About two months ago (I know, give me a break and include a Kit Kat bar with it) the Cute Boy surprised me with a trip to Leavenworth for my birthday.
Leavenworth is a Bavarian town tucked into the mountains about two hours east of Seattle.
We stayed a night at the Enzian Inn, one of the most active packed hotels that I have ever stayed at. They had everything from pools to a mini golf course with goats that hung around close by. It was stinkin' awesome. The goats were uber cute. I want one.
While we were there we mostly roamed up and down Front Street checking out the quirky shops (hat shop say what?) and stuffing our faces with bratwurst from Munchen Haus. I'm not even joking folks, I had three bratwurst within two days. They had an amazing variety of mustard and I left with four huge jars. Why I need that much who knows.
There was one shop were you could taste test different dips and sauces. There was one hot sauce with a sign above it that explained that it will burn the leaving heck out of you.
For dinner I had my first real deal of German food at Andreas Keller and I must say I really liked it! I am a sucker for apple cider sauerkraut and spaetzle (not together of course).
Other events of the trip were Maifest, seeing a massive German dressed up horse and a flat tire on our way home. The Cute boy was such a rockstar while fixing the tire. We seriously drove 1 1/2 hours on a flat tire and had no idea.
For my birthday, the mister showered me with lovely gifts and dinner at Lola. Dinner was super yummy and the coconut cream pie was killer. We will definitely be going back sometime soon!
YAY for another awesome birthday! I'm so spoiled.
