Needle in space

Off to an Alaskan adventure.  I kept asking if we were in Alaska, but apparently we had to go to Seattle first.  But it was okay because I got my very own big girl bed in the hotel.  It was AWESOME!

Grandma and Grandpa were in the hotel too, right upstairs.  That's definitely my grandma!

After a good night's sleep, we headed out to see Seattle.  The famous needle.

Right next to it was a Children's Museum.  It was great.  I got to be a princess.

And practice some small craft sailing - good to know when preparing to go on a pirate ship (aka cruise).

Then we went down to the waterfront ... 

and checked out Pike's Place.

Our first totem pole.

I know Pike's Place is know for fish... but I loved all the fresh veggies & fruit and flowers galore.  Dahlias were in season and were everywhere for a $1 a stem.

Dahlias for Dahlia and a pirate ship to practice on and a Space Needle to climb and your very only "big girl" bed in the hotel and then the ship -- what an adventure!

Thank you for coming with me and Grandpa Ken on our vacation to Alaska! We had a great time with you and your brother. Maybe next year we'll go camping together?
