emerald city take 2

tuesday morning we were off early to see the sites.

starting with the space needle...
ohhhhh...ahhhh....

Photobucket

no trip to seattle would be complete without a stopoff at the science fiction museum.
too bad it wasn't open yet.

Photobucket

neither was the experience music project...
but the fuschia wall did make a great backdrop for a jumping picture.

Photobucket

we couldn't continue our morning without some seattle coffee.
cherry street was our coffee shop of choice.

Photobucket

and that gave us some time to navigate.
we would have been LOST without my handy dandy fancy phone and our city map.

Photobucket

after at least an hour of wandering in the rain, we made our way to the seattle public library.
a.k.a. the coolest library i've ever been in.
i knew i would love it the second i walked on the escalator.

Photobucket

we gave the sci-fi section some love.

Photobucket

next, we decided to go to the picasso exibit at the seattle art museum.
very, very interesting.
picasso was quite the character, that's for sure.
and kind of a ladies man if you ask me.

when the audio tour was over and we hung up our headphones, we took a bit to wander around the rest of the museum.

this is my sister's worst nightmare.
it made me smile:)

Photobucket

they had random old white cars hung from the ceiling.
hmmm...
i. just. don't. get. it.

Photobucket

after lunch at a local brewpub, we just HAD to get some gelato...

Photobucket

...and chase flying umbrella art...

Photobucket

....and visit mecca a.k.a. the first rei store.

Photobucket

last stop?
gasworks park.
too bad the weather didn't want to cooperate.

Photobucket

although the leaves were BEA-U-TI-FUL...

Photobucket

Photobucket

we made our way back to vancouver (his aunt and uncle's house) in style...

Photobucket

and not just because we were driving in a ford focus...
but also because we were in the car pool lane!

Photobucket

it made us feel cool.


seattle, you just made the list of the top 50 places i want to live someday.
congratulations:)
