Fun in Seattle

What's better than going on a day trip on the drop of a dime? No planning, no stressing just going. That's what we did today. We made our first trip down to Seattle to Pike Place Market ( probably a 30 minute drive from us) to do a little sight seeing, with on of my husband's work buddies.

Let me have the pictures do the talking,i don't feel like we even scratched the surface and im sure we will be making alot more trips down there!

Pikes Place Market Hundreds of shops waiting to be explored!

I thought this was a creative ornament 

Yep, we're pretty cheap.....we might need this book!

Pretty cool globe

I Spy spider you?

Giant gummy bear made out of gummy bears

The golden pig...that eats coins...

I've never read this book but it instantly made me think of ..............

.........this episode of Gilmore girls....for those of you who have seen Gilmore Girls.

Sugar time....whats better than mini doughnuts? 

Next we headed down to the pier...hellooo spirit of seattle!

That ferry was sure busy today

Hailey however had her eye on the bird....

yes this one

Seattle Mariners stadium...apparently today was there opening day....? and there was activities going on in the stadium but we didn't have time to go over there.

Seattle Aquarium....can't wait to go back to that one!

There goes the umbrella!

The Chocolate Factory,probably one of my favorite stops along the way.

Ready for sugar overload?

Fancy Marshmallows

And not to spoil this amazingly fun day.....on our way out we stopped by the gum wall -they say it's the 2nd wall in the united states that has the most germs. YUCK! and it was very popular today. 

Our friend Dustin decided he'd add a piece to the wall too.


After 5 hours of walking around ....we were tuckered out...and decided to call it quits and head home

I can't wait to go back and explore some more of Seattle! 

Do any of my readers live in the Seattle area? if so what are your favorite things to do in the area?


  1. You have such a fun blog! I'm now following from Welcome Wednesday. Feel free to follow back at :)

  2. Oh my google! I'm so happy to have found your blog via the Lovin' This blog hop! First, the whole philosophy behind your blog is precious. Second, though I don't live in Seatlle, I'm particularly obsessed. Everything from the freshness of Pike Market to the preciousness in the outlying cities, it's just a wonderful place. Can't wait to come back and play again soon.

    We think you'd love See Beautiful too.

    Happy seeing beautiful!

  3. We lived in Seattle for 4 years and loved it! My daughter was actually born there...we miss it terribly.

  4. Cool, looks like lots of fun. Tony & I will have to come visit you guys somehow sometime. So many things to do!

    1. Yes you should! We didn't even scratch the surface of Seattle,but it was really fun! We are planning on going to Portland sometime because it's only 2 hours from us :D

  5. I just ran across your blog form a pinterest post and noticed you lived in Washington. My husband & I are hoping to move our little family out there this Fall with the Navy. One thing I LOVED when I would visit Seattle was the underground old city tour. It is one of the coolest things. If you haven't tried that yet you guys should go! Ihope you don't mind me following your blog you have some cute things! ~ Queli from Florida.

    1. I also LOVE the underground tour! Seattle is a great city to explore and find new treasures in :)

  6. I used to live in Seattle! I too had added my own chunk of germs to that wall! You should check out the Freemont Troll :)
