Seattle Trip- Days Three and Four

On our third day in Seattle (Friday) we met up with a few of Rodger's friends and set out of a hike in the Snoqualmie Falls area. We had the intention of going on a couple of hour hike but by the time we got to our starting point it was raining pretty hard. We started out anyway but didn't make it far at all. We just had the Ergo for Ellie and didn't want her to get wet and we didn't want to slip in the mud. It would have been a beautiful hike.

Instead we headed to the falls which were just breathtaking. There was a really nice lodge next to them that I would love to go back and stay in.

After the falls we headed to Snake River, another beautiful place in Seattle. We hiked and wandered around the lake and Ellie played in the grass.

It was a beautiful morning/early afternoon.
We headed back to our airbnb for Ellie to nap. It was the only good nap she got our whole trip, every other nap she was held for and they were just short little naps.

That evening we checked ate at a great Italian restaurant and then walked around the Belltown area.

Saturday morning we headed back to Pike's Market to look around before our flight.
Seattle is a great city to get around in on foot.

Our flight was in the afternoon so we left mid morning to go to the Museum of Flight before we flew out. We didn't have a great deal of time to look around but we got to see the things we wanted to-
My boss's dad's "lounge" that is dedicated to him
A bunch of the older planes
The children's portion of the museum
and the best part that we all loved, an Air Force One. This one was one of the first and Kennedy and Eisenhower had both flown on it.

We then headed to the airport to get on our flight home.

It was a great trip. I can't say enough good things about Seattle. It was just so beautiful and we had such a special time there. I am so glad we chose it as Ellie's first trip.

Can't wait to go back!

Goodnight Seattle! We love you!

P.S. I referenced Fraiser no fewer than 8,000 times while there- to basically no one's appreciation.
