A weekend in Leavenworth

Our little boy is changing by the hour: new expressions, movements, and sounds. He is very observant of the world around him. And he has become quite the conversationalist — he coos back and forth with us… and we melt.

Earlier this month, we had the opportunity to spend a weekend at our friends’ cabin near Leavenworth. It was so generous of them to offer it, and we made the most of our time away: morning strolls, wine tasting, real estate hunting (why not?), German food, shopping, and lots of snuggle time with our little guy. 

Getting away for a weekend always seems to restore me. I took a bunch of photos – here are some highlights.

Happy to be here! (Google maps took us on a slight detour… but W napped for almost the entire three hour drive. What a kid!)


Out to dinner the first night (and we did kind of feel like we were back in Germany…)


Nice to wake up in this quiet, quiet space

Nice to wake up in this quiet space — no curtains needed

Sean spotted this rattlesnake skin on one of our morning strolls !

I am so in love.

    Does Sean remember when we went to Leavenworth when Gene and I were on our Cruise to Alaska and then later Mt. Rainier and Leavenworth? Roger has a cousin in Leavenworth. William is growing up in the most gorgeous countryside.
