What We Did This Weekend

We were going to take the train downtown, but since it is a commuter train, I guess it does not run on the weekend (because as you all know, no one works on the weekend, silly). So, we took the swanky Sound Transit bus.

We had to stop at Westlake Center Starbucks and get a hot chocolate, raspberry steamer and a "grande white chocolate mocha, 2%, extra hot, powder, no syrup" (la-de-dah).

The girls were unexpectedly turned into cartoon fish at Pike's Place Market. Thank God Sophie was allowed to keep her right hand which was strategically grasping a toothpick with a free sample of really, really good cheese.

We went to lunch at the Crab Pot. They give you mallets! They dump the food on the table! See how much Sophie loves clams? She is kissing it!

Sophie is driven mad by the amount of seafood she consumed.

Maya discovers a new way to eat crab. Hammer crab like crazy, eat crab meat, stuff entire lemon wedge in mouth. Repeat.

At the end of the day. The token "Picture with the Pig" at the Market. (Behind, note all the people.... that is where the famous "Flying Fish Market" is.)

Oh, Anika, I know many secrety secrets of the market. The steamed hum-bow, the smelly funny soap place, the mummies (yes, real mummies). It will be fun, fun, fun.....

Wow...what an awesome day! I want to come visit and go there with my boys. :)

Oh oh OH! That food looks so yummy (especially the corn. I love corn). We probably have places like that here in Sydney, but not where I live... maybe at the Fish Markets.

Your girls are also very pretty and look like they had fun! :)
