Although we are slowing closing the gap from tourists to Seattleites, a visit from my childhood friend Kim gave us an excuse to put on the tourist hat for a few days. First stop: a trip across Puget Sound on the Ferry.
Hello Space Needle. This is a side of you we have never seen before.
The Punkettes' first time on a real beach. They were quite enamored by the shells, crabs and star fish.
Kim has been looking forward to seeing the fish being thrown at Pike Place Market since she was in grade school. The Fish Mongers did not disappoint, I swear they chucked some 50 pounders. At least Violet wasn't there to hide behind me and cry violently, scared to death that a fish would be thrown at her.
Fresh fish n' chips
My children are a little too comfortable with public transportation. We aren't in Kansas anymore.

We've been spending our summer days (and nights):
watching outdoor movies with our new neighbors on giant outdoor movie screens by the lake:
enjoying goofing off with Aunt Caylyn:
getting organized and starting to think about school, but mostly taking our time and soaking up the sun while we can.
