We went to Leavenworth this weekend, just the two of us.
(click on that link... it's beautiful!)
We laughed that we haven't been on a vacation that was all to ourselves since we've been married.
Even our honeymoon was all planned out for us
(which was amazing and fun... but it does make us laugh)
So it was exciting to get away and celebrate finals being done, Christmas, and time alone. 
Carson ended up being quite sick the whole weekend, but we did still enjoy ourselves.

Here are LOTS of pictures:
The decorated door

The place we stayed, from the front door

And again, from the kitchen

Us, excited to be in such a fun place!

Our view - not so shabby

The street at night.

CUTE bakery/coffee shop. We went there the next morning for coffee and tea.

Carson hoped for snow - and got it the day before his birthday. Fluffy, pretty flakes!

We decorated a gingerbread house in the spirit of "Hey, we have an entire weekend to do NOTHING"

And Carson did a LOT of this:

But he was also a trooper and we'd get out of our comfy stuff and into our outdoor stuff, walk around, and then go back to sleep for a bit.

Waiting for the tree lighting to begin

Little kids were sledding down this hill night and day. It was so cute!

EVERYTHING here is Bavarian. Even McDonalds and banks. 

Dinner... we went to an Italian place but Carson wanted Schnitzel. He got it - pretty tasty!

Our house. I did the frosting, Carson did the candy decorating on the roof and the walkway, and then decided to sleep. So I went to town...

And suggested a picture of us with the house when one of us was still dressed and one of us wasn't. 

Carson's birthday. He was SO excited to unwrap presents that he made me get them as soon as he woke up.

Very fun weekend! Glad it snowed, wish Carson hadn't felt so crummy... but it was still fun and the sickness made hanging out and doing nothing imperative, so that was nice too.


  1. Two places in the US I'd like to visit: Maine and Washington state. Maybe one day

    Just beautiful pictures, Lindsey---Merry Christmas

  2. Oopps... Lindsay (sorry for misspelling your name)

  3. Next time you are going to Leavenworth, drop by our site first to see what is happening in town. We've built a site with a whimsical tone from a tourist's point of view. We have a blog of our travels and things we've found there that we like.
