Christmas in the Country and Snowflake Lane

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!


  1. Oh, I wish we had holiday fun like that near us! Bainbridge Island sounds like so much fun, and Snowflake Lane looks so adorable!

  2. Just love the pups coat!


  3. Aww I wanna go to Snowflake lane! That sounds like a fun weekend, looking in little shops is so much fun :)

  4. Love that place (and I've never even been there ;-) )! Love Ava's coat and of course, as always, the photos. The one of you by the fireplace is sweet. Such fun - lucky you!

  5. @Brandi Any time you would like to make the quick jaunt from Florida to Washington State, we'd love to show you around! lol

    @Kari Thanks! It's her warmest one so far.

    @Ellie You should join us one of these weekends for Snowflake Lane! You won't be disappointed!

    @Kim Thanks for the kind words! And like I told Brandi, if you want to come visit anytime, just let me know!
