Yesterday, Beautiful Daughter #1, Dear Son-in-Law, Handsome Son, Abby and I headed into Seattle to do the typically tourist things that make Seattle such a fun place to visit. We stopped first at Pike Place Market, where we (and thousands of other people) examined all the fruits, vegetables, flowers, and crafts, and watched the obligatory fish throwing. Those fellas sure have their act down pat.
My big purchase of the day was a large, hardback copy of The Poky Little Puppy for Abby. This was my childhood favorite, and my children's also. I read it so much that I STILL have most of it memorized. "Five little puppies dug a hole under the fence and went for a walk in the wide, wide, world..."
Dear Son in Law and Beautiful Daughter #1 headed to the Space Needle for a sky-high view. (And despite the fact that it was Bumbershoot Weekend, we found FREE parking only 2 blocks away. Very cool!) Handsome Son and I stayed at ground level and entertained Abby so her mommy and daddy could enjoy the view uninterrupted.
