I love Fall, it is my absolute favorite season and here in Seattle this year we have been spoiled beyond belief by amazing weather sticking around well into October! I was recently driving home and passed this park by my house, I had to jump out and snap a few shots.
This growing family of three (soon to be four) and I had a great time on a recent sunny Saturday afternoon. We had not discussed clothing choices before hand, but when I arrived and saw them in their matching blue and white outfits and the beautiful cloudless blue sky, I knew we were going to get some striking images.
Enjoy our day at the beach!
Now that summer is “officially” over (although in Seattle we are still in the midst of some record breaking weather – so far 44 days in a row of no measurable rain) I wanted to post some shots from a few weeks ago when Seattle was celebrating it’s annual summer tradition of Sea-Fair . My brother and his wife are lucky enough to have a beautiful house that overlooks Lake Washington so they invited friends and family over to enjoy some yummy BBQ and watch the Blue Angels. I remember walking down to the lake as a child to watch this annual (well – mostly) event and getting to share some special “police officer” grapes with one of Seattle’s finest. (With my mother’s approval – otherwise the rule was never to take food from a stranger!). I’m so excited that my 2 year old nephew will have these memories of parties on the deck and the amazing stunts of the Blue Angels to think back on when he is grown.
Enjoy what I saw when the Blue Angels came to town!

The other day I went to the Fremont Sunday Market and parked right in front of this building. It is the Fremont Mischief Distillery. I loved the look of the building, the texture of the walls, the blue and copper colors together, and the pretty geraniums in the pot helped to remind me that spring really is coming, despite the gray, cloudy day.
Here is a little bit of what I saw in Fremont the other day,
