Emerald City, Here We Come!

And just like that, I am on vacation!! Yup, it's official-no phones, no work, no chores, no cooking. It's just the guys and I loose in the wilds of Seattle. I know some of you are probably wondering about our choice of a vacation spot. We didn't want to go too far afield from home because we just didn't have the time. My son and I have always loved Seattle-it's much like Vancouver, though a bit crazier traffic-wise. Sometimes though, it is just nice to get lost in a big city and check out all the nooks and crannies. My husband hasn't really had a chance to get to know Seattle properly so this will be fun.

While we are there, we will visit Woodland Park Zoo (first thing tomorrow morning!) and also take a trip to 6 Flags. We will go into Seattle to the Pike Place Market and poke around the downtown core. Beyond that we'll fly by the seat of our pants. All we care about is having fun and RELAXING!

Catcha on the flip side!
