Fourth of July

So this year we tried something a little bit different for the Fourth of July. There were no fireworks...

We went to this adorable little Germantown up in the mountains called Leavenworth. We had been there several times during the winter, but this was our first trip there in the summer. The drive was amazing and followed this beautiful gorge alongside a river...until we hit the mountains. The weather was cooler, the food was good...and we had a nice time. We went to "kinderfest" (a kids festival) that morning, we took a carraige ride, walked around the shops, at at a nice crepery for dinner, and went to "The Sound of Music" that night at a little outdoor ampitheater. My parents came up as well to keep Addie since she wasn't old enough to get in since they had already seen the show.

My parents and the girls...
Happy Grandpa!

Larry, Aana, and I at the play!
Now we all have the songs stuck in our head and we keep finding ourselves singing or humming all the songs...
The next morning we had a huge breakfast and went on a little 18 hole putting course before returning home. It was a nice little get away and we enjoyed our time together. Sometimes you just need a change of scenery...and a break from the normal.
