The kids loved making drawings for the walls and checking out the veg and herb garden on the second floor. The chickpea fritter platter was so yummy that we returned the next morning for their pop-overs and breakfast sandwiches. And Zoe loved the peanutbutter, honey and banana pockets. Yum!

Add some spring blossoms and it was a picture-perfect weekend as well.
