Weekend roundup: La Conner

This weekend Matt's parents came to town and we took a reprieve in La Conner, a little port-side town on the way to the San Juan islands.  We drove up first thing Friday morning.  La Conner is a sleep little town on the water with cute art galleries, lots of little restaurants featuring great food from local farms, and great sea air.  We stayed at The Heron Inn, a cute B&B in the heart of town.  Friday afternoon we went for a run - together!  With my hurt ankle Matt and I are the same pace which is rather bitter sweet.  Friday for dinner we went to Nell Thorn and had a seat right on the water where we enjoyed local salmon, salad, and steak - amazing!

Saturday we took a long ambling drive home through Whidbey Island and then took the car ferry back to Seattle.  Along the drive we stopped at a raspberry farm in Whidbey and picked 4 lbs (!!) of raspberries.  Sunday Matt and Don rose early (5am!) for golf.  After a leisurely breakfast at home, Kathleen, the boys, and I made our way to Ballard farmer's market for more delicious local goods.  The afternoon brought a bunch of work for me, and pool time for the boys. 

AND, big news, we switched the boys to new bunkbeds ... tonight will be interesting.
