If you ever have a chance to go to Solvang, California you just have to. I went into it thinking that it would just be a little street of Danish shops and that I would get bored of it within 20 minutes and wish I was at the beach instead. I was so very wrong. There were blocks and blocks of the cutest little shops and I am positive that we walked by (and went into) at least 25 Danish bakeries.
Brooke is already quite the traveler. I think Solvang was her favorite of all of the places we went yesterday. How do I know this? She kicked her legs around the most when we were there. Kicking legs is her way to show that she is extremely excited about life. Billy does the same thing.
Finally someone else that thinks that a hot dog and ice cream cone makes the best meal ever.
One of the bakeries we went into had rows and rows of the most amazing looking fudge. We sampled the Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter. BILLLLLLLYYYYYY why didn’t we buy the $30 block of fudge while we were there?!?!
Are we the only parents in the world that really love to have our daughter pose with each little thing that we see that is awesome?
She just wanted to relax for a little while outside of the bakery.
The most beautiful horses were pulling trolleys around town. I think that horses are one of the most beautiful animals in the world.
Yelp wins again because it told us to go here:
We did not actually try this cake but I am just putting this in to remind myself to buy 3 boxes of white cake mix and food coloring so that I can recreate this for my upcoming birthday.
What we did end up getting was a coconut macaroon, the best eclair looking thing and some sort of sweet bread (haven’t tried it yet because we were too full).
If you like bakeries. Go to Solvang. If you like ice cream cones. Go to Solvang. I am pretty sure every single person that we saw there either had an ice cream cone or pastry in their hand, my kind of town.
Have you ever ridden a horse before?
-Yes! We used to go on horse back riding tours in Park City when we were growing up.
Anyone ever been to Denmark? Anywhere in Europe?
-No. I am trying to convince Billy that we ended to take out a loan for it and go this summer.
Where was the last place that you went on vacation? Last place you took a road trip to?
