My daughter and grandson came for a visit again this summer. No camping this year, but we did make sure we did a few of the normal touristy things. You know, those things that you do or places you go only when you have visitors.
First we had a sleepover with my niece and nephew. We took a long walk, checked out the ducks and geese, made cookies…most of the frosting ended up on their tongues.
We took a trip to the mountain. This was the earliest they have ever had the road open to the top…we had a very warm and dry winter so not a lot of snow up there. But it sure was fun playing in the snow in our shorts. They live in South Dakota, can’t say I’ve ever wanted to play in the snow in my shorts there, that’s for sure.
Next we had a little fun on the beach. Not that we have the best beaches in this area but we do have one little sliver that is sandy and safe. From the snow to the beach, how fun is that?
Every time my daughter comes for a visit she wants to go up in the Space Needle. It’s been years since I’ve done it so we decided to spend the day down there and spend the night right before they had to head back to South Dakota.
Can’t visit Seattle without checking out the gum wall…pretty gross isn’t it?
Seattle Aquarium next up.
I had a great time with them and I really wish they didn’t have to go home. I’m trying to convince them they need to move out here…what’s not to love about the Pacific Northwest?
