Yesterday, Shannon and I went on a date! Ok, well, actually we drove to Soldotna to buy some stuff for Thanksgiving dinner, but while we were over there, we went to The Moose is Loose, a to-die-for bakery that Shannon's been wanting to visit since we got here in September.
The Moose is Loose is closed on Sundays and Mondays, two of Shannon's days off, so it seems that we've been missing the chance to go. So...yesterday we finally went.
This bakery has the most fantastic selection of pastries, cookies, cakes, pies, and espresso drinks. They also have a large selection of moose paraphernalia. I love all the moose stuff. I have moose dice from The Moose is Loose, and I've wanted moose pajama pants for forever, but they're kind of expensive, so I've refrained from buying them before.
However, we may just break down and buy a moose onesie for Lane. I mean, who can resist a onesie that says "Moose-chevious" or a bib that says "I moose eat" on it?
Shannon was SO excited about eating here. We shared this apple-walnut-cinnamon-roll, which was the size of a...well, it was big. And delicious. No coffee for us, since they didn't have decaf, but chai tea was a good compromise. Notice the HUGE mixer in the background.
They also have lots of signs, pictures of people wearing their "The Moose is Loose" t-shirts all over the country and world, and pictures that locals have taken of moose in their yards or around town.
My personal favorite.
