Seattle Adventure

Here you see my little B's with my "soul sister" Nicoley. This is a great view of downtown Seattle, right near her house in West Seattle. Her little Jason Brooks is nestled in that tummy of hers, which is covered by the scarf. I met Nicole when I worked at the University of Oregon School of Law, and it felt like I had found the sister I always wanted. She is the most amazing, wonderful, special person you will ever meet, truly! The kiddos had a fantastic time in Seattle, and actually didn't want to come home - can you believe that? But we DID eat the best donuts in the world, see flying fish, take our "first" taxi ride, view some incredible gingerbread houses (I mean real masterpieces!), see a wonderful Peter Pan play, go up the Space Needle (a little challenging for Big Mama...), go to Toys R Us and pick out whatever "we" wanted, go to the biggest Goodwill EVER and see a whole lot of fun people and buildings and man! I'm out of breath just typing it all...! We even saw the busses the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were on, since they were police escorted into town on FIVE busses, which went right by our car (her Roberto, as she calls him), and then we saw all the Seahawks fans in their football jerseys and game day apparel, which was fun. It was an AMAZING trip full of adventure. One of my favorite parts was the "play" they put on for Nicoley and I, which ended up with her being the main character. My stomach still hurts from laughing so hard! They sang the entire "Grinch" song, Jim Carrey style, also, which I need to have them do again so I can film them. Anyway, it was a wonderful way to start our "Christmas Vacation!" We are very grateful to Nicoley for making it so special and fun. She is due to have her first baby in the beginning of February, so she had little extra "somethin-somethin-" to carry around - cutest baby bump ever! Needless to say, we really liked Seattle... OH yah!
