Day After Thanksgiving

We headed downtown Seattle the day after Thanksgiving for our annual shopping/playing day. We started the day with Banh Mi from the Seattle Deli – it was YUMMY. Then headed to Westlake to ride the carousel. We decided that this was our 11th Christmas heading down for the tree lighting. We have been going since Samantha was 3. Then walked around, shopped, watched the tree lighting, had dinner at the Spaghetti Factory (Finley’s choice), saw the amazing gingerbread houses at the Sheraton and then spent the night downtown. It was a great day. Too bad the night was so bad – both boys up all night long, an uncomfortable bed and a noisy bus area out or window. Oh well. We had a good time as a family.

There was a people’s choice award at the end of the display and I was torn between A Christmas Story and Nightmare before Christmas. They both were absolutely amazing. If you get a chance to check them out take it – it was worth it.
