Spring Break

The girls are on Spring Break this week.  Normally, we would need a sitter for at least 3 of the days but now that I am able to work from home up to two days per week (I rarely do because I'm so close) I am taking advantage of that opportunity and working from home Tuesday and Friday (my designated days) and took today (Monday) off.  Paul is taking Thursday off and Wednesday is the only day we need a sitter.  Love it.

So today we went to Seattle and had a great time.  We started out at the Seattle Public Library which is known for it's amazing architecture, then we went to the Sky View Observation deck on the 73rd floor of the Columbia Tower, another thing I have never done in all my years in this area.  The views were amazing.

We had wanted to go to Dick's for lunch (a Seattle Icon known for cheap, no-frills but delicious burgers--they've never been) but we would have had to drive and I had already parked the car and didn't want to pay for that, leave, come back and pay again (we still had stuff we wanted to do in the area), so instead we just walked down to the waterfront and ate there at the Crab Pot.  Then we went to a few shops, they each got a new sweatshirt, we got ice cream then came home.
