For the last three days of our trip, I decided to combine them into one since Friday we didn’t do much besides go to a business Costco (which is awesome by the way) and eat. Then Sunday is when we drove home.
So yeah Friday we decided to make it a pretty relaxed day and tried to get Chandler to take a nap in his pack n’ play since he hadn’t really had a regular nap since we got there. After that Trevis had wanted to go to business Costco because we don’t have one here in Utah. It’s actually a pretty awesome place, it just has a lot of bigger items that a regular Costco doesn’t have. Stuff like giant deep fryers and huge printers and my personal favorite (though I don’t really understand why they have it) Torani flavor syrups. I had been looking around for a while to find some of these that we’re sugar free or that didn’t cost $15. They were only $3.99! Have you ever walked out of Costco having only spent $3.99?! I haven’t, and probably never will again. Sometime after Costco, I think later that evening.. I honestly can’t remember which is why I should write blog posts earlier than 3 months after they happen. Oops! Anyway, after Costco we went to get Dim Sum. If you haven’t ever had Dim Sum, you need to have it. I had never had it before and now it’s all I want in life.. Okay, maybe that was a little dramatic but seriously, I haven’t stopped thinking about it since then. It’s kind of hard to explain exactly what they are but hey guess what, I have pictures!
The restaurant was inside a mall so after that, we just shopped around for bit then headed home to watch a movie.
So the next day was our last day, and we were determined to make it a good one, it was also the only day that we witnessed true Seattle weather, I mean we were actually wearing jackets at one point!
We had decided we were going to spend most of the day in downtown Seattle since when we had gone before, we hadn’t stayed for too long since Chandler was grumpy. When we got to Pike’s Market Place it was almost time for lunch so we took care of that first. It was our last day there, so we went all out with our lunch choice and picked a fancy restaurant with an awesome view of the ocean. I wasn’t super hungry so I just had some soup, but Preston was determined to have crab while we were in Seattle and he finally made that happen.
After that Chandler of course started to have a little bit of a meltdown, so Baylee and I took him outside while we waited for the boys to pay.
We strolled around Pike’s Market Place and got some more donuts, went to a few shops and then I of course made us all go take more pictures down by the gum wall. Now that I’ve taken my photography class and I know how to use my camera a little better, these pictures kill me. The coloring turned out so weird, so I tried my best to fix them on my computer but now I know how to fix the color on my camera and it’s too late!
Baylee and I had been super determined to go find Meredith Grey’s house from Grey’s Anatomy. Our husbands were kind enough to oblige. Plus down the street from the house was this small park that over looks the city and it. was. GORGEOUS. The whole neighborhood there was beautiful. I wanted to live there, and one day when I’m rich maybe I will.
Since it was our last meal here we went out with Baylee’s family. I don’t remember if I mentioned this already, but it’s totally worth mentioning again. Baylee’s family is awesome!! I’m not even saying this just because they were nice enough to let us stay at their house, they were seriously amazing. And the way they act to each other is amazing. Her siblings are are the cutest, her mom is the sweetest and her dad was so nice and even paid for our dinner that last night! Seriously. They’re amazing, I loved them all!
Anyway, we headed to met Baylee’s family at the restaurant. At this point, Chandler was on his last straw (that’s such a weird saying). When we sat down he started freaking out, so we pulled out the tablet to watch a movie on and he was calm for like 5 minutes. So I took him outside to run around on the dock while we waited for our food. Our food came and he was entertained for about another 5 minutes before he had another meltdown. I really don’t know what happened in Seattle, but ever since then we can’t take him out to eat without suffering a major meltdown. After we finished dinner, we took Chandler outside where they had a little sandbox for kids to play in. It was probably Chandler’s favorite part of the day!
Then we headed home and went to bed since we had to get up early. The only pictures I took on our way home were of trees while we were driving. I really miss all those trees they were so beautiful, which is basically the description I’ve used for everything on this trip, but I can’t help it, it’s true! My dream has always been to live in London, but if that doesn’t happen, I could definitely be happy in Seattle it was everything I always dreamed it would be and I hope we get to go back again very soon!
