Gramma and Grampa Pingel visited this last weekend, and we a great time. Besides being there to wake up with the kids in the morning, I also got to take a day off. It was so great!! Friday, we drove around to Bremerton to take the Ferry across the Puget Sound to Seattle, so the first time Karen and Jerry got to see and enter Seattle was from the water. Driving through Bremerton is always cool because you drive by a Navy Shipyard and see all the old aircraft carriers and ships. They had a great time on the Ferry ride, awing over the beauty of the Seattle area. We went to Pike Place Market first, and they got to see them throw the fish and put on the show at the Fish Market. From there we went to the Westlake Center Mall and took the Monorail over to the Seattle Center to see Key Arena and the Space Needle. Saturday morning, Lindsey entertained us all with her interpretive dances to Pat Benetar songs on Jerry's iPod (Yep, Jerry has Pat Benetar on his iPod). Once we got out of the house we went up to the UW campus and then over to the Temple in Bellevue. It was fun to show Gramma and Grampa the floating bridges across Lake Washington, and the boys always have a great time driving through tunnels under Mercer Island on the way to Bellevue.
