Our vacation to Seattle

We finally got the courage to take our first vacation by ourselves. Up until now, the only place we've gone is to my mom's, where we have help, we don't stay in a hotel, we have a car, etc. So, we decided to go to Seattle. The reason we chose Seattle is because Brian had a meeting for work there starting Monday morning, he was going to have to leave Sunday night. Instead, we all left Thursday morning, Starbucks paid for his flight, and my flight was free from frequent flyer points, and we spent the weekend seeing the sights of Seattle.

It was a little tricky with Sadie, but it worked out okay. She was really good. She slept at night, she ate her food, she took naps when we needed to her...for the most part. We had an awesome hotel, with a really nice view, 2 blocks from the Space Needle. We had a mini-fridge and a giant bed, and a couch that was comfortable. And we brought the sound machine, that was our life-saver. The only thing our hotel didn't have was a bathtub, so we all had to get in the shower together to get Sadie clean. One person held her while the other soaped her up. It was an adventure!!

We saw the Experience Music Project, we went up the Space Needle twice (once during the day, once at night), I shopped at Whole Foods for the first time, we went to the Aquarium, we walked through the Pike's Place Market (which was a really bumpy street, so Sadie LOVED it in her stroller!), and we took a little cruise of the harbor and learned about the ships and the docks. We did a lot of walking up and down hills. We experienced rain and wind. We saw an IMAX movie at the science center. And we went to a (very cold) Mariners game.

Overall, it was a good trip. It was good to be in the Pacific Northwest. I loved the cool weather and the eclectic food. Going on vacation with Sadie is no longer as scary as it used to be.
