The Emerald City (not the one from the Wizard of Oz)

7 Jul

Alright guys, I’ve been terribly remiss in my blog posting. Lots has happened, but I will keep this one to my recent trip to Seattle. The trip was amazing! We left Salt Lake early on Monday morning and made the long trip in 13 and a half hours. I realize there are about a zillion pics on this post, so I won’t be mad if you get bored halfway through (or a third of the way, or 3 pictures in…)

On the way home we stopped in Salmon, Idaho.
No trip would be complete without visiting Wells Fargo.

We ate at Bertram’s – home of the greatest Monte Cristo sandwich on earth.

We got to go to our good friend Julie’s wedding reception while we were in Seattle.

It was at the Salish Lodge, which is right above the BEAUTIFUL Snoqualmie Falls.

We went to the Pacific Science Center. This table was huge!

We love science…

almost as much as Molly loves Jord.

I’m a surprisingly good rock climber.

We also visited the zoo.

This is a gross picture but we HAD to have one in front of the gum wall.

Most amazing place ever.

Ok, so we went to the Experience Music Project/Science Fiction Museum which was the coolest museum I have ever been to. We spent more than an hour in the very first room. They also had an exhibit all about Jim Hensen (puppets and all). This is Molly, Jimmi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Kyle, Keith Moon and me.

At the top of the space needle. I think everyone in Seattle thought Molly and I were lesbians. Good thing it’s a very gay friendly city 😉

First Starbucks ever.

We heart McDreamy

Totem pole of love. I’m definitely on top.

As soon as he saw this penguin, Kyle immediately gave it a huge hug.

Cutest picture ever from our harbor cruise. We were too cheap to spend $15 bucks on it though.

Seattle Aquarium

We tried to take a picture at every state line, but Idaho was the only one that we could pull over at.

    First of all, it was Salmon, not Salem. And I don't remember anyone getting sick from the restaurant. I just remember all of us watching School of Rock on my laptop in our bed. The zoo was lame though. Except for that bird that hopped.
