We spent all of Sunday celebrating David. I know that he isn’t a father yet, but he is an incredible husband and I wanted him to feel loved. He got back Sunday from a long night of standing watch so I let him rest and made him a big breakfast (scrambled eggs with the works and Pierogi with maple syrup – it is actually really good). We then headed out the door to the Edmonds Art Festival. There are so many fun things going on in our surrounding areas right now that we are trying to get to a few (especially when they are free). The Festival was so much fun with every craft from paintings, to ceramics, to blown glass. We didn’t get anything, but enjoyed the sun and just looking. I took a picture but all you can see are the white tarps. If you look closely you can see how close the water is. It just makes it all the more fun.
The next stop was at Pike Place Market. Of course to get there you have to pass one of my favorite sights in Seattle, the Space Needle. It is just so cool. I love going by it, I really don’t know why, but it sure intrigues me. I have driven by it so many times but every time I have to remind myself to focus on the road.
So we headed down to Pike Place Market because there is a Latino Market and it has gourds. David’s gourd for his mate cracked so it was a good excuse to go. We walked in and were like two little kids in a candy store. All of the good food!!! We kept pointing and drooling. Not really, but close. We bought the gourd and as you can see a couple other things. I think we bought food from at least four different countries. SOOOO GOOD!
We also ended up stopping at the Original Starbucks and getting a little cup and saucer. There weren’t many mugs to pick from, but we like what we bought. Our day ended by the Mukilteo Ferry at a Restaurant called Arnie’s. The Nurses I worked with this past year were so sweet and gave us a gift card to eat there. We had a beautiful view as you can see and really enjoyed our time. (Thank you ladies!) It is so relaxing down there with the light house, the water, the ferry, the train …I just love it.
