Sleepless in Seattle is right!!!

Well, we are finally here and finally unpacked! Yesterday we finished unloading the last of the boxes and got a couch. It looks and feels really nice...but home we have yet to call it. It feels more like we are guests at some really nice resort that we would love to call our home...I think after a couple parties and some evenings after a long day of work, it will soon feel like "home."

The weather has been amazing the whole week we have been here. I feel like we need to make the most of every day (outside some how) because we quickly got the impression that these days are few between!!!

The drive out West was beyond words. I thought that I would cramp up and die or that my severe ADD would cause Doug to kill me...but it didn't. We were to aw-struck to ever be board!

Below is part one of the video series of our journey , enjoy...and the drive is recommended to everyone!
Love you all and miss you tons! the endels

The Seattle Run Down














Tuesday (Sept 25) bright and early the journy began! We landed in Seattle, got our super fly Audi Q7 and drove to Dr. White's house in Kirkland. Went to lunch at the Belching Frog (that's what I said) and began our tour of the area!







We started in downtown Kirkland were Doug will be working. It is located on the Puget Sound which is a body of water lying east of Admiralty Inlet, through which ocean waters reach inland some 50 miles from the Pacific Coast to provide all-weather ports for ocean-going ships at Seattle, Tacoma and Olympia. Nice town, parks, shopping, icecream...what more could you want?!



Redmond is where we are living. Picture Easton Town Center! We reside in the Cleveland, on Cleveland Street (how appropriate!) with outdoor shopping in front of us, bike paths behind us and Whole Foods down the street. Everything is within walking distance and the road have lanes for bikes!!!!



Seattle is 20 minutes from us...if there is no traffic! Wednesday night we ate at the Columbia Tower Club, located at the top floor of the 'highest building West of the Mississippi River!' We are looking down on the 'Needle.'


The Weather was nice 3 out of the 5 days...and we even saw the sun!




















The seminar was in downtown Seattle, so as Doug was learning...I was scouting out the area! (Shopping!!) Ok, looking!!!! Friday, we walked around Pikes Place Market and I meet this shinny pig too. I asked him if he was interested in living in Waynesfield, Oh...but he said he was a "city" hog and would like to stay.






Well, that's all for now. I am going to keep this site up so we can all stay in touch! Doug is done with his tests on Tuesday and I on Thursday...then we leave the Quad Cities for good on Oct. 18!

Love you all!
