La Conner With The Girls

On May 1st, we took the girls on a special trip to La Conner. We stayed in a great little place called The La Conner Country Inn which came with breakfast! Kivi and I toured the town while Peter and Opie slept. Later we all went out to dinner on the waterfront, took a walk and had many cups of complimentary hot cocoa and cookies. After we put the girls to bed, we snuck away for a romantic dessert, which was actually connected to the hotel, soooo, was it really leaving them? We decided no. Although, we did sneek back to the room about 3 times to make sure they weren't dead. They weren't. I had a piece of chocolate cake and a panne cotta, and half of Peter's panne cotta. It was sooooo good. 
The next morning we had a declicious free breakfast in our room, Kivi and I went to an old mansion/quilt museum and then we headed off to the purpose of the trip: my soon-to-be, cousin-in-law, Carly's wedding shower, for whom Kivi will be a flower girl! However, we realized we had left the directions at home. We waited along the highway for about an hour waving at cars hoping one of them would be my aunt. She never came, but she did finally call us, wondering where we were. And so we made it!
And this is the shower where I unknowingly let my 3 year old daughter drink a glass of spiked punch! 
Oops! Well, the long ride home was quiet.

HA! That's hilarious Amber! Mostly the part about waving at random cars as they passed you guys on the side of the road....but the punch is funny too. See-even though I see you every week I had no idea this happened! Very important stuff here. :)

Hmm...child abandonment and drunken preschoolers all in one weekend - sounds like fun! :)

And, Mashel, all the best showers have spiked punch to increase the enthusiasm at the upteenth set of candle holders that will never see the light of day again!

I've been to that quilt museum before, what a lovely old house. Sounds like you had a lot of fun. My lips are sealed about leaving your kiddos unattended. I'll never tell. (Too bad that you put it on the World Wide Web though.) ;)
