Seattle

After a delicious lunch down by the water, my family and I headed up to Seattle’s famous Pike Place Market.

Our first stop was at Pike Place Fish Market, which has the freshest seafood that Seattle has to offer.

It’s also world famous, do you know why? Maybe this sign will give you a clue…

Or this artist’s rendition (no, I didn’t draw it. It’s far too good…)

Yes… THEY THROW THE FISH! Every few minutes one of the workers will grab a fish and hurl it across the room to one of his coworkers. I’m not sure why, but I do know it’s pretty entertaining!

I saw an episode of The Bachelor once where Sean got to catch a fish! So I told my family, friends, anyone who would listen really, that I wanted to catch a fish when I went to the Fish Market. No one thought that I would be allowed to do it, but I had hope… and a mom who asked on my behalf!

They said yes, so I eagerly climbed up and prepared to catch the fish. I remember looking out into the crowd and seeing my brother just shaking his head. Oh hey Josh!

I got ready and…

CAUGHT THE FISH!!!

Thank goodness I caught it, that would have been so embarrassing otherwise!

After my impressive catch, we continued to explore Pike Place Market. It has perfect vegetables…

And women arranging the most beautiful bouquets I’ve ever seen!

It seemed like such a fun place to shop!

Across the street from the market is the first Starbucks… and hoards and hoards of tourists! No way were we waiting in that line!

So instead we decided to see more of the city. Space Needle, here we come!

The views of the city are pretty incredible.

After the Space Needle we had time for one more activity. My dad absolutely loves sailing, so as an early Father’s Day present Josh and I decided to take him (and my mom) out on the water.

Of course we all had to get a really cool sailboat shot! This was my mom’s:

We finished the photo shoot with my parents reenacting Titanic… and the entire boat laughing “with” them.

It was the perfect end to our day in Seattle.

Happy Father’s Day dad!
