Mark and I decided to take a weekend mini-vacation to Seattle, Washington.  We headed out on Thursday after work and drove a few hours before stopping at a hotel to swim, rest and eat dinner.  We then headed out Friday morning for a few hours of drive and then went to the Seattle Zoo.  We had a great time checking out all the animals and the beautiful weather.  The next day we went to the aquarium and had great food (that is one of the best parts of Seattle).  We met up with my brother, his wife and my niece for a big seafood feast at a restaurant called The Crab Pot.  Yum!!  We also took in the 3D version of the movie the Great and Powerful Oz.  Great movie, fun family time, relaxation, good food, being together.  Nothing better!!

Here was a bunch of snow that had been piled high on the mountain summit going into Seattle.  Crazy tall!!

 Chase could spend all day swinging on grandma and grandpa's swing.  He thought it would be funny to go hands free as he was over the edge of the rock...our hearts stopped and he was quickly lectured on the importance of not letting go.

 Chase wanted a picture of him with "Nemo"
