A Whirlwind Washington Adventure

We were lucky to get a short trip in up to visit with my Husband's Sister up in Seattle for a day and then we headed east to visit a charming mountain town where we stayed in a cozy A-frame cabin for the night. It was a very hot trip in the mountains, like crazy hot. Made me wish we stayed a little bit longer to soak up the Puget Sound.
My husband used to travel constantly with work and one such work trip led him to the small mountain town of Leavenworth, Washington. The entire town is themed like a Bavarian village. He really enjoyed it there and wanted to share it with us someday. Since we were going up to Seattle anyway we decided this would be a good time to check it out, especially since we are moving away from the Pacific Northwest in a few short weeks and this might be our last chance for a while.

My little merman.

                                                   Perfect day on the Puget Sound.

 This is one of the prettiest drives I have been on and for once I was not driving!

 Can you spot the little blue A-frame hiding in the trees? I think I have found my dream home.

 It was in the 90s when we got to the cabin so we decided to visit the creek on the lower part of the property. The water was crystal clear and ice cold a perfect little oasis. We were even visited by three goats who came running down the hill on the opposite side of the creek. They were very happy to play in the water too.
The Three Billy Goats Gruff.

 So much detail in this cute little town. I loved all the murals and detailed woodwork on all the shops.

                   Solomon melting in his jeans. I figured it would be cool in the mountains so I packed pants and long sleeve shirts. I couldn't have been more wrong.

 There was a statue of three goats outside this building, the kids thought that was great after our random meeting with the goats at the creek.

Before our very hot, and very long drive back to Portland we stopped and visited some cute farm friends.....well most of them were cute......
