Even though this is a recap of our trip to Sacramento, California, we actually spent the majority of Sunday (December 5) in Seattle, Washington!!
Sunday morning got started bright and early with a 4:30 a.m. departure for the airport. After very little sleep all weekend long, I was exhausted, but I still had a fun day to look forward to!
With the way our travel plans worked, we ended up having an 8-hour layover in Seattle!! I was really excited because I’ve never been to Seattle, and I love visiting new places!!
We started our morning with a trip to the infamous Pike Place Market. We don’t have a very good farmer’s market in Anchorage, so I was beaming as I walked past all the fresh, home-grown produce. I was so giddy inside I could hardly contain myself!
Jenn and I did a little perusing at the local vendors.
I was so excited to buy home-grown produce from a farmer’s market!
The goods: 2 apples and some carrots. Of course we would have bought more if we weren’t traveling.
The purple ones had a hint of beet and the white-ish ones had a hint of turnip in them.
We also saw a “team of pigs” pulling Santa’s sleigh (minus the sleigh). (That one’s for you, Mom and Dad!)
And some bacon-flavored chocolate?!?! While it seemed like a good (??) idea, it was actually quite disgusting!!
Next stop: the Pacific Science Center to see. . . .
the Harry Potter exhibit!!
Jenn, Ross, and Craig
We couldn’t take pictures inside, but the exhibit contained a variety of costumes and props from the movies. It was fun to see all the different things from the movies, and it made me realize how much work went into making the movies!
Next, it was time to get some food to fill our bellies.
There was so many different options to choose from, and after filling my plate, I realized I had missed an entire bar of food!!
I also had a few bites of Craig’s sandwich. (I was a hungry girl!)
Craig and I split a couple of beverages.
Plus, we have been to Townhend’s Tea Company in Portland, OR. We both really enjoyed this brand of kombucha!
Craig also loves rhubarb, so he wanted to try this beverage as well. It was a good choice!
After hanging out and catching up with our friends, it was then time to go back to the airport.
Bummer! I wanted to stay!!
