through a super snowy icey mountain pass to the tri cities, where our friend got married in the Richland temple. We were able to go to the wedding. It was great. We're really excited for Brandon. Oh, and yes I have 12 year old bangs, and yes, my clothes are getting tighter...bite me!


Jase got us a night at a killer hotel....Hotel Monaco. It was pretty sweet and it came with these sweet bath robes...and this is our we're so rich we wear animal print faces.


Then we drove around for a couple of hours Sunday morning before our flight, and seriously NO one is out, NOTHING is open and there's NO where to eat before 8 in Seattle on a Sunday. It was nuts. But we did come across this sweet place....
You can't go wrong with a FREE butt show!
Anyway, it was a great trip, hopefully someday we can take a real trip to Seattle with less driving, and more days there.

Now you know Scott and I used to live in Seattle, if you think it was fun during this time of year thats AMAZING! It must not have been raining too bad. I am wondering if you got lost because it shouldn't take 3 hours to get to the temple...
Glad you had fun, why are you guys traveling so much lately?
Hope to see you soon!

So, I've gotta know, did you watch the butt show? and if so, spill the beans on how great it was, pleezzz. So about the movie thing, dude...I am waisted right now. However, we are thinking of having a girls night out sometime soon. I don't know, I am a dork right now. Don't stop visiting though.

SWEEEET robes. i need one of those. Did you get to keep them?

Jealous of the trip, even if it was for two days.

Um, the temple was the Richland temple, not the seattle temple, and the mountain pass was covered in snow and ice...we for sure didn't get lost...GPS. haha! And it really didn't rain at all. I love Seattle all times of year. It's just a fun city.
And no, Amy, we didn't hit the butt show...we didn't have time, shucks! And why are you wasted?
And no, we didn't get to keep the sweet robes. We should have stole em, but they had our credit card on file. haha!
