Yesterday we went up to Seattle for a family meeting and decided to spend a bit of time at the waterfront first. Not only is it a fun place to visit, but it was about 20 degrees cooler there. That was a great bonus on a day when Seattle broke an all-time heat record with a daytime high of 102!
this fountain looked so inviting on a hot day
but we decided to just take a picture instead
and throw some pennies in it
We also wandered through some of the great shops and bought some Christmas presents!
the boys liked this warning at Ye Old Curiosity Shoppe
they also had Jake the Alligator Man’s cousin Larry there
Just before we left we watched the show the Coast Guard fireboats were putting on from the pier. We were also able to see the Navy ships coming in for SeaFair this weekend.
there were helicopters, too
It was a very nice day and it was wonderful to finally see family and give them their Christmas gifts. It was Christmas in July. But better late than never, right? :o)
