A weekend away from home :)

We spent this Father's Day weekend in Spokane. I'd only briefly stayed there before and didn't see any of the sights. So I was excited about this trip and getting to play. We visited Rich's dad who lives in Couer d'Alene and my sister who lives in Spokane.

We visited Riverfront Park where we played on the giant wagon, rode the gondola, and fed the ducks.

Josie was nervous about the gondola ride at first. This picture is of her taking shelter in her dad's arms while trying not to see too much of what's outside the gondola. She soon got over it and had a great time pointing at the water.

More pictures on the gondola.

We had Father's Day brunch at the Davenport Hotel in the Isabella ballroom. It was so beautiful and so delicious. The girls spent most of their time dipping fruit and marshmallows in the giant chocolate fountain.

These blocks are also at Riverfront park.

The Davenport Hotel was lavishly built in 1914 and is amazing to see. We stayed in the new Davenport Hotel Tower which was very nice, and still fancy enough that Reese cried when it was time to leave. (Since we've been home she has been paying Rich paperclips to be her servant.)

More pictures from our Hotel.

We had a great time and hope to go back soon!
