Seattle: Last Day of “Vacation”

We have finally arrived at the end of my parents’ stay in Bellingham. Before sending my mom and dad back to North Carolina’s summer heat, we thought it would be fun to spend the day exploring Seattle. We saw four things: the Space Needle, the Chihuly Glass Museum, Pike Place, and the Puget Sound. Here are the pics!

As you can tell, we had a very fun time in Seattle and a delightful week with my parents. It will very difficult to get back in the swing of our routine, but I’m ready to sink my teeth into chapter 3 of my thesis. (That’s right. I finished and submitted chapter 2 before my parents arrived. It still has some edits and kinks to work out, but significant progress is being made!
