Seattle for the First Time

We have driven past Seattle many times going into the USA to visit my family in Idaho. However, I have never actually stopped and checked it out. 

Since we were there picking up a family member we decided to see a few things. We didn't see a lot, but what we did see was entertaining. We went down by the piers and walked along and made it to Pike Market. This was a lot of fun. They had the most amazing giant peaches, apples, and many other fresh fruits and veggies. Of course there was the fresh fish that was thrown to the back to get packaged up. I Wish I could have purchased a nice fat salmon. 
 These were some chili pepper arrangements. I think they just hang in your kitchen and dry out and then you can use them dried or just for decor. 
 We saw a guy with a parrot on the street. The parrot was quite amazing really. It reminded me of America's Got Talent. The bird could do handstands, back flips, meow like a cat, bark like a dog, and here it is playing dead after someone pretends to shoot it with their finger. You can see that Brayden doesn't quite know what to think. 
 The best part for me were the flowers. Several shops selling unbelievably beautiful arrangements for $5, $10, and $15. Here is the one I chose for $10. I really can't believe how inexpensive they are. They are really nice big flowers with no wilting. If I had this market at home I think I would always have fresh flowers. Wouldn't that be nice. 
  They are much nicer in real life. 
We walked through some other streets were they had some nice shopping but we didn't really actually shop. We mostly people watched as there are plenty of interesting people there. Same within the city of Vancouver. There are plenty of weirdos there too. It makes for great entertainment. 

It was actually fun and I can't wait to take my mom and sisters there. I was thinking if I ever took my brother-in-law Jeff he would not want to ever leave his home again. I think he would never return to the city. We will make sure to take him outdoors instead of seeing weirdos in the city. Haha.

I LOVE Pikes Market! So fun. When I was there, the tulips were amazing and priced exactly the same with beautiful arrangements. Love it!
