18: Nov. 21, 2010 Whew! What a ride. Me and my little brother Chuck just arrived in sunny Seattle today. The plane ride was tiring. We just got done unpacking at the Alexis A Kimpton Hotel. This is going to be a mindblowing vacation! I think we'll probably end up spending the rest of the day checking out this amazing hotel. It's huge! Tomorrow we plan on going to Seattle's Science Fiction Museum. I'm looking forward to that. It'll be interesting to see all their exhibits. | Nov. 23, 2010 Wow I just had an amazing lunch at the Maximilien French Cafe. I absolutely love seafood! Not only that, but I also ran into my old teacher Ms. Stanley! What a coincidence. I talked to her a little and I guess she's here on a fun vacation too. She wasn't too thrilled with what she had ordered at the café, so I recommended her some of the Oyster Rockefeller I was eating. She loved it! I knew she would. What are the odds. Maybe we'll see her around some of Seattle's tourist attractions too.
19: Nov. 24, 2010 Today was a relaxing day. It was chilly out, so I spent the day at the hotel. I had my clothes dry cleaned. While I was waiting on that, I visited their fitness center. There's also a nice family room in the hotel too, perhaps next time we'll take a family vacation here and all my siblings can experience what I am. Tonight I'm going to check out The Central, and have dinner there. | Nov. 27, 2010 Darn, I can't believe we're already leaving tomorrow. I've been having so much fun here. I might think about moving up here when I graduate school. It's a beautiful city. Yesterday we visited the Bill Gates House. It was breathtaking. I wish I lived in a house that nice! It was interesting to see all the things we did on this trip, at least I know what I'm missing out on now. Haha just kidding, I sort of miss home. I could use a good night's rest in my comfy old bed at home. And all this 'going out to eat' stuff is getting pretty costly!
20: Nov. 28, 2010 I'm home! I missed my family so much. I'm so glad to be home, although it was a fun trip. It was quite an experience. I'm definitely going back to visit someday. I had tons of exciting stories to tell my family when I met them at the airport. But I fell asleep on the long car ride back to Elk Mound and knocked out as soon as I got home. I was beat!
21: Goodbye Seattle!
