Last I left off with our fabulous Seattle vacation we had finished up our lunch at the pub. Now it was time to venture off towards the Space Needle, after paying a whopping $24 to park for 4 hours. Ouch.
A Cupcake Shop
Before leaving Crystal's place that morning I had mapped out various cupcake shops in Seattle, hoping to find one along the way. I have never been to a legit cupcake shop, we don't have such things in little 'ol Reno. I wanted to take Celeste to a bakery for a treat her first day of kindergarten a couple years age, and I had a heck of a time finding that! So as we were driving to the Space Needle, Crystal spotted The Yellow Leaf cupcake shop. Screech, we're there!
Cupcakes are made fresh daily, and there's always some pretty unique ones to choose from too. Celeste and I both went with the orange cream. Crystal had a red velvet whoopie pie, and her son Cavan had chocolate, Chloe had Raspberry Lemonade. We thought they were so delicious we took some to go too. I chose salted caramel and Celeste went for chocolate. Crystal took home coconut, pancakes and bacon, espresso and margarita (with tequila).
Bellies full, we headed back to the car and continued to our destination. Spent another $9 to park. My wallet is crying now. I hate spending money with nothing to show. We walk over to the Space Needle and start snapping pictures from the park below. Celeste begs to go up.
"I thought you were afraid of heights" I say.
"Not anymore, since I went on an airplane," she says.
Oh. Okay. So after to trying to convince Crystal to go up too, Celeste and I headed up just the two of us. It was pretty cool, and I recommend everyone does it at least once. How often do you get such an amazing view of such a beautiful city?
