Last year, we started a tradition of taking Isaac’s school picture in front of the Leavenworth “Welcome” sign. This year, we agreed to spend the night at his favorite hotel, Obertal, and we made the trip more relaxing by it being a two day trip instead of over and back in one day.
It’s kind of hard to believe Isaac is now 6 1/2 and starting First Grade. As a year round homeschooling family, I think sometimes we lose sight of how old he is and the milestones he’s accomplishing. It’s fun to do special events to mark the transitions and Leavenworth is one of these markers.
First stop: Red Apple in Sultan. And yes folks, that is canned bread. No we did not buy any.
Oh and Jason found this cool magazine for me but I didn’t buy it.
Next stop: Sultan Bakery. Here Isaac and Daddy wait for breakfast to arrive. Isaac had a mini-breakfast burrito and this…
Yup. A Boston Cream filled chocolate topped entirely gluten and dairy full donut. It was divine!
Leavenworth and our hotel were only about 10 minutes from the park/trail so we headed into town at lunchtime.
While Daddy checked us into the hotel, Isaac turned into a dog.
And last but by no means the least, here are some photos from our in town adventuring. It was hot, we ended up letting Isaac go hatless and we checked the hat shop for a cooler headwear option. As you can see in the photos, we didn’t find one. However, we did get Sorbetto at the Gelato shop which was great because it was dairy free. And we visited the Cheese Monger because when in Leavenworth, one must. For lunch, ate late at South. My stomach wasn’t great from the gluten and dairy at breakfast so I didn’t eat much. But by dinner, I was feeling fine. We ended up having leftovers in the hotel room while rotating through for showers and Isaac’s bath, reading books and watching some short motorcycle videos on YouTube.
It has been a fun day with a fun kid.
HAPPY FIRST DAY OF FIRST GRADE KIDDO!
