The past two or three years have been quite meh for me. 2011 was the worst. Ever. 2012 made up for that and then some! We traveled so much. Camped more than we ever have. Cooked more, and different, meals at home, and just had a great year together in general. Yesterday we drove north to Bellingham, WA for a final day of photo taking and food in 2012. Ok, so we mostly drove an hour north to get a tofu sandwich at the best co-op I’ve ever been to, but we still had fun along the way!
Happy New Year to you! How did you celebrate the new year?
last night i spent the last few hours of 2009 with some of my favorite people, ate some amazing homemade “turkey,” that jaime made for us, and eric and i rang in the new year at gasworks park overlooking seattle and watching fireworks from the space needle!
i posted the photos from last night below, but here’s a video that someone took at the space needle last night. this is apparently what we would have seen if the city hadn’t been covered in fog! there’s some music to go along with the fireworks display too! i’m surprised at the amount of explosives they’re allowed to set off from the needle too. some, i guess lucky, people are in the needle while the fireworks are going off!
oh!! and arkaedi turned two years old today! happy birthday arkaedi! we’re going over to the barkers this afternoon for a birthday celebration. i’m sure there will be more photos!
eric and i ventured down to gas works park last night to watch the fireworks. we were there with half of the city. it was packed! gas works park is pretty much the best place to view the fireworks. they set them off from a barge in the middle of lake union. pretty fun!
i’m happy we went to the lake last night. we debated it, and didn’t really like the idea of being around half of the city, but we sucked it up and fought our way through the crowds to find a spot for firework viewing.
i think i’d like to see the display again next year!!
here are the fireworks from last night. someone uploaded the video in three parts. thanks!
