Sarah: Seattle

I haven't pulled pictures off of my camera for several weeks, and it shows. I broke that trend today in order to present my seriously lacking photographic evidence of my trip to Seattle.

My mom and I flew out to Seattle:

Yes, remarks about how much more pale I am have been made. I obviously have my dad's genes (note: eyebrows, fair skin, blue eyes, etc. etc.), but I am not even sure I was within 100 feet of my mother's womb. Oh wait.

Possibly because I had skipped sleep altogether the night before, I restlessly took pictures.

My mom is cute, her glasses are Prada, and I think that's Mt. Ranier in the last photo. I also slept on the plane. Actually, I slept a lot on my trip. I'm pretty sure that my mom and my aunt were bigger party animals than myself. Oh well.

Stuff we did:

  • Went to the Bodies exhibit (not the same as the one in James Bond, interesting, a little gross, a trifle bizarre)

  • watched Casino Royale

  • visited Cupcake Royale

  • shopped at Archie McPhee (It's weird. It's awesome. Go there and buy lots of useless stuff for family and friends.)

  • Bought lime green galoshes (not for me, for my mom. I was a little jealous)

  • Took a walk in the rain around a lake (note to self: bring water-resistant pants to Seattle on next trip)

  • Watched a dance/music performance at the university

  • Listened to jazz harmonica at The Triple Door

  • Ate. A lot.

  • Attempted to buy or sample the entire inventory at Whole Foods. Remind me again why we don't have those in Utah?

  • Hung out in Becky's adorable apartment. Spending time with my mom and aunt was a blast.
  • So it was a fairly full three days. And what do I have to show for it? These two pictures of the space needle, taken from inside Becky's car:

    pictures of my mom trying on Becky's leather pants:

    a picture of Becky (she's much more glamorous than this picture would lead you to believe. And very pretty. I am mostly posting this photo to show that my mother is always ready for her photo-op.):

    and a picture from our flight back to Salt Lake.

    So I failed on the taking-picture front, but at least we had fun, right?
