Day 9 - 10: Seattle WA

~ Just the Facts ~
Camping:  Seattle-Tacoma KOA, Kent, WA
Restaurants:  BBQ Pete's, Fogon's

Leaving Portland, we headed to Tacoma to tour University of Puget Sound.  Another great school that we enjoyed immensely.  The campus was beautiful and we could easily imagine the kids being happy there.

After a nasty drive through Seattle's rush hour, we settled in at the KOA in Kent, Washington.  We were hot and tired but still had enough energy to celebrate Greg's birthday by going to a nearby BBQ place with some rather delish bbq and Shiner Bock beer!  

We had our first tour of a large urban school at University of Washington.  U-Dub is impressive and beautiful but both kids decided that urban and large was not for them.  

Ruth decided this statue looked like the personification of the Migraine.  :) 

If you look closely, this one has birds nest materials behind it.  

We LOVED the "Harry Potter" library.  You could almost hear the music! 

After the tour, we found a great Mexican restaurant and then went down to Pike's Place Market.  It was hot and humid and crowded but so much fun.  

Oh, and the Mountain was out.  Mt Rainer, as seen from U-Dub's campus
