Leavenworth Love

Leavenworth for Memorial Day was one to remember. Mike, my 7th grade boyfriend and best friend of a few years came to Seattle all the way from Frisco, CO to visit for an extended weekend. We enjoyed a Mariners baseball game where I was actually given the game ball by one of the pitchers, Shawn Kelley whom played baseball with my brother in college at Austin Peay State University. The top baseball game moment, I have to say. The next day we took a little road trip to a little quaint place called Leavenworth where we visited Mike's homeboy from college Matt (Grody), who is living the life in Leavenworth. Mike has told me many a stories about Grody but it all came to life when we pulled up his his humble abode.. 

Grody's porch. When we pulled up there he was, sitting outside drinking out of a bottle of wine, loving life. And our adventure begins! After hitting up the local taco truck we adventured into the mountains. Leavenworth is surrounded by the Wenatchee National Forest and a beautiful forest it is! Mike and I ventured off to get some mountain views. I wouldn't consider boat shoes and sandals the proper hiking gear but we gave it a whirl. This was my first 'hike' post- ACL surgery! It felt so good to get back in the fresh air and the high mountain tops. 

After a day of travel and tourism we decided to call it a night with semi-cold Rainiers in the camper. The next day we had headed to the water. Grody works for LMS, Leavenworth Mountain Sports http://leavenworthmtnsports.com/ so we were able to take our some kayaks and paddle boards to head down the Wenatchee/Icicle River. Gorgeous day with some gorgeous views...

Needless to say, this weekend was fantastic.
