After going to lunch on Lake Union, we ventured out to the Locks with my parents (today is their 41st wedding anniversary! Thanks for spending the day with us mom & dad!). In all the years I lived in Seattle, I’ve never been to the Ballard Locks. I’ve driven over the bridge many times near them and seen them from a distance, but I’ve never been up this close. It’s a little treasure that Tyler couldn’t get enough of. While Tyler and my dad ran ahead, we followed behind a bit slower… Brielle was so funny, social, sassy, silly, and wanting nothing to do with my camera. I did however sneak a few of her today. Below, the true sassy side of Brielle…I can’t help but laugh (at least right now, when she’s a teenager I will probably be pulling my hair out – ha!) And of course I had to take a picture of this colorful tugboat going through the locks!
