Visit From Trick and Mel

The Space Needle.

D and my parents at the top of the Needle.

My parents came out to visit us this past weekend and we were able to do the fun touristy things in Seattle that we haven't had a chance to do yet. We went to the original REI store in Seattle and followed that up by hitting the top of the Space Needle!

We stayed in a cool hotel downtown and went out to P.F. Changs for dinner, which was exactly what I had been craving! Yum! On Saturday there was the Seattle Urban Race (not sure of the exact name) and it looked super fun. My dad talked to the race organizers and they were telling him some of the things the teams had to do. The first stop was one of a few bars and they had to taste several different beers and choose the one that matched what they were looking for. Then they had to ride public transportation and complete a Sudoku puzzle. Throughout the course of the day we saw a lot of different teams running around the city and eventually we somehow ended up at the finish line when the final team was finishing!

Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning we hit up Pike Place Market and the original Starbucks store. Sunday morning we went there for breakfast and between the 4 of us, we polished off 3 dozen of the freshly-made mini donuts. They were to die for! Some of them were plain (and piping hot) while others had powdered sugar, chocolate and sprinkles, and cinnamon sugar all over them. Yum!
