SLEEPLESS IN the SEATTLE airport!

Well, here’s the good, the bad and the ugly of our trip to Seattle/Vancouver…

The Good… there was a lot of good: it was great to see Jon & Aimee Lundberg and hang out with them, go on the Seattle Underground Tour, Pike’s Place Market, watching my friend Nate marry his bride, Aminah, seeing Vancouver, and just having fun together!! Oh, and I guess seeing Jimi Hendrix's memorial was a highlight for Erik. :)

The Bad…traffic, waiting for an hour in a line to get back into the US (at least we didn’t wait 2 hours!) and paying $180 to go Whale Watching. See, Jon & Aimee went on Friday and saw over 40 whales. So, we thought we’d go on Sunday…we’ll all we got out of it was a sunburn and a view of a dead seal!! Pretty disappointing!!

The Ugly…well, that was getting to the airport on time for our flight that was canceled!! So, we spent 7+ hours waiting in the airport for the red-eye flight that left at 12:30am and got back to Mpls at 5:30am. And all we got for our trouble was $10 meal passes for the airport! What a complete nightmare!?!? But overall, the good does out-weigh the bad. We had a good time!

Ha. that was a great summary of your trip. Too bad you didn't get a free flight out of the red eye flight.

bummer guys... I'm glad you got to hang out with the Lundbergs... I miss that kid! 7 hours in an airport stinks!

I just noticed you started a blog. Now I have yet another way to procrastinate!
