Tiptoe through the...snow?

Last weekend we went for a trip to Seattle. Susan loves tulips so when I told her about the tulip festival that occurs every April near Seattle, we had to go. I figured it was a good time to show off one of my favorite cities.

Of course this year was unseasonably cold (downright freezing!) and very few of the flowers are in bloom. We met up with our friends Jordan and Dave and visited a few fields but it was so cold and muddy that it wasn't the most pleasant experience. We then went to a little street fair at a nearby town and it started hailing. The good news is that Maya and Susan got to experience snow and hail for the first time, not enough for snow angels though.



After returning to Seattle from the tulips we took a ride to the top of the space needle.



Seattle completely redeemed itself the next day however. It was a beautiful sunny day. We visited the market and walked around some downtown.


And then we took a ferry across the sound and back to see Seattle from the sea. Of course rather than sitting quietly waiting for the ferry, most of my time these days is spent like this:


All Maya wants to do these days is walk.

We did have a very nice ride and Seattle is great city.
