Last weekend Bob and I decided to go on a mini vacation. Leavenworth, WA, a small fake German town, was about a three and a half hour drive away. Since neither of us have been, and my parents said they would watch Tucker we decided to go. It was tons of fun. We stayed in this German style Bed and Breakfast called the Haus Rorhbach Pension. You can see our balcony is the very top one in the picture.

It was about a mile and a half away from the town so it was very peaceful and quit. We had an amazing view from our balcony, and the bed and breakfast even had a pool. It felt so good to go swimming after we spent our mornings walking around town. It was in the upper ninety's both Friday and Saturday.

Bob and I brought our scooter to ride around town. It was really fun, I barely ever get to ride it, and the wind felt great in the heat.

On Friday we watched the 6th Harry Potter Movie, which I enjoyed, even though they left out a lot from the book.
We had a fun time eating the German food.

This restaurant even had live singing and dancing.

I had to get something from the Chocolate Factory.

We got to tour the candy store called Applets and Cotlets. I actually didn't like the candy at all, but it was neat to see how they make it.

One place even had a menu item called the "Big Bob Bratwurst"

We also went to the fish hatchery where we learned about salmon, tons of tiny shops, and a farm where they had fresh fruit and a petting zoo.

My favorite part of the trip was just getting to spend time with Bob. We haven't left Tucker ever before so we missed him a lot, but it was so nice to take a break. Especially because we have another baby coming in just over two months. We had such a great time, we decided to try and take a trip every year that is just the two of us.

That's so nice that you guys could do that. I wish we would have done that more before we had another baby and I started nursing again.

I am glad you guys had a good time. We did the candy factory too. I am with you on the candy, but it was fun. See you soon.
