Mom's Seattle Vacation

Mom is back and we are happy to have her back.  She had an absolute blast in Seattle!
The one thing that was just so amazing to her was the snow-capped mountains.  She just couldn't get enough of them.
They are absolutely incredible to see - especially from the AirePlane!



Mom stayed with Aunt Lydia for the first 4 days and they stayed busy busy~
Dave, Lydia's AireBoy, is a master at playing frisbee.  He never gets enough of it!


And Sophie LOVES tennis balls like Molly does!  She's obsessed and would play 24/7.  Now where have we heard that story before!

Mom had her picture taken with Dave and Sophie on their garden bench~

Two very happy pups.  Can you tell that treats are about to be handed out here?

An evening walk to see the sunset~
Mom, Auntie Lydia and Putter's mom, Kate, rode the Great Wheel!
 The views were breathtaking!

And they visited Pike's Place Market~
When a customer purchases a fish they toss the fish back and forth before they wrap it.  It's a huge attraction!

Tulips were everywhere.

They went to the Space Needle for lunch~
 And saw more snow-capped mountains from the top of the Space Needle.
 And the fabulous Mt. Rainier.  The views were awesome!
And mom saw the Fremont troll that lives under a bridge~

As you can guess, coming home after being gone for eight days is not easy.  There is so much to catch up with!   Our Feedly reader has over 350 blog posts to read and we are feeling a bit overwhelmed.   We may need to do the mark all as read thingy and start clean.    If anyone has important news that we need to know, please tell us.  

Stay tuned for more of mom's Seattle trip.  Mom says that going through the pictures is "almost" like being there.

So until next time..............

Love ya lots♥
Mitch and Molly

We are glad your Mom had a good time. Please ask her if they dropped any fish while she was at the Pike St. Market? That would be a big draw for terriers!

We hope you got a goodly amount of treats from your dad while your Mom was gone. We think doggies need MORE treats than usual when they have been abandoned by their Muzzers!

Glad mum had a good time and it sure looked like a great place to visit. We think mum should wipe the slate clean as they say and just start from today and not try to catch up on blog posts. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
Best wishes Molly

Jake of Florida said...

I'm so glad your mom saw the flowers at the market. They are so beautiful -- much fresher and long-lasting than those that come by air from someplace else.

My mom loves Seattle too!!!

But I know you are ecstatic that she's home. (And maybe she is too.)

Wirey woof,

Wow, what a great trip! The photos are amazing. I love snow-covered mountains like your mom does. I'm so glad she had so much fun.

I adore your cousins. I can't believe that Lydia has two airedales!

I accidentally hit that "mark all as read" on Feedly recently. At first, I was really upset but then it just de-stressed me. So, do it!
