They've been to the top of the Space Needle and got some coffee.  My family can now go home and say they officially did the Seattle thing.

Grandma bought a pretty green necklace in the gift shop.  Not sure how they did it, but they made the emerald out of something that blew out of Mt. St. Helens during the eruption.
