Teeny Ramblers

A Blog celebrating the Teeny Ramblers of the world & and all the things that make it work

A little thing I like to call, being adventurous with kids

We decided to take a day trip the Leavenworth, WA on Saturday---sort of a spur of the moment decision but something I've been wanting to do for a while!  It's a sweet little Bavarian town tucked away in the Cascade mountains.  The 2 1/2 hour car ride was JUST bearable enough to make it worth it!  We packed our sleds and snow gear JUST in case there was enough snow to go sledding--we ended up with cold weather but not much snow!

Sometimes I feel like as a parent, some things are worth doing and some things are more work than they are worth!  I'd like to raise my kids to be somewhat adaptable though so despite the fact that we forgot the stroller (doh!) we made the best of our Christmas adventure.

The town was SO cute.  It was super busy but all decked out for the holidays.  They had carolers singing, a live band playing Christmas hits, yummy German food, Rudolph, the Grinch (which Jordan thought was cool until he came up and tried to high five her---wish I got that one on camera) & Elf to boot!

Her first hot cocoa was a major win

We had a bunch of fun things planned (like a sleigh ride) but the lack of real snow made us come up with a new plan!  All in all it was just fun walking around the town and doing something out of the norm.  The highlight was trying to get Jordan to use the bathroom in a porter potty---she FREAKED out once she saw all of the grossness that goes along with, well, porter potty's...haha.  We also missed the big town lighting ceremony but when you have kids in the cold, you have to just wing it! (better luck next year).

Hope everyone has a WONDERFUL week prepping for the best day of the year!!
