A great perk of my of my job is bringing my family with me on trips sometimes. On a recent trip to Seattle my mom and my daughter Lucy were able to meet up with me. Here are a few photos from our day…

First Class with Nana

Getting settled in our hotel room. Big sightseeing day ahead!

Good Morning Seattle! A peek of Pikes Market from our room.

First stop Bainbridge Island

Nature walk into town. The walking stick actually mad it’s way home with us!

Must stop to climb the trees

Shrimp cocktail at Pikes Market was the perfect ending to our day. And, yes they put on a show for us! “SHRIMP COCKTAIL! SHRIMP COCKTAIL! NO SAUCE! NO SAUCE!”

 Thanks for stopping by! You can also follow our adventures on Facebook and twitter.



  1. Looks like a fun layover! Also looks like you stay in a way better area then us. Anything is better then the airport. 🙂

  2. Great perk for “Nanas” too!! Creating great
    memories for all!!

  3. Love it!!

  4. Wonderful!….smiles

  5. Some of my best trips have begun with bringing my children with me on a layover. Once Lucy is a teenager it is so much easier. They can find thier way home if you encounter problems. I love your blog and am so glad I found it.

  6. My Granddaughter sure is getting big


  7. It looks like you had quite the adventure. I’m glad that you can take some of your busy schedule, at least I assume it’s busy, and spend time with your family. That’s just great! So cute by the way!
