Weekend Getaway!

We don't get do this very often - but Scott and I took a little weekend trip for our anniversary. 33 years go by very quickly, I'm telling you!


We found a cute bed and breakfast called Isabella's, in West Bend, Wisconsin. It was just lovely, in every way.



This is the view of the front porch, including the fountain. Their gardens were as lovely as the house!
This was the view as we opened the door to our room. How could you NOT have sweet dreams in a room like this? And the fun thing is, this was very similar to the B&B we stayed in on our honeymoon.



Scott enjoying his delicious breakfast! We were served Strawberry Puff, Vegetable Quiche, Glazed Bacon, fruit garnish, juice and coffee.





Most of our daytime hours were spent exploring nearby Cedarburg, Wisconsin, a very old and charming town just north of Milwaukee. Totally accidentally, it was their Wine and Harvest Festival the same weekend! In addition to enjoying food and wine at their festival, we also visited their new Wisconsin Quilt Museum, which we got to by a hay ride. Only in Wisconsin!


Above, you can see the Pumpkin Race! They took 500 lb. (!) pumpkins, decorated and carved them out, then they CLIMBED INTO THEM, and raced them down their little river!!! Totally fun stuff!


Can you tell, we had a great weekend!!!
