A Day at the Market

Toward the end of our Christmas break we met up with Monica, Jachen, and Bruce in downtown Seattle at the Pike Place Market.  We've been to the market a few times over the years, but we really haven't done anything other than look.  This time however, Bruce suggested that we all get breakfast at Lowell's.

Lowell's is a really cool little restaurant with 3 levels that overlook Elliot Bay.  The food is pretty killer, as you can tell from this photo.

Stephanie and I split the Market Breakfast which was 2 eggs, toast, hash browns and 3 amazing little sausages.

Here we are digging in.

What a beautiful little family that I have:

Although the view wasn't great on such a winter day, Henry could see a few boats that where moving through Elliot Bay.

 And then there were some of the obligatory sights: The pig.

 The sign:

Rad old-school meat signs.

Daily Dozen Donuts.

After parting ways with the rest of our family, we weren't quite ready for our fun day in Seattle to end.  Henry had been cooped up in the stroller for a while so we wanted to take him to a place where he could run around a little bit.  We went to Gasworks Park.  Henry was in heaven.

He mostly threw rocks in little puddles and generally overlooked the cool pipes and other things that are what the park is known for -- whatever floats your boat.

Then there's this beauty of mine.  I may have said this before, but one of our goals this year is to not let the weather keep us from having fun experiences.  That day at Gasworks was pretty cold, but we weren't going to let that keep us down.  This woman is a good sport:

Probably my favorite picture of Steph of all time.  I can't believe that I took it.

And when you add this kid into the mix cuteness ensues.

 Scrunch face:

I like this portrait of me taken by Steph.

 This is the moment when Henry saw a sea plane landing in Lake Union.  Utterly transfixed.

Well that's it.   Thanks family for our fun day!
