A Day in Seattle

This last week was Spring Break for Em's school and so she headed to Arizona with the school choir on tour.  She turned 17 while she was gone (first one of my kid's b'days I've missed ;{ ), and on her b'day they sang the National Anthem at the Diamondbacks game.............................

Em on the right with her friend Lily   

 Since Randy and I were temporarily empty nesters we decided to have some fun too, so on Wednesday we spontaneously headed to Seattle for the day.  We checked out the Marina there............definitely planning to take the boat South this summer.  The Marina is right downtown at the waterfront...............

Fried Macaroni & Cheese - our appie
 We had an early dinner at the Cheesecake Factory - My most favorite meal ever is from's the Chicken Madeira and I didn't get a picture cuz I was so excited to dig in when it arrived!!


We ended up by going to the Ballard Locks and arrived just as a tug was bringing a barge through - very cool!  I hadn't been there before and the park is absolutely breath taking right now with everything in full bloom.  Definitely want to go back on a warmer day (don't you love my afghan?)

More to come later on what else we did.

My girl gets home late tonight - can't wait - it just wasn't the same without her around!

Did the Seattleites even know what an afghan was? :-) Looks like FUN!

Such a fun day in Seattle! Great pic of you in orange with your pretty flowers. The empty nest won't be all bad...
