i just thought about grey's the whole time

day 2:

this is an awful picture, but it's too hilarious.
makes me miss those girls even more!
the display they are modeling was from a crazy expensive store 
that i remember nothing about except for the bajillion sewing machines.
so, that's cool.
after killing some time we made it to our ride the ducks tour.
seriously you guys.  this is some of the best money i spent on this trip.  and it wasn't that cheap.
basically you ride around in an old military bus/boat
and explore the best land/water that seattle has to offer.
captain sid e. slicker.
he was quite the entertaining fellow. 
if i wasn't cheap, gratuities would definitely have been given for a job well done.
dancing and costume changes make me happy.

did you know there is a difference between house boats and floating homes?
there is.  can you guess which one this is?
cause i can't remember.
sail boats just remind me of home.  
i didn't want to go home while i was in seattle, but i do now!
anyway, it was gorgeous.
recognize the red floating home?
it's the real sleepless in seattle house!
we crossed paths with another duck group and it was special.
right before we saw this cool plane land on the water,
we passed by the mother of one of the guys on the tour.
she was just chilling, paddleboarding in the lake.
i want to be that.
a crazy old factory they fenced around and turned into a park.
i just keep getting more photogenic as the trip goes on.
i don't know what it is.
sid had earrings and tattoos too.
which you know i loved.
besides the super authentic (not) piroshky that i make my family slave over during the holidays, 
this is the best i've ever had.  i even got a t-shirt.
but there were so many options, i just couldn't even handle it.
apparently it's a pretty popular place because several people recommended it to us,
and there was quite the line for such a teeny space
bottom line: worth it.
we saw a band.
of navy men.
and we liked it.
oldest sister, especially.
and me, cause i'm the only single sister.
it's weird being the only single one.
at night when they call their husbands and kids, i'm like, "heyyyy mom."
but i actually didn't because i thought that might be desperate. 
i saw a kinfolk magazine in person! at anthroplogie!
we walked though pike's place again and i decided that the fish men
were slightly less entertaining than i was expecting.
i laugh so hard.  i don't remember which sister took this, but it is prime.
on our way back to the ghetto, we saw our first installment of seattle's famous street art.  
i actually don't remember exactly what they called it, but once we saw it, it was all over.
interesting stuff.  i'm pretty sure water came out of this one.
we ended the night with some super delicious sushi.  
i don't think i've ever ordered seconds before, but we definitely did that night.
this is my sister before she tried a super raw roll.
she looks happy.
