Actually, it was just pretty much Northwest. I keep trying to come up with the clever words to describe my vacation in such a way that it would sound like I went on this totally exciting and exotic trip. I didn't. What I did do was spend 11 days with good friends, eating delicious food, buying yummy yarn and sampling tasty local brews.
Tacoma was pretty tame. I mostly hung out with my friends Christopher and Sandra and their two urchins, ages 3.5 and 7. I am SO not used to the little people and they plain ol' wore me out. I don't know how they do it. Never mind the fact that the older boy is already smarter than I am (not that that's saying much).
I did get some touristy side trips in, when the kids let me stop playing for a while. There were a couple of soccer games – the Sounders v. San Jose Earthquakes the 13th and DCU the 17th.
My trip around Tacoma yielded some photos near the Museum of Glass – no photos allowed inside. 😦
There was a yarn store run in Seattle but I can't seem to get good pictures of the yarn I picked up at So Much Yarn. I'll try again during daylight tomorrow.
