We took a festive holiday day trip to the Leavenworth Christmas Lighting Festival and did a snowy hike to Lake Serene and WOW it was the best way to get in the holiday spirit! Leavenworth is the cutest Bavarian village town located in Washington state and makes you feel like you’re in Europe. We had the best day playing in the snow, eating bratwursts, dancing with Rudolph, and seeing the Christmas lights.
