I love the days I spend at Pike Place Market. Even though I’ve been exploring it more in depth over the past year, I still get lost and I still find new things.  The other day, I walked up from one of the lower parking lots near where the Pike Place Market is expanding (right […]

Wildlights 2014 (Woodland Park Zoo, Seattle WA)

Wildlights at Woodland Park Zoo might be a newer light show in Seattle-it’s only on its third year-but we’ve been going since it started and it has become one of our family’s favorite Seattle holiday traditions.  The other night when we visited, the sky was bright and clear and there was still a dusting of […]
