Downtown Tacoma

We decided to explore Downtown Tacoma on foot after our morning excursion at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium.  Here are just some of the things that we saw during our walk:

This is the cutest bike ever!  I would be the most cheerful person biking around if I had pink flowers in my basket everyday.  The best part was that it was parked in front of Hello, Cupcake.  I went in there and wanted to buy every cupcake (I love baking cupcakes and watching Cupcake Wars).  Luckily, I have great self-restraint—most days.

The fall semester just began at University of Washington, Tacoma.  There were a lot of students walking around, and it made us miss our college days.

I am so glad we made a right onto Jefferson Avenue after walking through UW Tacoma's campus.  If not, we would have missed Old Spaghetti Factory.  Now we know our next dinner spot!  Mmm...Spaghetti with Mizithra cheese and brown butter is so good!

Loving the changing of colors.

We just made it inside the Union Station Courthouse before it closed.  The artwork in here was absolutely gorgeous.

Washington State History Museum, which is next to the Union Station Courthouse.

This is a ceiling made of different glass shapes.  I loved how it made me feel like I was walking underneath water. 

Crystal Towers at the Museum of Glass.  If we didn't have two little kids that like to run around and touch everything, we would have visited the museum.  Sadly, we didn't want to have an expensive accident.  Perhaps when they're older, we'll visit the museum!
