Seattle - Getting There and The Zoo

We were blessed to be able to spend a week with my sister and her family in Seattle, Washington at the end of June. Thank you, Aunt T, for the spring birthday girls plane tickets. Washington is quite lush and the climate significantly cooler. I even had on a sweater a few days! Our days there were filled with LOTS of cousin time, running around with the dog, playing, a trip to the zoo, lunch at a little market place, a trip to Pike's Peak, lots of good food, lounging on my sister's back porch (which is a wee piece of heaven), and did I mention play? Here's a bit of the story ...

Getting acquainted with the kitty. This one is Shrek.

Getting used to the miniature horse, I mean, dog.
This is an Akita and he is still a puppy ...
a huge puppy! :) And, baby girl LOVED to feed him treats!

This penguin was so cool!
