Well, we made it to Seattle in one piece, but it's been a very long day. A. and I got up at 4:30 this morning to make our 8:10 flight out of Green. It took us about 5 hours to fly to Phoenix, where we changed planes and flew another 3 hours to Seattle. As usual, everything was right on time with Southwest, but it was still a lot of time on the airplane. We picked up our luggage and rental car and headed over to the hotel.

The hotel, a Marriott Residence Inn, is very nice. We got a suite so that the kids could sleep in a separate room. The only problem we're having is that we're not doing very well navigating Seattle so far. We tried to go to this restaurant A. read about on the Web and got directions off Mapquest. The directions didn't work out, and while we were trying to correct ourselves, I took a left turn on a "No Left Turn from 4-6PM" at 5:54. Naturally, there was a cop waiting right there. I played dumb out-of-towner so he let me off with a warning. He also told us we would have to pass through a bad neighborhood to get to the restaurant, so we gave up and went to an Outback near the hotel.

Tomorrow we're going to the zoo, and hopefully we'll get our bearings around town a little more. We have free high-speed Internet in the room (not wireless, though!), so I should be able to post a couple more times this week. However, my body is saying it's after midnight (although the clock says it's just after 9) so I think it's time for bed!
