gone west

Friday, October 14, 2011

creed and i took a trip to seattle back in august to visit jocelyn in her new surroundings. we hopped off the plane bright and early west coast time and zipped off to the space needle for lunch reservations at the rotating restaurant at the top of the needle. from there we headed to the pike place market to pick out a fresh dinner to grill on the roof top oasis above jocelyn's apartment with some dear friends that accompanied us on our mini-vaca.
the original starbucks
yes, that's gum, and lots of it...chewed and spit out
what a view...mount rainier in the distance
the next day we spent the morning being healed...more on that another time...and headed to the crab pot for the freshest of fresh crab...so much crab that creed couldn't quite keep it all down.
saturday, we stopped by uw for jocelyn to show off her new campus and headed north across the border to spend the day in vancouver.
welcome to canada!
so nice to see auntie paul again!
we ventured into a local brewery...
and then the girls wandered the quaint house boat village while the boys did boy things.

we also squeezed in an interesting weezer concert to celebrate creed's birthday and the fact that he is without a doubt weezer's number one fan, in addition to a fabulous dinner in a vancouver hotspot complete with belly dancers.  those adventures call for imaginary pictures. and for the record, we didn't see a drop of rain the entire time we were there.

thanks for the lovely hospitality, joc!
