"Erica's" Visit...

... well, Eric actually... but, Maeve called him Erica all weekend long, and then I found myself calling the poor guy 'Erica' too at times. Sorry Eric. Anyway, Eric, my cousin, flew in from California for the weekend for a visit and a chance to meet Maeve for the first time (Another cousin, Ashley, was supposed to be doing the same thing, but an airline mishap prevented her visit... sad). It was so great to catch up with Eric and find a reason to be a tourist again in my own city. We were busy. We managed walks and playground fun, an EMP visit, a ferry ride to a local island to visit close friends and take in the scenery, dinner and a movie out with a different set of close friends, a hike, plus the requisite Pike Place Market tour and seafood dinner on the wharf. Phew...

Such a trooper with Maeve, as you can tell...


Watch out Seattle..


Who doesn't like a ferry ride?


Jeff and Carin graciously opened their home and fed us lunch...


Hiking (with everyone else in Seattle today... and I think I mean that literally)


A touristy holiday in Seattle is not complete until this fantastic place is visited

Thanks for a fun visit Eric!
