the only earth?

snoqualmie falls

My mother and her friend have been in town for the weekend; so it's been kind of touristy in here. Saturday was a little drive out to Snoqualmie Falls (close, pretty, and Twin Peaksy) and having a look at the Olympic Sculpture Park. On Sunday we milled around the Sunday Market in Fremont followed by a raid of Theo's Chocolate, watched some sailboats going through the Locks, a driveby of Golden Gardens, a peek at the Suzzallo reading room, and the crowding into Thai Tom. They also became obsessed enough to do double brunching at Costal Kitchen.

In between, I went to a birthday party, had beet tacos, and tripped on the way home and scraped up my hand a bit on the sidewalk.

Today I sent them off to the Space Needle and the Public Market on their own. There is a certain level of tourist activity that I don't need to relive.
