Dennis and I have been married for 4 years! Wow, really 4 years? Where has the time gone? Does that mean that we are no longer newlyweds? Are we beginning to fit into the category of an 'old married couple?' Anyway - this year our anniversary trip brought us to Leavenworth, Wa. I had been there, but Dennis never had. When we were discussing where to go to celebrate - here are the things on his list. #1 snow #2 mountains #3 secluded #4 not a lot of people #5 pretty scenery. He wanted to go sledding but because of his shoulder surgery we decided to be safe and just stay on our two feet. We had a splendid time and are highly recommending this place to others. It was super relaxing, private and we just had a great time!

Where we stayed - Wedge Mountain Cottage - a lovely place
On our way there, of course we had to stop by the Cle Elum Bakery. As a child on road trips Dad Smith would ALWAYS stop by the bakery in Cle Elum!
And we stopped by Owens Meat Market too - they have wonderful pepperoni sticks and beef jerky too! Worth the stop!
On our anniversary - happy 4 years to the love of my life

Outside our cottage - we had beautiful mountain views


In Leavenworth - they were shooting snow/ice onto trees. Then they quit as the weather was getting warmer. Couldn't figure that one out. Anyway - they were preparing to shoot a movie there and needed more snow

Pizza on my head? The Hat Shoppe!

Uh, Dennis your hair is a little outta control. Maybe I should learn how to cut mens hair?

On a drive - we saw some pretty scenery

From the old tv series Northern Exposure. We stopped by Roslyn on our way back home. "The Brick" Sadly we didn't go in - but hopefully someday we can!
Roslyn cafe. I kept looking for a moose but never did see one crossing the road!

We had a great time - next year I am thinking a cruise or Hawaii for our anniversary trip - I need sunshine! :)

  1. I remember Nathan especially raving about the pepperoni sticks!!! When we were in LW in December, the Hat Shoppe had a line out the door @ least 20 people long. Craziness!

  2. Boy do I understand the sunshine bit. Do you not have snow over there or is Dennis just irrationally addicted to it? By March, all I ever want to see again is sunshine and greenery. :-)
