Gig Harbor getaway

Mom volunteered to watch B, so Steve and I headed across the bridge to Gig Harbor for a parents' getaway...our first joint overnight trip away. We wanted to go someplace close (being neurotic parents) but with a "vacation" feel, and I'm so glad we came up with GH. Twenty minutes and we were in the historic downtown waterfront area. After checking in and relaxing, we strolled to a fabulous waterfront dinner at The Green Turtle, followed by a lazy evening watching boats in the habor. Sunday we slept in, grabbed coffee at Java and Clay across from the hotel, and explored the cute waterfront shops before heading to Uptown Gig Harbor for lunch and more shopping. Leisurely browsing is such a treat--since most gift-type stores aren't Bianca friendly, I never go in! What a great weekend--I don't think B even knew we were gone!
