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.
