Pike's Place Market

Today we went to Pike's Place Market. Everybody said this was the place we had to visit, and it definately didn't disappoint us. We had a great time seeing everything there, and it was fun to go down by the water. This market is incredible. Magicians, musicians, artists, and A LOT of great food. They have the most beautiful, gigantic flower arrangements for $5. We went to see the famous fish throwers. They were very impressive. We sampled the smoked salmon and really wanted to buy some, but at $29.99 a pound, we decided we better save up for that one :) We did buy a lot of really fresh, declicious fruit that we have been enjoying all day. We had a great time and I would definately recommend it for anyone who visits Seattle. I think it will become one of our favorite Saturday morning activities.
Here are the fish throwers. The whole time we were there, Tyler kepts saying, "Where are the guys that throw the giant fish. That's what I want to see." The guys in the fruit stand also tossed some fruit around. What a fun place.
(Jackson and I are the tiny people in the bottom corner of this picture. Downtown Seattle is amazing, and really clean and pretty for such a big city. Even in downtown there are still trees and vines growing everywhere. )

I'm so glad that you guys are enjoying Seattle. And I think Jackson might be even cuter now that you are in Seattle. :) I went to Seattle in August and I agree that it is amazing weather and just gorgeous that time of year.

Thanks for the freezing baked goods tip, it really helped.

Oh and I'm reading Babywise, per your recommendation.
