Seattle, Microsoft edition
Jon and Julie were awesome hosts and planned all sorts of fun things for us to do while we visited Seattle. One day we went over to the Microsoft main campus and toured a few of the buildings. We had lunch in the cafeteria. Now when I say cafeteria, think your mall food court times four. It was pretty cool. Then we did the Microsoft store, and the X Box building as well. Jon works at a different campus but he did take us to his actual office another day. Colin touching a touch-screen. Jon touching a Colin...???Microsoft had bunches of perks. One Colin and I enjoyed in particular, free soda everywhere! Colin and I posing in the Microsoft museum. They had a bunch of really old electronics and showed the progression of technology in the past few decades, pretty neat stuff! Colin bought two 12 month subscriptions to XBox live while visiting the Microsoft store, among other things. Julie and Violet.
