Seattle and Portland Conquered, and June's Currently..

Boy..I sure feel like I have been starting every post talking about how it's been awhile. What a terrible blogger :( I promise to try and be more diligent this summer!!

My boy and I have had a wonderful 9 day vacation conquering Seattle and Portland. It was lovely, and believe it or not we absolutely enjoyed the cold and rainy weather! It was nice to get away from the heat and sunshine for a bit :P

In Seattle, We were lucky enough to stay with my Aunty on the beautiful Bainbridge Island. Each day we needed to catch a ferry to and from Bainbridge to Seattle. It was a nice 30 minute ferry ride.
This is the beautiful view we saw each day as we were leaving Seattle.

We did a wonderful tour by Savor Seattle and went through Pike Place Market. We went to about 14 of the most popular spots in the market and got a sampling of their most popular items. At each stop we sampled about 2-3 different things. This was one of the highlights of my trip, and if you are in Seattle or even live near the area..I highly suggest checking this out. They talk about the history of the market and give a lot of background information about the sellers and the market itself. We also sampled some amazing foods and snacks that we would have NEVER stopped to try in the first place.
One of the MANY fruit and vegetable stands in the market. This place has the sweetest fruits at such great prices!!
There were a ton of BEAUTIFUL fresh flower bouquet stands. These bouquets were only $5,$7, and $15. What a deal!!
Some Fresh seafood..and of course, the famous flying fish!! A lady on our tour actually got to catch the flying fish!!
Some DELICIOUS Mac N Cheese :)

In Portland, we did a TON of shopping!! I've never shopped from sun up till sun down for 3 days straight before. Literally, we would wake up and head out at 8, get to the malls by 10, and shop till dinner time. We then stayed out and explored Portland and got home around 10 or 11 each night. We did take a little break from shopping though and did a breathtaking hike to Multnomah Falls.
Yep, that's me. All bundled up and cold :P 
Isn't this absolutely breath taking?? You hike up to about the middle of the falls and feel the mist all over your face!! 
And..I'm soon heading back to reality and will be able to reminisce and go through all of our wonderful pictures :) I'm linking up to Farley again and here's my Currently for the month of June.. June already? Geez I need to start making use of my time when I get back home :P
