A week ago I was able to go to my cousin’s wedding in Seattle. My parents and one of my sisters also went (along with all of my mother’s siblings and spouses), so it was a blast to hang out with far-away family! I left Rush “in the hands of his fully capable father” for the weekend (Jake’s specific words). Besides going to the wedding and the related festivities, we did a few Seattle things like eating fish and chips at Ivar’s, hanging out at Pike Place Market, driving through the trees, and we even caught a glimpse of the Worldwide Sandsculpting Championship (it was in a parking lot next to our hotel…weird).
If I lived by Pike Place Market, I would probably go there every day for fresh food and flowers. The rows and rows of dahlias were breathtaking and I couldn’t get over all the awesome (and inexpensive) produce! Too bad my JUMBO avocado froze in the hotel refrigerator and was rotten by the time I got home. Sad day for me. But my giant honey crisp apple was enjoyed for 3 straight days!
Last but certainly not least, the wedding was a very special, sweet ceremony in the Seattle LDS temple. I’m so happy for Austin and Rachael! Thanks for inviting me. 🙂 The reception was GORGEOUS – totally out of a magazine, set in a beautiful back yard with tall trees and floating candles in the fountain.
Here’s to hoping Jake and I can take a family trip to Seattle someday…
