Two weekends ago we had some really nice family time, escaping south of the border for the weekend. We were up bright and early on Saturday morning and headed down into Washington. Our first stop was just outside of Burlington, Washington where we stopped fro a delicious breakfast at Calico Cupboard.
We all enjoyed a delicious breakfast, but I was totally in love with mine. I ordered the Cinnamon Roll French Toast and yes, it's exactly what it sounds like. French Toast made from a delicious, fresh cinnamon roll. So delicious... and no, it did not need any syrup. It was perfect just as it came...
From there we drove on to the outlets and spent our afternoon shopping, and Halle enjoyed some little rides...
It was really a great family day, and we spent the night at the Hilton in Bellevue. It was a great location, nice and quiet being far away from the city. Though we had, had plans to head into Seattle for dinner and some sight seeing, our plans fell through, but we enjoyed ourselves regardless.
The next morning it took us a while to track down a place for breakfast, but we finally ended up at a nice little place called Gilbert's, in Bellevue. The portions were HUGE and the food was delicious.
I'm sure B and Halle's outfits give it all away, but we spent our afternoon taking in the Patriots and Seahawks game. Halle was fabulous and lasted as long as we stayed (which was about halfway through the 4th quarter), and we thankfully had covered seats and were able to stay dry. We were disappointed that the Pats lost, but overall, it was an incredible weekend.
This weekend was another great one. We were once again in the good ol' USA, only this time, we were on the east coast, back in Massachusetts visiting B's family. His cousin got married on Thursday and we had an incredible time celebrating and visiting with everyone over the weekend. My camera was tucked away for our whole visit, with the exception of a little family walk we took yesterday morning. We took Halle down to the pond near B's parents house to feed the ducks, and then enjoyed some of the leaves in a nearby park.
It's moments like this that make me happy. These small memories that we create together, and the smiles that we get from our baby girl with each new experience we introduce her to. I know we have many more to come, and I look forward to each of them.
What did you get up to this past weekend?
