More Flat Friend Adventures

My flat friends are packed and ready to go on another adventure. As you know from my previous post, they had a blast in Forks, WA; home of Edward and Bella from Stephanie Meyer's Twilight series. This adventure is no where near as dangerous as hunting for vampires, but these girls do like to enjoy themselves.

Here they are on the plane flying out of Dallas. They had quite and interesting conversation with a young man from Nigeria while I napped. Apparently, they got into a bit of mischief because when I woke up they were looking a bit worse for the wear. Thankfully, I brought along some popsicle sticks and some glue. I was able to fix them up so that they didn't have to miss out on any of the fun.

We didn't land and get settled in until after 2am Seattle time so, I had to drag them out of bed the next morning. Fortunately, we were staying at my sister-in-law's house so the girls had a room to themselves.

Being as tired as we were, our first stop was obviously at Starbucks #1. I mean how can you go to Seattle and not stop at the very first Starbucks? I had my usual, a grande java chip frappuccino with a shot of espresso. I don't remember what the girls ordered, they were so busy chatting with everyone in line about their little adventure and of course they had to get a snap shot to commemorate their experience.

Next, we had to eat! My husband was in charge of picking the place since he knew all the great spots. Here you can see the girls sitting out on Pier 56 at Elliott's Oyster House. They had one whole page of all the different types of oysters they offered. The girls once again gorged themselves on oysters and shrimp. Honestly, it's hopeless trying to taking them anywhere.

We drove around and visited some of my husbands old haunts, but after a while the girls were begging me to let them out and stretch their legs. My sister-in-law was nice enough to snap a picture of me with the girls on the beach.

All in all I'd say we had a great day!
