For thanksgiving we took a few days off to be with family. We had family fly to Seattle from the midwest and California to gather for the holiday and to just spend quality time together. We planned several days to show this great area, including Pike’s Place, hiking, Owen beach, some of our favorite eateries, and holiday festivities at the Seattle Center – watching ice sculpting, listening to a holiday chorus, and ice skating!

Of course Erik is extremely athletic and I have no hand-eye coordination whatsoever. Did I mention I also lock my knees when it comes to any sort of inlining? Erik, the sweet husband he is, held my hand and basically dragged me around the rink so that I wouldn’t have to just walk along the edge gripping the wall. I have to admit that with his help I was able to skate on my own a bit towards the end. I asked my mom to hold my purse and told her she could play with our camera so she took these of us! I have to admit here that I never knew Erik could jump, turn, or speed skate until now.
