I had bought a Groupon for a Savor Seattle food and cultural tour of Pike Place Market for Monday morning. We met up at Market Theater which is known for it's Gum Wall! It is just as gross as it sounds, but also pretty cool!
|Mini Donuts, Market Spice Tea (I don't like tea, but their signature stuff was amazing!),|
Tyler, our guide, at the flying fish stand, Pike Place Chowder
|Chukar Cherries (chocolate covered fruits), Beecher's Mac and Cheese,|
Piroshky - Piroshky (Russian meat pies), tastes just like Runza!
Parker took a snooze for about 30 minutes of the 2 hour tour.
We had so much fun, and would certainly recommend this to anyone visiting Seattle! Parker loved the tour too and even gave Tyler a hug when it was over.
Tuesday started with a tour of Chihuly Garden and Glass. If you haven't heard of Dale Chihuly, you have some googling to do! He is an incredible glass artist and is known for his elaborate blown glass pieces. Chihuly Garden and Glass is a museum/atrium/courtyard that his full of his art. It is almost directly below the Space Needle. The pictures don't do it justice...

|South - Downtown, Stadiums|
We stopped at one of the nick-nack shops and found this adorable piggy bank for Parker. We had just been talking about getting him one and it was a nice memento of his first longer-than-a-weekend vacation. My dad put in the first coin!
That's it for this post...The final post will include the baseball game and our final day trip to Bremerton.
