Seattle 2016: Our Trip to the Emerald City

Fairmont Olympic Seattle
Around Seattle


My wife had one of her annual trips in which she can bring a guest.  Thus our baby and I were lucky to accompany my wife to Seattle.  Baby and I have never been to Seattle so we were all excited. This would be our little guy’s 6th state visited already!

We flew MKE to SEATAC on a Alaska Air Embraer 175 on the outbound.  We earned 1694 miles for that flight.

We also got to witness some pretty scenery on the way out to the Pacific Northwest. Our baby was full of energy on the flight out but well behaved.

We arrived in Seattle and were chauffeur driven to our hotel for the next few nights-The Fairmont Olympic Seattle. We had an overall nice stay at the property.  Very nicely located to explore the city.

We had time to explore the city as a family in between and after my wife’s work obligations. There were also scheduled excursions which we could have signed up for (like visiting Boeing headquarters and some wine tastings, etc) but we had our baby so decided to pass on those events.

After a few days in Seattle we headed back to Milwaukee on Southwest Airlines where we earned 3751 Rapid Rewards points.
