Lunch in Winthrop

So yet again there has been a lapse in my bloggin, which means that this actually happened a week and a half ago, but I'm only just getting around to posting it now. Oops!

It was one of Mathias's last days with us and both Phil and I had the day off. So after a relaxing morning around the house, we decided to go to Winthrop for lunch. Winthrop is a super cute little western (interpretation: touristy) town a few hours from our house in central Washington. The town itself is cute and all, but really, it's the drive there that makes it so great! Hwy 20 goes east out of Mt. Vernon and weaves through the mountains into the interior. It's a spectacular drive with amazing scenery and fun roads. Seriously, the trip is worth it just for the drive. Phil and I have already decided that if/when we get a motorcycle, Hwy 20 will be one of the first trips we take!

When we finally made it to Winthrop, the restaurant that we had planned on eating at was closed. So we went to another one down the street, wandered the town for a bit. An hour and half after we arrived, we got back in the car and drove home.
