road trip to seattle!

labor day weekend took us to seattle to visit tyler’s brother’s family. well, actually a crappy rental car took us there, but you know. IMG_5355

we had the best time! the weather was beautiful and, daresay, hot?? seattle?? it didn’t rain once. anyway, once we got there the festivities began almost immediately. ryan and annie were the best hosts. we hit all the spots! we kayaked on lake union, hit up downtown, gum wall, pike place, bainbridge island, and we ate all the food. it was great.

also, labor day weekend seattle was crowded, and i don’t know if you can see the disdain in tyler’s eyes for the quantity of people, but i can. and it makes me laugh every time i see this photo.

did i mention the best part of seattle? getting to hang out with our cute two year old niece. she is hilarious and has some serious pipes. she and tyler were fast friends.

after church sunday we went on a hike just outside of seattle…. with about every other visitor in the state! it was a beautiful hike, but having to pass through the hordes kind of took away from the beauty. oh well at least we were able to crop out all the people for the pics… ish.

and another great part about vacation? just relaxing outside. we took our relaxation to the next level if you can’t tell by that first pic. tyler’s bedhead is pretty notorious, but honestly rosie might give him a run for his money.

and the our last day 😦 we had breakfast at portage bay cafe, which was so good. i mean, look at the way tyler is eyeing my pancakes while he eats his assorted vegetables. the best part about that place? the fruit bar! dream come true for me.

and then just as quickly as we had come (not quickly… it took twelve hours from utah blah) it was time to drive home. the drive was pretty awful, thanks to the entire northwest being on fire, but tyler is a trooper and a good driver.

we had such a good time, and it was great to see my husband for five whole days!

see you next time, seattle!
