So it was just Michelle and I on a little day trip to Seattle for some shopping, dining, and seeing "In the Heights".
For lunch I really wanted to try something new, so, from the advice of Uncle Tom, we went to the Steelhead Diner by the Pike Place Market.
(we thought this name was really funny...yeah we're pretty immature)
We ordered the fried cheese curds (also by advice of Tom), and had a bowl of their clam chowder with bacon and truffle oil (oh my goodness! delicious!), and Michelle ordered the roasted squash and barley (also divine!). After a little walk through the market
we headed up to the 5th avenue theater to see "In the Heights"
In the Heights is a musical set on a block in Washington Heights in New york. A predominately spanish area. It tells the story of the residents of this block, as businesses close, residents come and leave, and one wins $96000 in the lottery)
The music is absolutely phenomenal, and the actors all did a really good job. Michelle and I had a great time.
After a quick stop at the outlet mall in North Bend, we headed home. It was a quick trip, but totally fun, and totally worth it. Too bad Emily wasn't there...I guess we will just have to have another last hoorah that will hopefully include her this time!
While I was in Seattle, Qiana spent the day with my friend Vikki and her family. They took a little trip of their own to Leavenworth, and I think you can tell from the pictures that Qiana had a lot of fun!
Vikki took some pictures of Q with the pumpkins. She got a couple, before Q was ready to stand up and keep running around.
