On our little road trip last weekend, Ryan and I decided to plan a fun "just us" getaway this year. I think it's so important (especially now that we have Molly) to take some time alone, leave Molly with some grandparents for a few days, and go somewhere fun together. We haven't traveled anywhere since our "babymoon" to St. Thomas in April 2011, so we were excited to try something different this time! We threw around some ideas of places we'd never been like San Francisco, a road trip through New England (Maine, Vermont, Massachusetts), Myrtle Beach and Seattle.
And tonight, after Ryan got home from work, we talked for a few minutes and decided to spend 5 days in Seattle this fall! Within an hour, I had booked our hotel and flights! I am SO excited to get out of town after the (sure to be) crazy hot Texas summer and see someplace new (and possibly chilly)!
For me, planning the trip is just as fun as the trip itself, so I'm already having a blast making all the arrangements and researching fun things to do! We'll definitely go to the Space Needle, original Starbucks, and we're staying at a hotel in Pike Place Market, so we'll be in the heart of Seattle! I definitely want to see some beautiful countryside and go on a ferry ride as well.
I wouldn't mind seeing all the houseboats and pretending I'm hanging out with Tom Hanks, but I'm pretty sure Ryan won't think that's a blast.
I also wouldn't mind driving the 3.5 hours over to this little gem of a town, but again, thinking Ryan won't even budge on that one.
Seriously though, if anyone has any other fun ideas of things to do in Seattle, I'd love to hear your recommendations!!! I'm SOOOO excited! I love trips!
