Project Life 2014 ~ April 11 - 14 (Seattle and Vancouver)

Project Life 2014

April 11

With the arrangement of our neighbor taking care of Papi, I am feeling a little better leaving home. We arrived at The W Hotel, Seattle at 1.15 AM. Great location, lovely room.

First thing I get up in the morning is to look at Papi cam and happened to see Diane at our house and happy that Papi get someone to play with for a while, compared to having him at PetSmart hotel, this arrangement is a lot better.


We had lunch with a friend at Purple Cafe and Wine Bar, nice place, great food, and I love the white berry tea, yum.....


After lunch I walk to Pike place market on my own while husband at work, I always enjoy these "lone time", walk around, eat doughnut, watch Papi on my phone once in a while, knowing that he is in good care makes me happy.



It is Spring in Seattle, lovely bloom everywhere....




and I happened to bumped into my favorite kind of store, Watson Kennedy, you can imagine how much time I spent in there....



I always love Pike Place Market, no matter how many times I've been there...




After dinner, we went for a baseball game.


April 12

We drive to Vancouver today, I am quite sad as I miss Papi so much, I want to go home! : (




We stay at the Four Seasons in Vancouver, ver nice big room, we even have full bathroom so we each have our own, LOL!
Dinner at Shuraku, nice ramen!


April 13, 14

I go for a walk by the water today, it is Spring and everywhere I go, I see pretty bloom








 I took my 20 month old son to Vancouver twenty something years ago, I still remember clearly, his smiling little face while sitting on the swing. I need to walk to Stanley park, just for old time sake. It's a 50 minutes walk from the water








like any other city in the world, real estate by the water are for rich men.




however, the abundant natural beauty in the Spring is free for all...







I finally get to Stanley Park, didn't walk deep into the park though as we have an early evening flight to catch, I am going home to see Papi, YAY!!!



I take a different route back to the hotel this time, it is a lot shorter






 now I am really really excited that I get to see this sweet face tonight when we get home






Movie Night


We went to Spider Man 2 last night, I like the last one better.

Those are amazing photos my friend. Looks like you had an awesome time. And I am Happy you where able to find someone to watch Papi. :) I LOVE seeing photo of where you use go.

We are here in Estes Park and it is beautiful. But no campers yet. There was a flood here last year and it washed out the campground. They will have it fixed by July. So we will just enjoy and visit till then. Have you guys been to Boulder or Fort Collins CO?

Hugs~
