We made the most of the clear skies with a trip to the Seattle Space Needle - a great way to get perspective on the city and fun for the kids too. It's right next door to the beautiful EMP Museum (which everyone raves about) - must put that on the to-do list next time.
We also split up one day - the boys headed to the Boeing Factory for a tour and then a craft beer brewery, while we frocked up for high tea at the Queen Mary tea room. It was so cute-kitsch with floor-to-ceiling florals, corgis, sweet treats and beautiful tea cups. Never mind breaking one - the shards are embedded in fun mosaics on the footpath. (by the way, everyone in there was dressed up, and I'm talking hats, gloves and tiaras; those crazy Yanks!).
And that concludes my mini-tour of our family holiday; back to the real world and cooler temps in Sydney. Let me know if you have any great Seattle travel tips - we'll be back!
