Whirlwind Seattle Weekend, Starring My Mom

Because there's so much to report on, I'm writing this post in the whirlwind manner in which it was experienced.

My mom came to visit from the 18th-22nd. She got the whirlwind of Seattle while she was here. We hit Capitol Hill and downtown, including Pike's Market, then on the way home we went through Queen Anne and Wallingford on Thursday, Friday it was U-Village, Saturday we took a ferry (my first!)...

The View, thanks rain.

For Real Bainbridge Island, which was tame and cute, and milled around downtown, through the market, and went the Seattle Aquarium, and Sunday we went from the U-District, to Wallingford, to Gasworks Park,

to Fremont for FLAMING saganaki (mom's favorite), then Ballard for cupcakes (what else),

Royale with (Cream) Cheese at Cupcakes Royale!

and Dick's in Wallingford on the way home. The weather was grey and cruddy pretty much the whole time, which it hadn't been for months (what luck!) and it rained upon us almost the whole trip. Also, my phone was dead for much of the trip, so not so many photos. But we prevailed, and had an awesome, exhausting time anyway! Thanks for coming, mom!

Who will take the Weekend Whirlwind Seattle Challenge next???
