Summertime In Spokane - Pt. 4

Since the weather was so great in Spokane we tried to spend as much time outside as possible. Between hikes, parks, and playing in the yard we did our best to make good use of our time. Some highlights of our time outside included planting flowers with Grandma, discovering (and holding) bugs in the yard, and playing with Grandma and Grandpa's dog, Bella. We're already missing the nice weather and can't wait to go back again next summer!


Summertime In Spokane - Pt. 3

One evening while Ryan and I snuck away for a date, Maeli and Grandma went to work making cookies. Grandma had a special apron and chef's hat for Maeli to wear while they baked. And based on the quality of their work, I would say they made a pretty good team!


Summertime In Spokane - Pt. 2

While in Manson we stopped one afternoon to pick some asparagus in a field. In the midst of hunting for the asparagus, Ryan grabbed a dandelion and showed Maeli how to blow off the seeds. From that point on, that girl was on a mission to blow the seeds off of every dandelion in that field. It was one of those perfect picturesque moments that will always be ingrained in my mind. I guess it's true that it's often the simple things in life that bring the most joy. 



Summertime In Spokane - Pt. 1

This last week we went to Spokane to spend time with Ryan's family and enjoy Spokane's "perfect" summers. Soon after landing in Spokane we jumped in the car and drove 3 hours to Manson, WA where Ryan's mom grew up. That weekend was their annual Apple Blossom parade so we figured we would make a quick weekend trip so Maeli could enjoy her first parade. The weather was perfect and the parade was just short enough to keep Maeli's attention the entire time.

While in Manson we were able to bum a ride from Ryan's uncle who owns a helicopter. I've gotta admit, we had never ridden in a helicopter before and were pretty impressed by the unique perspective you get in comparison to an airplane. Maeli LOVED it and would cry every time the helicopter took off without us.

Let's face it, sometimes it's just more fun to NOT wash the car....
