A Seattle, WA Weekend Adventure

Last weekend I went on a family vacation to Seattle. I absolutely LOVE Seattle! It is one of my favorite cities, and I always leave wanting more. This was Zoey’s first visit there, and she absolutely loved it too. We stayed at the Four Seasons hotel which is right in the heart of downtown Seattle. We tried to fit as much in as possible. We went to the Aquarium, Zoo, Space Needle, Children’s Museum, Pike’s Place Market (more than once), and so much more! Here are some pictures from the trip.

 

Here is Zoey looking around from the hotel room.

We saw a beautiful elephant at the Woodland Zoo.

 

 

 

 

Zoey can’t pick her own nose, but the lion statue can’t complain.

Zookeeper Crushed By Elephant

An unidentified woman was sat on and crushed to death by an elephant she cared for. The 39-year-old elephant, named Mila, and also known as Jumbo, is the only elephant at the Franklin Zoo in Tuakau, 30 miles south of Auckland.

The next of kin¬†are being contacted.
