27: My favorite part of this trip was simply being with you. For real! Yes, seeing my friends was great, and of course, the scenery and Happy Teriyaki were great too, but... the very best thing was sharing it all with you! You make even simple things adventurous and fun!! Thanks for all the laughs, the snuggles and the wonderful memories. I love you!! ~Mom | I loved this whole trip, especially the time alone with Mom, but the surprise trip to Leavenworth, a German village, was my favorite! At first I didn't know where we were going, so when I saw that we were driving into the middle of nowhere with only windmills all around, my spirit was a little dampened. I thought we were driving into the country for a picnic, not really my idea of exciting. Then I saw that we were driving into the mountains. and I thought “OK, scratch the picnic. Think hiking.” But then... I got my big surprise: German stores, German restaurants, and nutcrackers. I was so happy to get a schnitzel with spaetzle and a schwipp-schwapp! Thank you Mom for taking me there! Thank you for this whole wonderful trip! ~Jayden | MEMORIES | Wonderful
