Brendan and I went to Seattle 8 years ago when we were dating to visit his sister.  This was our first time back, and we loved it.  The weather was perfect, and we had a good time with all of my family being in town.  We made a stop at Pike Place Market.  Such a fun place, but more work this time around with kids, even with all of our helpers.  I was bummed I left my big camera in the hotel, so these are iphone pics.

I LOVE all of the beautiful flowers at the market, and they are such a deal.  I was feeling left out not having a bouquet in my hands, so Brendan bought me some even though I really had no place to put them while traveling.

 The produce is so colorful!

 We went to Molly Moon's for ice cream, and it was AMAZING!  Some of the delicious flavors I had were blueberry lemon custard (my favorite), strawberry balsamic, and salted caramel.

We went to Ella Bailey park, and it had such a great view of the water and city.  It was also in a cute neighborhood.

The reason for our visit to the Pacific Northwest was to attend my brother Blake's wedding in Seattle.  It was a wonderful wedding, and the weather was perfect too.  They were married in the LDS Seattle Temple and had a reception at Salty's on Alki Beach.

This was the best picture we could get together as a family, and I wasn't very happy about it.  All I wanted was one picture of us dressed up together and they just wouldn't cooperate.

The wedding was actually the same day as my sister Brook's birthday, so after the wedding festivities we had a pinata on the side of our hotel that Bill and Merrill brought.  Of course the kids loved it, and of course a few were upset with how much candy they got.  Later we all went downtown and ate on the water for Brook's birthday dinner.
