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!!

Hi Alice! What great pictures! Everyone looks so happy! My stepson and his wife live in Mount Vernon and we're hoping to make a trip out there in a couple of years. I've never been to Washington but my stepson says it's beautiful!
