A Sunny Day in Seattle


During our trip to Washington we took a small road trip up north to Seattle to visit my brother Steve and his partner Jason.  It was so great meeting Jason, who I have heard much about, and he is such a great guy! :)  My Mom, Celeste, Brooks, Aves, and I drove up Tuesday night and met up with my Dad and Corrie who had just spent a few days backpacking together in Northern Washington.  We stayed in an adorable condo that had a view of the city, Space Needle and all. Sadly Dad had to leave early for a business trip, but the rest of us woke up and made blueberry pancakes, which we enjoyed with the most delicious pastries Steve and Jason brought from Macrina Bakery. Brooks and Jason watched the cars from the balcony (Brooks was in heaven) and we got lots of smiles from Ava in Uncle Steve's arms. We packed up and headed out for our day in the city. First walking through the incredible Olympic Sculpture Park, then the Public Market for lunch. Oh the clam chowder hit the spot. Brooks was not a fan of the fish guy ;) but absolutely loved the street musicians, he's got rhythm in his bones. And I'm now regretting not buying a bouquet of those fresh flowers. :) After a non-stop morning and afternoon, our little Brooks was more than ready to catch some zzz's...he fell asleep on the way to Steve and Jason's and continued his nap while we looked around their house/gallery. Steve and Jason are both incredible artists and their place is dripping with creativity! It was awesome seeing their work and talking to them about it all.  We ended the gorgeous day with a picnic at the park. Thanks so much Steve and Jason for such a fun day! 

Can't wait to go back! Next time, with Adam. :)

I want to say how wonderful it is to see you, as a Mormon, be so loving LGBT friendly. ESPECIALLY with your brother and giving him love and support. It warms my heart because its a very important subject to me. I love Seattle. I just wish there were more sun there!
