Seattle Trip May 2009

In addition to buying a new home, moving, and me getting a promotion at work, Tracy and I took a trip to Seattle in May. It was our first time there. Having grown up in Southern California coast I really enjoyed being near the water again. Tracy was there for the INTA conference. I was there just to get a vacation. We ate lots of great food. We went to the city center, aquarium, science center, music experience, space needle, and took a harbor cruise.
