A trip to Seattle

We took a little  family weekend trip up to Seattle this past weekend. It has been a long time since I had been out of Portland, or done anything at all really so it was a nice change of pace.
Our trips are usually out and away from any city because I am not much of a city person, my soul craves the quiet and peace of nature and Oregon has so many beautiful places to chose from. Not to mention spending time in any city is expensive, especially with a family of five.I thought Portland was big but compared to Seattle it feels very small. 
That being said we had a great time.
One benefit of Ben traveling constantly with work is that he earns rewards points towards free hotel rooms and it doesn't take long at all before he racks up enough points for a free room. So we stayed for free all weekend.The hotel we stayed at was just three blocks from the Space Needle and we had a great view of it from our room. The kids had fun watching the elevator go up and down while lying in bed. We found out that the Pacific Science Center accepted Portland OMSI membership so we also all got into the Science Center for free! What a thrifty trip it was!
That's how we roll.
We also got to spend some time with Ben's sister which was fun.
