Ever since the hike Jeff planned to Tiger Mountain State Park last summer (which inspired our Glacier road trip the very next weekend), he’s been saying that it’s my turn to plan one. We’ve been a bit busy around here so it’s taken me a while, but we were finally able to get out of town and head north to Deception Pass State Park near Anacortes, WA.

Bridge over Deception Pass. There are no toll cameras per AMC’s The Killing story plot though.
Cloudy day, but we had a few peaks of sun and it didn’t rain.
The grayness here is subtly beautiful.
We had some great views over the Sound and even got to see a few sea otters!

A month ago a bunch of residents went to what the rest of the UW dental school called something more formal like “Winter Gala”, but colloquially to us was called “dental prom”. I was super excited because it was going to be held at the Seattle Aquarium (octopi! otters!). Clearly based on the photos you can surmise there was an open bar and lots of fun.
We started off the night with dinner at Anthony’s on Pier 66 (the Aquarium is on Pier 59, so just a quick walk down).
Not only did we enjoy delicious seafood with great views of Elliot Bay at night, but were treated to the wonderful news that our dear friends Bri and Ian are engaged!!! So happy for them 😀
It was so much fun to have the aquarium to ourselves and we spent a good majority of the night waving at the otters and playing in the tide pools.

So excited about Bri’s news!!

Jeff and I spent the days leading up to prom singing excerpts from this song and getting excited – the night did not disappoint! We even won a $50 gift card to our favorite TnT Taqueria in the silent auction. Can’t wait for next year 🙂
