Our Seattle weekend!!

We have returned safely, soundly, and OH SO TIRED! But it was well worth the fun we had! Here is a rundown of our trip!
On Thursday morning we left for Seattle. When we arrived that afternoon, we got a really nice rental car, and if it were in our budget, i would really like a car like that. It was a Pontiac G6. Then we went to a nice lunch at 13 coins. Then we rode on the ferry! What a fun thing to do! I really liked it because we could just park the car, and ride and play for an hour instead or being stuck in the car driving!waiting in the car for the ferry to let us on!

Then on Friday, Ben had his interview at 7:30 am. So Lucy and I got ready and went to our friends house. We were able to see Marcie and Melanie for most of the day! Marcie made us a delicious chicken salad sandwich lunch and we were able to chit chat for a bit!
After Ben's interview I asked him how it went, and he thought it went well. But we won't hear anything for about 2 weeks.

On Saturday, we had a fun-filled day with our good friends Ben, Marcie, and Melanie! We all went to Tacoma and rode on a fun train with Santa. It was funny to see Lucy and Melanie with Santa, they were both very skeptical!

After our sweet train ride, we all went out to eat! We weren't really sure of the area, so we picked a place from the GPS, and it turned out great! We ate at Anthony's restaurant right on the water. It was so pretty! The food was great and the company was best!! We always have so much fun with Ben and Marcie. We love them so much and who knows, maybe we will be spending a lot more time together!
