On Saturday, Joe had to go to work, so I had the whole day to spend with my parents. First, we took the dogs for a walk.
There was frost on the ground, so Ava had to wear her pajamas. :)
Then, we took the ferry to Bainbridge Island for 'Christmas in the Country'.
On the ferry with my dad.
Basically, there are a bunch of shops that you can travel to around the island who show off their wares. We know one of the shops (owned by my uncle's brother) and we hit a few more while we were there. We bought some wine, jelly and homemade dips. It was pretty fun.

When we got back from Bainbridge Island, we picked up Joe and headed to downtown Bellevue for dinner and Snowflake Lane. We got there a little late, so Joe got us a table at ZTejas while my parents and me watched Snowflake Lane.
(FYI, Snowflake Lane is a nightly performance in downtown Bellevue where a band plays Christmas music, there is a light show, and fake snow falls from the sky. It's awesome.)

Then, finally at dinner at ZTejas.
It was a very busy but very fun day. When we got back home I totally crashed. I was exhausted!
