- Saturday October 13- Arrived in Seattle around 11am- my sister picked me up and we went to Ikea so she could get some furniture. Ikea's are awesome. Went back to DuPont and spent the rest of the evening with her family. My nephew is the most adorable kid ever.
- Sunday October 14- Got up early to drive to Puyallup and run a 5K- it was my sister's first 5K ever so it was neat that I got to be there for it. The race was called the "Haunted Hustle 5K & 10K" and people showed up in all sorts of neat costumes. My sister, nephew, and I dressed up as candy corn; we managed to finish together in 34:29.
- Monday October 15-Friday October 19- We spent a lot of time chasing my nephew around the block. The area my sister lives in is FULL of walking/running trails that go on for miles; I'm very jealous. We did some outlet shopping (I super-love Under Armour now), I went to my first Cabela's store (could totally live out of that store), we did some 30 minute runs around her apartment and a 4 mile hike at Nisqually Nature Reserve, I met some of her friends, and we watched several good movies (Memento, Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, Rango, Spiderman, Dark Shadows, Madagascar 3). Oh, and between my sister and I we accomplished a lot of good cooking.
- Saturday October 16- The 4 of us took another trip to Cabela's and then I spent the rest of the day doing laundry and getting ready for my flight (which was completely uneventful thank goodness).
