So, I've kind of been slacking and I was going to write a blog about my Seattle trip all last week but alas, I never did. So I shall do it now!
I went on a business trip two weekends ago with my father, one of his associate doctors, and the CA from his office. We left on Friday afternoon and got there that evening. We all had dinner that night with my grandparents. That was a crazy hilarious dinner!!! Carol and I absolutely could hardly keep from laughing the whole time!
That night when we finally got to our hotel there was a fabulous discovery! We had sleep number beds which weren't the most comfortable beds in the world, but it made for several hours of entertainment during our stay there! Ok, so apparently we're only 5 years old!
Saturday was pretty much meetings during the day and I got to go out with my good friend Matt that night! It was a blast! He took me to a great Vietnamese restaurant which has, very possibly, the best name I've ever seen! For those of you who don't speak Vietnamese there is a dish called phu (except that the 'u' has a little swish over it) and it's pronounced fa. Anyway, this is a picture of the restaurant.
Unfortunately I forgot my camera, so I didn't get a lot of pictures from that night, but I did have my phone so I got a couple with that. We went back and he showed me his apartment and I got to see his sweet puppy Luke! He's such a great dog! After that, I got to see where Matt works. It's a great studio type place that is on Microsoft campus. It has some crazy computers with an amazing amount of cables and some HUGE batteries!
It was a blast! I had such a great time!
Sunday was pretty chill. We went to some meetings then we went and played in Seattle all day. We went to Pike market and browsed the little shops there. We also saw them throwing fish at the fresh market and a couple of crazy street performers fighting over their 'turf'. It was pretty entertaining!
It got nice and sunny so we decided to go on a ferry boat ride. It was quite lovely and we even got to see Mount Rainier. Pretty cool!
We got over to the airport with very little craziness! Of course, with the given group a little bit of craziness is always present, but given that is par for the course, it was relatively tame! Overall, it was a very fun trip and it was so great to see family and friends that I haven't seen in ages! Good times!
