Happy Birthday To ME!!!!
We had a no school day on Tuesday - or should I say a field trip. Yes that sounds better. Anyway, we went to a little town a couple of hours from us called Leavenworth. It is a neat tourist trap of a town. The town faced severe economic difficulties and then in the 1960s they came up with this brainstorm idea to turn the town into a bavarian village. It is a very cute village in the foothills of the cascade mountains with lots of shops and restaurants. They have festivals at different times during the year and bring in bavarian dancers and singers. On weekends throughout the summer, they have art in the park. It is a fun place to visit or stay for a couple of days. We had a great drive and got to see the fall colors, stopped at the fudge shop and had a great lunch out at a place called Gustavs. It was a very enjoyable way to spend my birthday.
