Sleepless in Seattle

The birthday trip to Seattle was a roaring success. Pike's Place Market was a blast, so full of colorful flowers, local artwork, and low-flying fish. I even managed to make myself a walking attraction after I purchased a donut that was about 10" in diameter. I counted about a dozen double-takes, twenty "Did you see the size of that donut" exlamations, two firghtened children and one old lady even took my picture.

Shawn was a blast to hang out with and definitely showed us around the town. His office is incredibly posh, his pad has a view that would rival my old apartment in downtown Chi-town, and he has access to some kick-ass clam chowda! He even told us about his work's alternative commute program, which includes special incentives for getting to work by walking, biking, or even kayaking! Birthday festivities included libations, fire, cake and smores.

It was a whirlwind weekend adventure, and even with going to bed at 1:30am and waking up three hours later for our flight, we had a blast! Pictures to come later... especially of that donut.

Mmmmm... humongous donut... Arlghghghh...

Everyone, you have no idea how obsessed Austin is with that doughnut. It seriously runs his life now.
