Saturday we went to Leavenworth. I had never been there before and thought it was so cute. We treated ourselves to homemade chocolate, gingerbread cookies, and danish treats. We enjoyed lunch in the park and walking the cute little streets and looking through shops. We then went out to Asian food for my moms birthday. All you can eat Asian food is the best.
It rained on the drive all the way, but when we got there it was so nice!
Street view of some of the shops and hotels.
Fun old bus that fits right in with the town!
We tried to get a good picture of Topher with all the dolls before the store owner came back... This is the best we got.

We then went to the Point Defience Zoo in Tacoma. We just missed the popular time so there weren't very many animals, but the kids playground was awesome. Friday Nicole, Renae, and me spent some girl time together to celebrate Renaes birthday. Nicole treated us to pedecures and asian treats. I learned that I do not like coconut milk, especially with chunks of coconut. Saturday night we continued our celebration of Renaes birthday by going to Chuck e cheese. We sat by the singing animals. I hadn't been to Chuck e cheese for years but I do remember the singing animals. Woooohoooo.
The pizza was pretty good, the rootbeer was great (we don't buy soda very often so when I get around it I tend to go overboard), and the arcade was fun. Toph loved the singing animals, managed to take a nap with all the arcade noise, I was less than a second away from beating Chris at the racing game, and it was really fun watching Chris and Renae play Dance Dance.
Sunday night we went to Chris's dads house for dinner and had chicken. Chris said it was just chicken from Albertsons but I thought it was the best chicken ever. I think I was really hungry.
It was sad to see the week come to an end. I was really enjoying having more family around. Toph and Daisy really hit it off. Daisy would play with Toph all day long. She loved to bring him toys, read to him, sing to him, talk to him, pat his bumb and back like we do, and I think her favorite thing was to hold him. Toph is lucky to have such a loving cousin. Here is a few pictures of our fun week.
