Over the 49th parallel

So as previously mentioned, I've been busy, but it was a good busy, spending time with famille. Over the weekend, me and some famille visited some other famille over in Washington because one member of the famille (from Kangarooland) hadn't seen the other famille in ages.

Some stuff done in pictures:

We got to stop at a Krispy Kreme.

And visited Pike Place Market (Pah-blek Mah-ket, hehehe)
Read the sign to the left.

I saw a rainbow by the Space Needle.
Didn't go up it though.

We saw the Pacific North West's "Mt. Fuji."
No, it's Mount Rainier. Pretty. Grouse looks they say in the olden days.... a dunghill in comparison with this mountain.

And possibly one of the most beautiful parts of the trip - visiting the Walmart Supercenter in Marysville. Wow, I get goosebumps thinking about it, a SUPERCENTER! It was huge! Pringles for $1! A dozen eggs for 78¢! A "wind-resistant" superstrong umbrella that folds into a reasonable small size and feels like a small club for $9.97 (can't wait to try it out)!!!

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain;
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood,
From sea to shining sea.
