My oldest son and I were able to tag along with my parents this past weekend to go to a family wedding in Seattle. We had a lot of fun - did some cool tourist-y things, and got to see some family that we hadn't seen in a long time. We're exhausted now, but it was worth it.
First things first, I promised a photo of my son and myself in our wedding outfits, complete with the pleated wristlet I made last week, so here you go! I notice in the photo that you can't see the green in the dress, but trust me, it's there!
On Sunday morning, prior to the wedding, we went downtown Seattle to take in some of the sights. We went to the top of the space needle and even had lunch up there. Very cool, and lots of fun! Probably a "must do" if you visit Seattle.
Included in the space needle ticket we purchased was admission into Chihuly Garden and Glass. This is a stunning display of colour and artistry, highly recommended. My 10yr old enjoyed it as much as the adults did. If you ever have the chance, do take it in.
Finally, what is a trip without a visit to at least one fabric store?? Granted, it was only at Joann's, but it was my first time there so it was still fun. The lines at the cutting tables were veeeeeery long so I didn't have time to choose any yardage since we were on a bit of a schedule as far as getting to the ferry in time, but I did pick out a colourful stack of FQs. So I did come home with a bit of souvenir fabric which is fun!
I would have loved to meet up with some Seattle bloggers (Jenelle, Debbie....), but alas this visit was just too short to fit that in. Next time we'll take a bit more time, bring the rest of the family, and take in more of the sights.
