Lake Wenatchee & Leavenworth Christmas Tree Lighting

Look it only took me a few weeks to get this post up, unlike some other posts that are a year overdue....#newyearsresolutions.

Blake finished up his quarter on Dec. 14th so we hurried out of town for a little getaway before all the family started coming to town for Christmas!

We decided to check out the Leavenworth tree lighting and surrounding area. It has been a bucket list item to go to Leavenworth at Christmas for a long time so I took full advantage of Blake being out of school!

The day before the tree lighting we wandered outside of Leavenworth to Lake Wenatchee State Park and honestly, we wish we would have spent more time there. It was BEAUTIFUL! Freezing, but beautiful! Blake and I are definitely planning on going back this summer. 

It was so nice to be outdoors again. If you've followed along for a while Blake and I love outdoor adventures and we try to get outdoors as much as we can. But my 1st trimester rocked me and Blake's school was so busy we haven't been on many adventures at all. So both of us were in complete heaven! No school and no nausea!

But let's be honest about the tree lighting. Cool experience, glad we did it, but we probably won't ever do it again. And we were very glad we did it before we had kids. It was so cold, and there were so many people! And as cool as Leavenworth is, it isn't really a kid friendly town. You can only look at each of the shops so many times, and with little kids, I think they'd be bored till the tree lighting time. 

But let us talk about the food. The brats were the bomb at both places we went to! I seriously dream about going back just for the brats. And all the little German pastries, treats, etc. were everything this pregnant mama dreams about!

But this isn't me discouraging you from going to Leavenworth. Everyone should experience it once, and I've also heard it is beautiful (and warmer) in the spring/summer! And we plan on taking our little guy back for a camping trip this summer and you better believe we will be stopping by Leavenworth for a brat, or two!

 Let me explain these photos....Blake just walked up to Rudolph and said: "Can I hold you?". Not a joke, those are his exact words! It sounded so creepy I was laughing so hard. But Rudolph said yes and before you knew it he was asking all of the characters. We got some good laughs from the onlookers! I guess he is going through withdrawals because I can't pick him up anymore......
