Tales of a Birthday Trip

This weekend was my lovely husband's birthday. I surprised him with a trip to our favourite little getaway town, La Conner. We usually camp, but the wet and very cold conditions were not exactly fun camping weather so I had found us a fun condo right in the heart of the quaint downtown.

We spent the day yesterday eating lunch in town, getting coffee from the little roasting company, La Crema and making the most of the hot tub at the condo! We went out to dinner at the wonderful Seeds Bistro, before heading back for more hot-tubbing and cupcakes!

This morning, after checking out, we went out to breakfast at the Calico Cupboard - another favourite haunt of ours. There are some wonderful signs in this restaurant including one that said, 'Chocolate is an essential nutrient' and another that said, 'A balanced diet is having a cookie in both hands' I thought they were great! Then we wandered around some of the little boutiques and antique shops before we headed back to Seattle.

Jeremy has been away on business most of the last two weeks and this was some much needed time away together, relaxing and reconnecting.

Happy Birthday to you baby! I can't wait to see what this year holds for us.

Here are a few pics from our little trip.
This is the gate to our condo, which was above a coffee shop and an art gallery, right on the main street. You can see the door to the condo if you look carefully.

Our deck was at the front of the condo, and had beautiful views - but was right above the high street! (I took this this morning, and it was a little rainy but yesterday it was a totally clear day - perfect hot tub weather!)

Here we are all dressed up and ready for dinner -

and here we are outside the restaurant - I wanted to get a pic inside, but it was a pretty small restaurant and Jeremy was not excited about the idea we would be drawing attention to us. So because it was his birthday we waited and took this instead!!

Back to the condo for dessert - Trophy cupcakes (yay Groupon), brought from home.I had Red Velvet cake with cream cheese frosting and he had Vanilla cake with Chocolate buttercream frosting. All good. All the time.

And after all that food had settled, we had one final dip in the hot tub. I love the self timer for taking pics just like this!
