OK, so this post is kind of late. Well, actually like a week late but better late than never right? We've been trying to keep up with what's going on around Seattle now that we live here. So we went to part of the Seafair activities. It all starts with pirates. Yeah Pirates! They dress up and everything. They come up and land at Alki Beach and that starts the festivities. There are tons of activities including parades.

One of the parades was on the street below us, so we decided to go. We got a good spot and waited and to my surprise it was fun. This parade didn't have the big floats and all that like the bigger one downtown did but it was fun. I still can't believe how many drill teams there are in Seattle. I do suppose it would be a fun after school or summer activity though. The coolest part by far was the end when the pirates came down with there ship and let off a loud bomb of smoke. :)

It's been a fun experience and this weekend the boat races will be coming our way. Along with the Blue Angels airshow. We plan on watching it on TV since most of it is on Sunday and it is too hot to hang out in the sun.
