Seattle, 2016

For our summer trip, we decided to surprise Da Boys. Their buddies, Gian and Paolo moved to Seattle, Wash in the spring. There were times, that Casey would really miss his friend Paolo. In fact, the day after we booked the tickets to Seattle, Casey had a school assignment in which he wrote what he wanted to do during summer break. He wrote, "goto Seattle to visit Paolo, goto pool, beach and play video games" Just so you know, if you rank up there with video games, you are an important part of his life!! We kept the destination secret, only telling Da Boys that we were going on an adventure. It wasn't until we were in the boarding area at the airport and the airlines announced the flight departure information did Casey learn we were going to Seattle.

When we arrived in Seattle, we were greeted with one typical wet, dreary day... followed up absolutely gorgeous, sunny days! Our hosts showed us around the area; we hit the tourist highlights, such as the Space Needle, Pike Place Market, Alki Beach and Snoqualmie Falls. And of course, Da Boys had plenty of time to catch up with their buddies, Gian and Paolo.
