What a weekend!!!

Wow, we had such a great long weekend up in Seattlefor our Yankee Game Weekend!!! We left Friday afternoon and headed to Seattle, checked into our hotel and then went to grab dinner and then swim in the pool. Saturday morning we got ready, had breakfast (our hotel had a awesome continental breakfast so we took advantage of that) then headed on to Seattle for the day. We went to Pike Street Market, the very first Starbucks, and down to the water for more shops. We had such a good time watching them throw fish, seeing all the beautiful flowers and vegies, and just watching people. We then headed to IKEA, trying to waste some time before we had to meet Dan and Andrea for the ball game. 3:00 we met at Pyramid Brewery across from Safeco Field for dinner before the BIG game. We were so excited to walk into Safeco field and once we got inside it was so amazing. We got to see bating practice and pitching practice. I think I got alittle starstruck, seeing all my favorite players ( Johnny Damon!!!!) up close. It was awesome. The game was so fun, Yankees won 7 to 3, and seeing them play in person is so surreal!

Sunday we slept in, had breakfast, did some shopping, then headed over to the Rodriguez's new home for a visit. It had been a long time since we had seen all of them and it was so nice to sit and chat while the kids played. We may have stayed alittle too long but we sure enjoyed our time with them, and hope to see them more often now.

We headed home about 5:30 and got home and relaxed a bit before going to bed. It is really nice to go away,but like Dorothy says, there really is....."No place like home!"
