Last weekend we decided to head out of town (well, out of the country, actually), we wanted to visit family in their newly purchased house in the U.S. so we would be able to see their new property and picture them in their new home. We had a visit (and I ate some Salmonberries for the first time in years) and then headed furthur south to the city of Seattle.
The boys had a fun visit (and their first ever visit) to a Lego store and I had my first visit to Trader Joe's. Oh, how I wish we had a Trader Joe's here, what a delightful store (with delightful staff too). My first visit there I bought a package of dark chocolate pretzel bark - who could resist right? It was on sale for 99 cents!
hand-dipped milkshakes at Dyck's Drive can be considered a meal!) while we played tourist and checked out the Museum of Flight, the Space Needle, Pike Place Market, the Pacific Science centre (love the butterfly room), the Washington Park Arboretum and much more. The combination of sweet dark chocolate and salty crunchy pretzel was delicious so of course I had to go back to get more. Lovely husband drove me back to the store and Only 1 Left! Horrors!! You can only imagine how happy I was when a friendly staff member phoned their store furthur up the road and found out they had plenty more. And I do mean plenty. Somehow I managed to restrain myself and only buy...ahem, 14 packages.
