Just a few more photos from our trip to Seattle.  Extended weekend trips are kind of the best.  I think they should be taken every other weekend.  Don’t you agree?  On a completely unrelated note, the temperature in Seattle dropped substantially so I busted out my giant parka for the remainder of the trip.  Parkas in the summer??  It happened.

One morning, we grabbed a few pastries and picnicked at Olympic Sculpture Park.  It’s such a peaceful spot overlooking the Sound and I literally could’ve sat there all day.  Next time, I will.  Oh, and I kinda dig those red chairs.

Then we did some touristy stuff, like visit the Space Needle center and ride the famous Alweg Monorail.

Did I mention that we stayed at Ace Hotel in Seattle?  I love that hotel so much.  I’ve now stayed at every Ace location, do I get some sort of prize?  Kyle and I have already decided that we’re staying in the new downtown LA Ace as soon as it opens, even though we live in LA.  WORTH IT.

We also went to Melrose Market in Capitol Hill.  Easily one of my favorite places in Seattle!!  It’s fairly small with only a handful of vendors but so worth the visit.  We had sandwiches at Homegrown and they were healthy and delicious.  One of Seattle’s best restaurants, Sitka & Spruce, is situated right in the market as well.  There’s also a flower shop, a decor/crafts shop, a wine and cheese vendor, and a butcher.  So neat!

On our last morning, we ventured up to Kerry Park and it had the most spectacular views of downtown.

Also, I was really bad at taking photos during meals for some reason (blog fail, I know), which is why there hasn’t been much food talk in these Seattle photo diaries.  But in the next post, I will share all the restaurants we went to!
