seattle
















Last month, I went to Seattle to celebrate my grandmother's 89th birthday. It was such a fun, relaxing trip. The weather couldn't have been more perfect.

I arrived on Friday and had a couple of days to enjoy the city before heading to my relatives' house in Port Orchard for the big birthday celebration. My cousin and her fiance escorted my other cousin and I all around Seattle and took us to some amazing eateries, including The Crab Pot (so epic that it was featured on the show Man v. Food) and Molly Moon's ice cream shop (monster-sized scoops and the most delicious homemade waffle cones, ever). We visited Gas Works Park, went to Pike Place Market to buy a bouquet of flowers for our grandmother, rode to the top of the Space Needle, and did some shopping inbetween. All I bought was food (sprinkles and flavored honey) - big surprise.

I'll be going back in August for my cousin's wedding. Can't wait!

These pictures are fantastic Jenny! So much fun! Can you believe that in all the time I have lived here (and right next to downtown) I sill haven't been to the Crab Pot? Pathetic.

Did you get the Salted Carmel ice cream at Molly Moon's. It is my all time favorite.

Thanks, Dana! Haha, my cousin in Seattle told me that the Crab Pot is kind of a touristy spot, so she hadn't even been there either. It was really good, though!

I sampled the Salted Caramel and it was so intense and amazing, but I felt like having something mild that night, so I just got a vanilla cone. I've been getting the worst cravings for Molly Moon ever since I first tried it. You're so lucky you live in Seattle! There's nothing like that in Southern California.
