A couple of weeks ago, my cousin came up to visit her daughter that goes to UW for mother’s day. She brought her other daughter with her and we all decided to trek on down to Pike Place Market!! These shots are not technically perfect…maybe even “snap shotty”, but navigating through the crowded market with my two kids in tow is a challenge in itself!! So I was lucky to get any snaps!! LOL! We had a great time and got to show them the sites!
Just some shots of the city people. The guy below was tending to our very favorite donut shop in the market. It has the greasiest, little donuts…but they are soooo good! Doesn’t he look thrilled to have me taking shots of him?
Of course we had to stop at Starbucks. We have many streets in Seattle that have a Starbucks on each corner…so we frequent them often. This Starbuck’s is special though, because it is the very first one!! It is where the madness began!!
The famous “Flying Fish” vendors!
Shots outside the market. Lauren and daddy taking a break in the middle of the road. It was closed off today. It is also very bright and sunny…something we are not used to in Seattle! HaHa!!
The girls all stopping for a shot and Ian, my brother getting in on the action. He is sporting his “new stash”. It is now gone…that was a short phase, thankfully!
My cousin and her daughters!! So beautiful!
Another street vendor. My girls did not believe he was real, until someone gave him money and he came off his podium to shake their hand and then FROZE again! Not great shots of him, but his make-up was amazing!
After going through the market we hopped on the underground buses and headed to the international district. It was a short ride and we did it more for fun…so after a few minutes there, we hopped on the new sound Transit for the ride home!! It was a fun day of sight seeing…bus riding, train riding and eating!! My cousin said she felt like she went on a full vacation in just the 4 hours we were there!! LOL!
