SEATTLE TRIP ~ ~ ~
My Seattle son and kids picking us up at Sea-Tac the day before Thanksgiving!
Thanksgiving Day after Hunter's Grid-Iron Classic football game! It rains in Seattle ~ almost all the time ~ we were bundled up but Chris had rented us a "box" ~ very nice little room all warmed up and we could see everything ~ what a view! This high school stadium where they played was really nice!
Friday we went to Pike's Place Market downtown Seattle! Stopped for a beverage at the Virginia Inn ~ it dated back to the 1800's ~ great place!
Grandma and Grandpa helped decorate their tree and I posed like granddaughter Haylee always does in her photos ~ looks cute when it's a 13 year old!
My daughter-in-law Coni and I ~ she and I share the same birthday ~ both Aries ~ wonder if my son married a mother image??!!
This was taken a year and a half ago when we were there ~ kids have grown a lot since then. This is THE GUM WALL ~ famous to some ~ unheard of by me! It's in an alley somewhere near Pike's Place and this entire wall is covered with gum wads ~ nice, hm? This little band of people added some to the mix ~ we didn't go back this year to see if we could find their exact pieces ~ Haylee made hers into a heart so they thought maybe we could! The GUM WALL is one of the strangest things I've ever seen! Sweet Hannah is carrying a purse I made for her from a recycled sweater ~ nice girl to use it while I was there!
That's our Seattle trip in all it's glory ~ it was fun to be with the kids ~ their lives are so busy ~ and we certainly added to that busyness! Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving ~ now on the next big celebration!
P. S. How do my blog friends like the new posting set-up? A little hard to find my way around but it worked!!
