Seattle

We went to Seattle last week fo Wes and Sabrina's wedding and had a fabulous time! It was beautiful and the weather was excellent! Murphy and Allie Harris were both in the wedding and did great! NeNe got to come help us out and she had lots of fun, too! We are so thankful that she could help us and also spend time exploring the city with us! These are pics from our fun days in Seattle. I did not use my camera at night- I just wanted to enjoy the festivities without taking pics, but hopefully I can borrow some from others who were there! Murphy was ready to go from the moment he woke up on Thursday morning! "Pack-pack" and all! He really enjoyed the flight and did well- it was 4 and a half hours!
These didn't stay on long, but it makes a cute pic!

We went to the Seattle Aquarium on Friday- we all loved it!





Octopus arm!



Trying to get a pic with NeNe!





He liked this otter statue...







Posing with the Pirate and Daddy down by the waterfont







We saw the Seattle episode of Man vs. Food before we went out there and HAD to go to The Crab Pot- it was right on the water and we enjoyed a steaming pot of shrimp, crabs, mussels, clams, and more!








Murph loved all of the shells and talked on his "Shell-phone"!








I got a good piece of meat out of this crab leg- they only gave you a mallet as a utensil!











Mom and I enjoying the waterfront










Murphy had the biggest sucker! It was like a giant gobstopper on a stick!











This was actually a sculpture in Olympic Park- not a real tree!





























NeNe and Murph getting fresh fruit and veggies at Pike Place market














We went to the Woodland Park Zoo on Monday. Murph enjoyed running and climbing much more than the animals!






















































Here he is "hatching" in the children's play area!



















This was some kind of rigged fish at the Fish Market that they pulled to scare passers-by. It totally got us even after we saw other people fall for it!





















The flowers and produce were gorgeous!












































Massive lobster tails!























Dungeness Crabs























More seafood!

























Wild salmon

Love the pics--Duane was drooling over all the seafood ones! I have to ask--who made the "shell phone" joke?? You cannot pin that one on Murphy! :) Looks like you guys had an amazing time and got lucky with the sliver of sun that Seattle doles out! :)

I have never been to Seattle. Looks like fun! Murphy looks like he just goes with the flow. That is great if that is the case. He is such a cute little guy!
