About Ivar Haglund
Ivar Johan Haglund was born to Swedish and Norwegian parents, Johan Ivar and Daisy Maud, in West Seattle in 1905. Performing came naturally to Ivar, and he was soon entertaining family friends by playing guitar and singing. In adulthood, Haglund took his knack for entertaining and folk songs to the Seattle waterfront and opened Seattle’s first aquarium in 1938. His first fish ‘n chips stand was an extension of his aquarium, giving hungry visitors a place to dine. Since then, he created a legacy of quality seafood restaurants throughout the Northwest, with chowders and sauces sold as far away as Mexico and Japan. Always devising new attention-getting capers, Ivar staged a number of famous pranks and masterminded numerous stunts in his time including octopus wrestling on the Seattle waterfront and strolling to Frederick and Nelson’s department store with Patsy the seal from the aquarium. Haglund was a regular on KJR and KIRO radio stations, as well as the JP Patches children’s television program. Ivar passed away in 1985, just shy of his 80th birthday, but his Northwest dining legacy lives on in his beloved recipes and seafood restaurants.
Ivar’s Restaurants opened on Seattle’s waterfront in 1938. Today, there are 21 Ivar’s fast casual Seafood Bars and three full-service restaurants: Ivar’s Acres of Clams, Ivar’s Salmon House and Ivar’s Mukilteo Landing. Ivar’s Seafood, Soup and Sauce Company markets and sells its award-winning soups, chowders and sauces nationally and internationally. The company also operates regional stadium concessions including Safeco Field, CenturyLink Field, Husky Stadium and Cheney Stadium.

It’s been so much fun watching her lately, she’s into everything and learning something new all the time. Eight months already – wow! In a way it doesn’t feel like it’s been eight months since I gave birth but in a way it feels so long ago especially when I see a newborn. She’s our happy easy going baby, but when she cries and Mason’s around all he has to do is look at her and she stops and reaches for him, it’s so cute! In another month or two I’ll be starting to plan someone’s birthday and I can’t wait to share it with ya’ll.
