Enjoying the Sights of Seattle

If you look closely under "King Salmon", you can see a fish mid-air

We had some touristy Seattle fun this weekend.We started our Saturday with a picnic by Pike's Place Market. We went to Beecher's Handmade Cheese, ordered delicious mac and cheese and ate it overlooking the water.

After our picnic, we went down into the market. Our favorite spots are the flower aisle and the fish throwers. Such a fun tourist spot that attracts all kinds. Speaking of all kinds, a guy walked by the other day with a mohawk about a foot and a half high...and Ryann exclaimed (a little too loudly), "Look, mommy, he looks like a dinosaur!!" (Yes, Ryann, he did)

We enjoyed our Sunday evening tradition of watching the cruise ships go through the sound on their way to Alaska. It was 61 degrees (sorry, Texas friends), but that did not stop Ryann from getting very wet. She loves playing in the water!

Ryann is getting SO big! What a cutie! She needs to find herself a "Sara's Dance Studio" in Seattle. =) I loved the flying fish picture. That is awesome! =)

I think I'm falling in love with Seattle just from your pics! We definitely can't get fish like that in Texas and a cheese maker....seriously yummy. Glad you're enjoying the city.
