Team Turner Adventure!

On Saturday we decided to start a new tradition which will include switching off weekends where we plan something fun to do on Saturday afternoons! Since this was the first weekend and it was my idea, I planned the day for us and kept calling it "Team Turner Adventure Part 1, Part 2..." and so on! Part 1 of this adventure was having Maury try Starbucks.  I was very excited for this because I want him to start liking it like I do. I started him out with something very simple, a Mocha Frap! He liked it which is a great start!

Part 2 of the adventure was going into Seattle to enjoy the amazing weather! It was a very sunny day and not too cold, so it was perfect.  We tried a restaurant called Steamers right on the water and both really enjoyed it. The waterfront and Pikes Place were crowded with people but everyone just wanted to enjoy the sun! We walked around the city and did some shopping and then headed back towards home.  When we got close some of Maury's friends called and invited us to go to the casino with them, and we happened to be driving past it at that exact time, so it worked out perfectly! It was fun to just relax and laugh and try to win some money! Both of the guys ended up winning about $100 and Team Turner won $250!! Woohoo!

Beautiful Seattle 

Until next time,
