Anniversary Recap

We left our house at about 4:30 and finally had all of our kids dropped off where they were supposed to be. Then we stopped at Target to get Sebastian some much needed new clothes and an inverter to power his laptop so he could design a blueprint while I drove.
We hit traffic and had to sit for a long time. It took us an hour to drive 10 miles. Grrr. After that though it was smooth sailing the rest of the way. We finally made it to eastern Washington at about 8:45 pm. We checked into our B&B and then we went out to dinner at the only good restaurant that we know in Leavenworth, Visconti's. They have paper on the tables, even though the food is 4 star, and they supply crayons. We had a lot of fun with that. Unfortunately I can't show you any of those pictures... But I'm sure the rest of the patrons were wondering what could possibly be so funny in the corner.

On Saturday we got up late and had breakfast at 10:00 and then headed out for our rafting trip. Unfortunately for you I was too cheap to buy the pictures they took. You'll just have to go look at the website and pretend one of those people is me. How would you know anyway, right?

We pulled out of the river at dinner time at their private beach and the fixed us a BBQ dinner. It was very yummy. We caught the first busload to our car, and headed back to the B&B. We started to watch My Fair Lady, but I had to go to bed about 1/2 way through. I was already asleep when Sebastian came to bed- he wasn't able to finish it either.

Sunday we had breakfast at 10 again and then we packed up and checked out. We strolled around Leavenworth and then we headed home. By the time we made it back home from retrieving all of our children it was 8:45. Jonah had fallen asleep in the car, so I carried him inside and stayed with him while Sebastian took the other kids to see Indiana Jones.

All in all we had a fun time. It was very relaxing and fun to enjoy each other's company without the added stress of being Mom and Dad.

The Bed and Breakfast was very nice and I would recommend it. It is pricey, but well worth the money for a special occasion.

Lovely...so glad you could get away.

I can't make it through an entire movie very often anymore. Last night I couldn't even make it through an entire episode of Gilmore Girls!
