Happy Mother's Day!

I'd like to wish a Happy Mother's Day to all Mother's in Blogland. We have had a good day so far and are about ready for me to take Pat to dinner. We have a reservation for 17:00 at Taco Bell. Well, maybe it is somewhere else but I've been telling her it is T.B. all day. I suppose I could have just said Costco where two can eat for about $3 plus tax. But Mother's Day only comes once a year so I guess it is okay to spend more than that on two meals.

We are still waiting for Spring. Pat bought two tomato plants today and if the weather forecast holds for tomorrow, they will get planted. Everything up here is running late this year and I really wonder how well crops like apples will do, with this late start. I guess they'll be okay if we have a hotter than usual summer but so far that sure isn't looking like what is going to happen. Ugh.

Our Fourth Wedding Anniversary

The day after our wedding on 28 April 2007 we went to the small Bavarian themed town on the east side of Stevens Pass called Leavenworth. It has always been a favorite place for us to visit ever since. This year to celebrate our Fourth Anniversary we spent two nights in Chelan, WA and two in Leavenworth. These towns are both on the other side of the Cascade Mountains from where we live and a bit too cold (and snowy) for us in the winter and pretty hot in the summer but they usually have wonderful weather in the spring and fall. This year it was warmer and dryer than on our wet side of the mountains but was still cooler than it should be for this time of the year. But we had a good time.

The last morning there we went to breakfast with friends at Enzian Inn and the following photos were taken of us on the fourth floor deck by my friend I've known since Kindergarten, Dave.

Us in Leavenworth 1
Here are Pat and I with some of the town and a few of the hills in the background. Other friends who actually live in the Bavarian area of Germany have told me the look and especially the setting of Leavenworth are very much like in Bavaria.

Us in Leavenworth 2
Here is another. Leavenworth is a rather magical place for us and we always enjoy our visits there. Our favorite places to stay are the Enzian Inn and the Linderhof Inn, both of which are next door to each other. They are right on the main highway, US-2, and at the entrance to the downtown village. For RVers, there is the Icicle River Campground or the KOA Campground, both of which are close in to town. If you get the chance to visit there, be sure to go.
