Leavenworth Day Trip

We wanted to give summer one last hurrah before we accepted that it really was fall and the kids started school.  The perks of having a niece and nephew that homeschool is that we can go midweek when there aren't any crowds.  We had a great time hiking, splashing in the river, and hitting the candy shop in town. 

Lucy was so excited to be riding in the very back with the big kids!

After a hike and lunch, Lucy was exhausted and was ready for a nap.  Too bad she missed the memo! So it was off to ride the train and then play mini golf.  
It's a shame that "playing golf" quickly turned into running Lucy to the potty -- multiple times as she's grabbing her buns and saying "Need go poopies!" 

"May I be awake now, mama?"

At least we were near a really nice bathroom because we sat here for at least 45 minutes...  So much for playing golf! 

 And then it was off to town to buy some CANDY:
