36 hours in Seattle.

While in the States for August Mike, Lexie and I planned a quick visit to see my sister, her awesome husband Brian and my adorable neice Emma. We were there for less than 48 hours. We hoped a plan Saturday morning, it's just an hour, and came back for bedtime Sunday. Just a quick weekend with out the boys, who stayed with the grandparents and were none the wiser "our parents are gone, what? We're having too much fun to notice"
On the Seattle agenda, Ferry Boat ride to one of the islands and The Public Market, hanging out with the family and a whole lot of Emma! We picked the best weekend ever, it was warm, blue skies, white puffy clouds and a cool breeze from the ocean. I would have moved there in a heartbeat if every day were like that. I loved the market and all of the bundles of fresh flowers for so cheap. I would always have a bouquet in my dining room if we lived here!

My baby loves to shop too!

Another great treat for our super quick visit was getting together with our good friends Jen and Brad who were home for repat as well in the Seattle area. It was nice to see them on the right side of the world and out of the sandbox. We walked through the market together and had a quick lunch. We were so blessed to see family and our sandbox family in the same weekend in such a fun city.

Thank you again to my sweet sister Lori for welcoming us and making us feel at home. She was gracious enough to arrange our hotel and then take the weekend off work to show us around. We loved our visit and our time with them. Already planning next years trip.
Hugs, A
