Seattle Getaway - brought to you by awesome grandparents

Hi! That's past Pete waving at you from the Experience Music Poject in Seattle. What, no munchkins in sight? Ohhhh, yes. Okay, we missed them.

In retrospect I probably should have struck some sort of pose for that one.

Pete mastering bass guitar.

At the Sci-Fi museum next to one of our favorite so-bad-it's-good movies.

Top of Space Needle. I'll spare you the pics of the needle from the ground, you've all seen it!

Dinner at Sky City. They were smart to have just the floor of the restaurant rotate instead of the whole top of the needle. Didn't know that before. Food was average but a fun experience nonetheless.

Sushi place across from our hotel. Cheap and yummy!

Making fun of sign for sushi place for writing things like "stewed purk" and "dairy specials!" as if we could write perfectly in Japanese.

Mariners vs. Yankees at Safeco Field. Ken Griffey Jr. was kind enough to honor our childhood by being the hero of the game.

Pike's, of course.

I wasn't expecting most of it to be indoors. Man, these Seattle folks are brilliant!

In which fish are thrown.

Amazing and amazingly inexpensive flower bouquet from the market.

Those were some highlights. Thanks again to Grammy and Grandpa for taking the kids!

So glad you had a great time in Seattle, Rosie, Pete - you deserved some time for yourselves. I'll say thank you to Connie and Don, too....
