Three weekends ago Tyler, Viv and I had a wonderful weekend getaway with some friends. We went to Lake Chelan with the Viv and the Rivs crew. We all got in Friday evening and relaxed together over home-cooked dinner.
The whole weekend was wonderfully paced by the babies - lazy mornings waiting for naps before getting the day started and going out and about to explore followed by relaxing nights sharing a bottle or two (or three…) of wine while in the hot tub.
Of course, during the day the hot tub was turned down so the babies could splish splash. It was so fun seeing them really play together both in and out of the hot tub.
During our weekend we had a lovely lunch and tasting outside at Vin du Lac Winery, did a tasting at Lake Chelan Winery followed by sharing a bottle outside while the babies ate some snacks. We walked around and had lunch at downtown Manson which turned out to be rather shut up since it was Monday by the time we got around to that.
The majority of our time was spent soaking up the beautiful view from the house and enjoying the great company. This was our third big getaway besides a few awesome camping trips with these friends (Orcas Island at the end of March and Seabrook in June) and we all see many more in our future. It is just so fun to watch our kiddos grow together and looking back at the pictures from our other trips it is amazing to see just how much they have grown and learned!
It makes me giggle uncontrollably to see how round the babies all were and it is hard to believe at our first trip together we were so excited when the babies accidentally locked hands while laying next to each other. Then at Seabrook they could sit up and stare at each other and it was so fun to see them want to know one another. This time, they could crawl or scoot over to each other and share/steal toys and really interact!
My heart swells with the joy that I have knowing how good of pals they will become and all the fun they will get to experience together!
