Seattle Part One

We went and had ourselves a lovely vacation. Seattle was the destination. We took the girls to the aquarium, zoo, and the science center.

The day we went to the aquarium was really the only summer like day we had in Seattle. It was really nice though. We went down to the piers and it took us a good 40 min to find a parking spot. We finally got one in front of the Ye Olde Curiosity Shop. That worked out great because that was going to be our last destination for the day.

I can say that our solid favorites were the seals, otters, octopus, and the touching pool...or whatever it's called.
We then explored the piers. We found some cool shops and a carousel. I just can't ride them. Put me on any roller coaster or thrill ride and I'm fine. Put me on a carousel? I'm going to barf, can't do it!
The Curiosity Shop is always a winner. We made sure to have enough quarters to do all of the cool vintage coin op stuff. I think we all liked the fortune teller the best.
Later we went back to the hotel and swam for close to two hours. It was the best way to unwind after walking all day, my feet hurt, bad. The hot tub was nice and miracle of miracles I got Jeff into it too. Jeff hates hot tubs and he insists anyone that has taken microbiology would share the same opinion. The hotel had nightly fresh baked cookies that were ready after our swim. Ahh, gotta love a vacation!

Box of Awesome is Ready

That's right! The Box of Awesome is getting shipped out this Friday. The final touches have been added. I only regret that I wasn't able to make anything edible for it's journey to the East Coast. I worried about freshness, sorry. Don't be dismayed though, I think the box is still very awesome.

And, while you're waiting for your Awesome to arrive,
please enjoy this awesome photo.

Like I promised, it's Box of Awesome time once again! Leave your comments, up to five entries a person. If you commented last week those shall count as entries too. The entries will be assigned a number and will be randomly picked out of a circa 1982 Maize Gold Tupperware bowl.

What comes in the Box of Awesome, you might be wondering. It is full of whatever I think will be awesome and would delight you to no end! I do encourage you to tell me things you'd like to find in your Box of Awesome, that will aid in the delighting. Don't get your hopes up for anything expensive or lavish though. Of course, the homemade peanut butter hot fudge that was in the box last year could've been considered lavish I suppose...awesome. Don't doubt the awesome!!!

Thanks for reading the DeCoursey Project and please enjoy the contest. It ends Friday, Friday, gotta be entered by Friday...5pm.

It's Box of Awesome time again. Blog traffic has slowed down to a near trickle and I don't know if I should hold the contest? Would anyone even care to enter? I don't know. What do you think....anyone?
