Seattle, WA

Two of the activities Preston misses the most since moving from New England to Texas are playing in the snow and going hiking. Preston got to do both in his trip to Seattle!
Seattle’s winter is mild and the city doesn’t usually get a lot of snow but a snowstorm hit the Northwest the day after Preston arrived. Preston was out playing in the snow and so were all the kids on the block!

Preston revisited Marymoor Park, the locals call it “Doggy Disneyland”.

When the snow melted three days later, Preston went hiking in Cougar Mountains.

How did Preston warm up after getting out of the icy water?

Preston also visited the famous Pike Place Market in downtown Seattle.

When Preston wasn’t going out, he was obsessed with his new found friend at Grandma and Grandpa’s house.

    Preston, hope you did not catch cold falling into icy water. I love snow too! Wish we could play together.

    You are so smart…Finding your own twin 🙂

    Glad you had a nice Thanksgiving with grandparents and mommy and daddy.


  5. Wow Preston! That was some serious snow! I’m sure you felt that same cold front when you got back to Houston!

    I cannot believe you fell into the icy water! You must have given your Mommy a heart attack! I hope you didn’t get any frost bites!

    Looks like you had a fabulous time over Thanksgiving! Your new friend looks kinda like you! hehehe!


  6. Oh my goodness, Preston – how scary that you fell into the icy water!! If that had been me, your Daddy wouldn’t have been able to lift me out – hee! hee! 😀

    Looks like you’re having a wonderful time in Seattle! I know just how you feel – since moving to Australia, I’ve really missed being able to go hiking too! 🙁

    I really enjoyed your last post about your journey – you’re quite the seasoned traveller, aren’t you? 😛
    You’re so lucky that you have somewhere you can fly to easily to do those fun things. Flying for me is a MAJOR hassle since my crate is practically the size of a horse box! 😉

    Hi Preston! What a great trip you had to Seattle! That must have been so scary when you fell through the ice!! Good thing you had a harness on that Daddy could grab to save you!

    your new found friend at Grandma’s house is hysterical!!

    Hugs and Licks, Bruschi

  8. Hi, Preston:

    Glad you had a great Thanksgiving trip and that you made it back home without any frostbite. We did have some snow!

    P.S. I have a friend in the skylights…she visits every night and I say hello to her. She rarely says “hi” back. So funny.

    Dear, Preston:

    Glad you had a great Thanksgiving and didn’t get any frost bite. We sure did have some snow! Happy to hear you made it back home just fine.

    P.S. I have a friend in the skylight. She visits every night. I bark to say “hi” but she isn’t very talkative. So funny…

  10. What an awesome trip! Snow-what a bonus 🙂 We are waiting for the snow here (well at least Mommy is). That water must’ve been cold! Was your new friend nice ;)?!?!
