Leavenworth Weekend

So I wasn't entirely truthful when I said last weekend was the last time Boyfriend and I would get away before the babies are born. I knew we were going to Leavenworth the very next weekend but it was with his whole family so our Seattle weekend was the last time the two of our would get away. And actually, it's the first time we went anywhere, just the two of us, just for fun.

Anyway, we ended up in a little condo in Leavenworth on Friday while his two sisters and their husbands, his two nieces, his nephew and his mom all stayed in a house just a short drive away. It was kind of nerve-wracking getting up there because of the snow and all the idiots who think they can still drive 70+ in the snow, but we safely made it to our cute little condo.
It was really nice of his sister to give us the condo when one of the other couples easily could have stayed in it instead.

The people who own the condo thought of all kinds of cute added touches like this welcome bear. They provided plenty of extra blankets and pillows for the fouton, teas, cocoa, apple cider, etc. the family that stayed in the house seemed much more impressed with the extras our condo provided.

Another little friend found right by the TV

They had a bear theme going throughout the condo, even the pulls on the lights & fans were little bears.
I think the things were the most impressed with was that they provided free wi-fi! I'm not saying I enjoyed the condo more than B's surprise stay at the Edgewater, but they didn't try and get more money out of us for every little thing which was nice....our bed was way too soft though so Saturday night I stayed on the fouton while B tried to brave the bed.

Both Saturday and Sunday we pretty much spent exploring the little shops since we were right in the heart of downtown Leavenworth. I didn't take a ton of pictures, but one shop I enjoyed was the Gingerbread Factory - it smelled like heaven!

The gingerbread man is a little "puffy" in the middle. We thought they were pretty cute!

I needed a hat. since I don't spend a ton of time in the cold in Seattle, I don't own any hats! We had fun trying on all the big, fluffy, furry ones but they were way too big! They all covered my eyes. I wasn't planning on getting that type anyway, but in the end I didn't purchase a different style either.
I took more pics but they were all of the fam's kids and I don't feel right putting someone else's kids on here. How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun?
