Fabulous Weekend!

WOW! What a weekend. I don't even know where to start. The bad news from the weekend is I turned 24 on Saturday, sigh, getting older kinda sucks. It was a surprise what was planned for this three day weekend, but I found out.

It started Saturday morning, my birthday. I woke up and got a manicure and pedicure, which was awesome. Then I was taken on the Spirit of Washington dinner/lunch train. We took a beautiful train ride and ate lunch on the train. Then the train dropped us off at the Columbia Winery. We took a tour of the winery and did some wine tasting before we boarded the train to head back to the city. It was so beautiful and sunny in Seattle and a great day to take a train ride.

After the train ride we went to my aunt and uncle's house for a birthday bar-b-cue. I ate the famous Red Cake (I call it American Pretty Cake) and opened my birthday presents. I GOT AN IPOD and a Louie! along with many other great presents. I just couldn't believe it.

As I was getting ready to go home after my busy day I was told to "Pack your bags we are headed to Victoria, BC for the rest of the weekend." NO WAY! I just couldn't believe it. My mom and Jon conspired against me to plan out this awesome trip.

In Victoria we had afternoon tea at The Fairmont Empress, which was super fancy, went to Butchart Gardens, ate lots of great food and toured the city. We had such a great time in Victoria, but I am so tired from the busy weekend. Thanks to everyone who helped make my weekend awesome, especially my wonderful husband.

Any ideas for his upcoming birthday would be appreciated. :)

The best part was the company. Wish you were there too Mary. We missed you. I also like the high tea. I felt very fancy.
