We just got back from a wonderful weekend in Leavenworth! A friend of mine couldn't use their timeshare condo so we snatched it up. Our condo was absolutely beautiful--probably the nicest place we've ever stayed!! Our room overlooked the Wenatchee River and Blackbird Island. One of the highlights of the weekend for boys was the HUGE jet tub--I've never seen them so willing to take baths. :-)After a day of sledding and shopping, we joined the hundreds of others in the drizzling rain to watch the Lighting Ceremony. We didn't have a very good vantage point but we were close to a restaurant so we were able to get a table as soon as the lighting was over!! It was a wonderful weekend full of family fun!
The other highlight of the weekend was sledding--the boys did some sledding on the busy hill in town but found it even more fun to sled on the big hill right behind the lodge. It was steeper and less crowded. As an added bonus, I was able to watch from the comfort of our condo!
