Last Saturday, we took the kids up to Seattle. We went to the Space Needle –

And looked at the amazing view –

And had the most expensive meal we’ve ever eaten –

Then went to the Ballard Locks –

And watched the boats –

It was an absolutely glorious day in the Pacific Northwest.

Well, except for a few periods where we got lost and blamed each other. Apparently being lost in a big city does not bring out the best in Jim and me. Mostly Jim.

I can say with confidence though, that it was all his fault.

Also at some point, Big rubbed his hand or his face all over some disgusting pile of germs. Three days later, he woke up at 5:30 am, announced he didn’t feel good, and coughed all over my eyeballs.

So now we all have the plague or something.

    Wow…$45.95 for an entree! I don’t know if I’ve ever paid that much. I can’t believe that you did either. It sounds like a good day, minus the whole plague thing.

    When we lived in Seattle we never ate at the Space Needle because we were warned it was very expensive, though I had no idea it was THAT pricey! Yipes! How long will you be there? It’s too bad you aren’t summering in the PNW, because there is SO much to do and the weather is glorious. Depending on how long this adventure lasts, you should think about going back next July or Aug. You won’t regret it!

    That had better been some good steak and fish! Or maybe it just costs a lot to take it up the lift?

    My husband (who works out in the “real” world) has brought home some real germs. Geez – that’s why we homeschool, so we don’t get sick!!!

    Yours in snot.

    Oh, maybe some of you don’t know about the Space Needle?

    Sorry, I didn’t think to explain to my Vast International Audience. It was built during the 1960 World Fair and it is a revolving restaurant. So you ride an elevator up 600 feet and then eat while it rotates in a full circle. You are mostly paying for the novelty and the view.

    I guess I won’t confess how much we spent in the gift shop….. But it’s rice and dirt for the rest of the month around here.

    (PS. We left a $20 tip, too)

    I’m a horrible sadistic person for laughing at your plague comment, but it was just such a matter of fact postscript to your whole adventure.

    It’s awesome that you had good weather for your day trip. Seattle is glorious on sunny days.

    Feel better soon!!
