Seafair 2009 – part 1

Seafair is Seattle at it’s best (as long as there are no shootings…..), but anyway it is so fun to come together and share the cultures and all that Seattle has to offer. Seafair runs for nearly a month and consists of numerous activities. This year, our family took in the Greenwood community parade, the big downtown Torchlight Parade, and then the Blue Angels air show over Lake Washington.
