Visiting Sonshine...

Now, the only reason I even got to go to Seattle was because DH was invited to speak at a conference at Microsoft's headquarters, but we flew in a few days before the conference so that we could hang with Sonshine.

On Saturday, he showed us around the base a bit--his dorm room, his ship (from outside the fence only), and the NEX (Navy Exchange, like a department store) and commissary (grocery store)--before we headed back to the hotel and just hung out and enjoyed each other's company. Sonshine wanted his Xbox One from home, so the boys were able to spend quality father/son time together. :) I just soaked up Sonshine's presence.

On Sunday, we took the ferry (to say we did it) into Seattle and visited the EMP Museum.

The museum was a hit with one and all.

 Sonshine, next to wall painted like a Mario of his first video game loves.

 Costumes from Star Wars, obviously, one of the exhibits.

The Chuck Jones animation exhibit...

And while we didn't go up in the Space Needle, we saw it, as it was right behind the museum!

After the museum, we had our perfect meal as mentioned in Wednesday's post.

Have a great weekend!
