Seattle Celebrates!

If you are tired of my football posts, feel free to stop reading now.  We have been in Arizona the last 5 days and I will have some posts from there, including The Attic needlework shop very soon.  However, we had an amazing day today in Seattle.  It was a parade for the team. I would more accurately call it an entire city celebration of the Super Bowl win.  Just a few stats: over 700,000 people were in the city today.  That number represents more people than live within the city limits of Seattle.  One third of the school children did not go to school (about 17,000), and over 500 teachers called in sick! I hope you enjoy a few pictures of the great event!

 The Quarterback, Russell Wilson

 Typical crowd

The famous running back Marshawn Lynch

 As I said 700,000 people!

 The team all rode in these open military vehicles according to their positions.

Wilson with the trophy. There was a giant sold -out rally in the stadium. The stadium was full. I don't know if that was part of the 700,000.

 Last night on the ferry coming home from the airport we saw this tall building honoring the 12th man.

Our water-front Ferris Wheel decked out in Seahawk colors!  I think all of the region thanks the team for the fun football season! Thanks to all of you for joining me!
