i love seattle: trips to leavenworth

oktoberfest in leavenworth, wa

while i am a bit tardy with the oktoberfest post, it has definitely not been forgotten! we crammed six people in a cadillac and drove 2.5 hours east to leavenworth washington. we parked in some random person’s backyard (w/ a trampoline that we partook in later that evening) and hung out in an adorable town drinking beer, eating brats with sauerkraut, chatting with friends, photo-bombing, taking in the scenery, and listening to tunes like johnny cash and neil diamond played by a bavarian band. we stopped at a 1950’s diner halfway back home to seattle to break up the trip and play some cards. i have no clue of the diner name but the gravy was delicious and they sell a crap-ton of shakes (also delish). all in all, it was a fun day…and i need to sport those beer socks for next year!
