Seattle... and too many pictures.

Last weekend we took a 24 hour trip to Seattle. It was pretty awesome. We took the ferry on the Puget Sound, went up the Space Needle twice, saw Inception at Imax, and check out downtown Seattle. I took a bunch of pictures on my cell phone, and here are a lot of them...

Susannah and me... being weird.
Some light reading on the way in the train...
Seattle from the ferry.



Susannah looking deceptively sweet...

And then strangling me...






This picture was too awesome not to put on my blog.


Sunset over Bainbridge Island.


After the ferry we walked through town to take the monorail over to our hotel and the space needle. We stopped at a Starbucks along with way, where Bethany got a delicious drink... It looked and tasted like blended up grass. Seriously.

Space Needle at night.
We got a deal on Space Needle tickets that allowed us to go up twice, once at night and once in the morning. It was cool to see the lights at night, and then see the view in the morning.

View from the Space Needle deck. I was disappointed there was wire barrier...
The Space Needle's design is pretty awesome.

Susannah with I-beam. At time of construction, these were the largest I-beams in the world.
View from the coffee shop at the top.
Awesome.

Chipotle!
I like pictures like this looking up at tall buildings.
I took a lot like this...
And another...
I think this picture came out really awesome.
Susannah with Library in background. Really cool architecture.
This was just too creepy not to post on my blog...

Weird little dude painted in the middle of the street.

At Pike's Place Market. Not my favorite and I was kind of bored...
[This is where I would have put a really amazing picture of Susannah's face with a whole doughnut in her mouth... but I didn't because I don't want her to hate me. You owe me one Susannah.]

Train trip home. Bethany was really grumpy... until they turned on a movie.
