Mini getaway

We were supposed to go for a 5-day trip to Breckenridge, CO but after looking at its weather forecast, we decided to go to Amana Colonies, IA instead. I was bummed coz I was really looking forward to Breckenridge and all the activities that Art and I have had planned sigh It was forecasted it’d be raining the whole time we’d be there and Art didn’t want our trip to be San Antonio 2.0 laugh
We were in San Antonio back in February and it rained during most part of our trip and it was freezing cold blues We booked our flights and hotel 4-5 months earlier thinking SA would have its best weather at that time but Mother Nature obviously had other plans for us. doh

Anyway, Amana Colonies was alright but I gotta say, not a big fan of German food…The whole time I was there having my meals, it made me miss my old country even more…blues crying

First stop- furniture shop. The only thing I was interested in was their $8,500 sofa. love I’d have to sell my son for that laugh

Next stop- Quilt shop. While Art and I were browsing the shop, pretending to be interested, my son just sat on a chair near the exit, didn’t even bother to show the least interest. very mad

Lunch was uneventful.

Art had cherry pie which he enjoyed very much whereas my son and I shared a chocolate pie. I think I prefer Marie Callender’s Chocolate Satin pie smitten

After lunch, we went across the street to check out their General Store. Nice store, lots of things to see.

Dinner was slightly better just because we had Radler, a mix of Pilsner and lemonade.

The breaded cheese curds were nice and I urged Art to buy some to bring home at the meat shop the following day. I just tried some at home just now barf Thankfully I gave a packet away to my neighbor yesterday! Lol

Lots of small shops to browse. Lots of wineries too where we can sample wines. Art and I are not into that therefore we gave them a skip.

Very disappointed in this bakery. Not only their pastries and breads were expensive, they didn’t even taste that good thumbs down

We walked past her on our way to the restaurant. She wished us a good day and we muttered the same thing to her. After an hour, we walked past her again and she said out loud to me, “I remember you!”
I wasn’t impressed at all coz I was the only Chink there! rolling on the floor laughing

My son and I giggled uncontrollably each time Art popped a pickled beet into his mouth! We’d rather have our teeth pulled out than to eat that thing…oh and the sauerkraut too! uh oh
