25 Years!


Well, I didn't go to Farm Chicks so you're not going to get any fabulous pictures of that great event.

But my #1 and I did celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary this week-end!

Since we didn't have a lot of money we decided to head to Seattle to celebrate.

It was great!

We decided to make this a threesome occasion as there was a Science Fiction Museum that we knew our son would totally enjoy.


We had a fun time looking around seeing all the fun things they used when filming many of the Science Fiction Shows.

After that we headed to the hotel.

While we were there we made reservations to eat at the Space Needle.

Casual attire was acceptable but when I found out my seventeen year old had packed what I thought was his oldest and worst jeans and shoes, I knew it was time to go shopping.

I'm also practical though, so I didn't want to buy him something he wasn't going to wear again.

We headed for Ross.


Where we found pants and shoes for the boy and a shirt for dad.


We were ready to paint the town!

If you haven't ever been to the Space Needle for dinner, it is a real treat.


The top of the Needle turns.

It takes 47 minutes to make a full turn.

The food was just F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S !

After a very filling meal the boys decided they could squeeze in a dessert so they chose a wonderful ice cream dish.

Presentation is everything isn't it?

This great ice cream dish looks even better with smoke!

The next morning we headed for Pike's Place.

This is an open market where they sell fish, produce, flowers, crafts etc...

This is always a fun stop.



My favorite thing, the flowers.

Since peonies are in season right now they were selling beautiful bouquets as well as single stem flowers.

I wanted to buy a bouquet as the price was so reasonable for such outstanding peonies but since I had a 3 hour trip ahead of me I was afraid they wouldn't like the trip.

So, I had to take pictures.


If you're ever in the Seattle area these are a few fun places to stop.

We had a great 25th!


Love this man!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Debbie that picture is just precious. You must have a good one there. Twenty-five years is awesome. I love that you took your son along as well. We seemed to spend our anniversaries with our children in tow too. Not all, but many. Seeing your pics reminds me of the great time that Seattle is when we visit (which isn't much)
I'm glad you had such a great time!!!
hugs
