While growing up in the Midwest, autumn was my favorite season. The leaves burst with color, the air is crisp, there’s a festival every weekend, and it meant that it was time to start having hot apple cider again. That being said, it’s now been eight years since I’ve lived in a state that has four seasons. My husband has never experienced it.
Needless to say, we were both excited when the temperatures began to drop and the leaves began to change here in the Northwest this month. To make things even better, my in-laws visited us right when the colors were changing in Seattle, so we all got to experience Washington’s beauty together.
We had a great time catching up with our family and enjoying sights all around the city last week.
We were able to visit the Space Needle, EMP Museum, Kerry Park and the Waterfront all in one day!
It was hard to see them go, but we are so happy that we were able to share this experience with them!
Now, we’ll just have to wait and see how our first Winter in Washington goes.
