Look how ridiculously gigantic my head is next to hers. This was right at Owen Beach in Point Defiance Park. We were just about to climb a gigantic hill up to the trail so I wanted to get a picture before.
Anyhooser the trip itself was amazing! We had such a wonderful time. On Saturday we went to Point Defiance Park and walked around the paths, talking about just about everything under the sun (and yes some stuff about babies). The Taste of Tacoma was going on at one end, so we worked our way there and had some yummy snacks for lunch. Then we made our way back to the car by way of the beach. It was just absolutely beautiful. It was sunny and warm. And yes that thick green lush landscape is really beautiful like she had said. We must have walked 5 miles so we came home, sat in the living room and recouperated. Then we went in search of dinner. And meeting up with Bret isn't complete until a stop is made at Panera. We found one! Woohoo. After yummy soup in bread bowls we headed back home for a movie and then bed.
Corned Beef Sliders, yum!
Of course I had to have a picture of this handsome guy.On Sunday we set off for Seattle. It was Gay Pride weekend in Seattle, so we made our way to the parade route to watch. It was a ton of fun and there were so many people there it was insane. After watching for about an hour we walked up to Seattle's Best to grab a hot chocolate. It wasn't cold that day, but it was overcast and just perfect for wearing a t-shirt and drinking a hot chocolate. As we were making our way up the parade route to find a way to cross, we found a Qdoba truck that was giving away a free street taco and a coupon for a free street taco meal. Awesome. So we had a little snack, found our way across the street and walked down to Pike's Place Market. After walking around the market we decided to take our chances at finding a Qdoba. Might as well get free lunch. Sure enough we stumbled upon it. Awesome! After our yummy free meal we walked up to the Seattle library which was designed by Rem Koolhaas. I remember when it was first built and featured in Architecture magazine. I really wanted to see it in person back then and it definitely didn't disappoint. Of course, I have heard it is not at all functional as a library, things are hard to find, etc. But it is a very interesting building.
It just so happened that my cousin from Spokane was in Seattle that weekend visiting a friend of hers, so I got a hold of her and we decided to walk over to meet her for a little while. Turns out her friend's apartment was about two miles away, but whatever we were feeling good. We rested in their living room for a couple of hours and chatted with my cousin, and a big group o' gays. They were hilarious. Since I had to be at the airport really early the next morning, we decided to head out. The walk back to the car seemed to breeze by, but it was wonderful seeing so much of Seattle. I think between Saturday and Sunday we walked at least 10 miles if not more.
"The Gay Team" hahaha.
