Megaupdate Part 1: Seattle

It’s apparently been 5 months since I’ve updated the blog with photos…that seems wrong, but calendars don’t lie, so I’ll be updating our adventures since November in a few installments since I’ve got quite a few pics and videos.

In December, Katie and I took a trip to Seattle to recharge our batteries and to give Choochie and G-Daddy a whole week with Edric to themselves.  We had an amazing time, and discovered that we pretty much love Seattle and the PNW.  We stayed at a quiet bed and breakfast overlooking Green Lake, and made excursions into town and the surrounding areas for a few days.  There were a bunch of pictures, all of which can be found here.

We went to the Space Needle:


We went to the Zoo, where Katie got to reunite with an old Colobus monkey she had trained in Dallas:


We had lots of local food and drink:


Then we took a break to Skype:


And then it was back to exploring.  We roamed around the Pike Place Market:


And took in the sights and sounds of downtown:


It was hard to say goodbye to one of my new favorite places, and I wish we could have had an extra day or two to play…but there’s always next time.  Below is a time-lapse video I took of our decent into Denver as the sun was setting.
