Spokane Fun

We have had a ton of fun in Spokane! The weather has been perfect so we've made sure to make the most of our time by hitting up all of the best parks and outdoor activities for kids!


Riverfront Park

On Tuesday we spent the day celebrating Ryan's sister's birthday in Spokane's Riverfront Park. This park is huge and has all the makings of a great park - a river with ducks, a carousel, a giant Radio Flyer, and a small theme park! Let's just say that by the end of the day we were all exhausted!

Hoopfest 2011

Each year Spokane hosts the world's largest 3-on-3 basketball tournament. For the event, they shut down all of the roads in the downtown area and turn the streets into hundreds of mini basketball courts. This year they had:

7,046 Teams
27,876 Players
458 Courts
485 Brackets
3,000 Volunteers
14,000 Games

Ryan has talked this event up for years but I was totally amazed at the actual size of the tournament. They literally turn the city into one big "Hoop-fest." At every corner we turned there was another long row of basketball hoops along with hundreds of players and spectators. It was one of the coolest things I've ever seen!


Off to Spokane

On Friday it was time to beat the heat and head to Spokane for some much needed R&R with Ryan's family. But before we could relax, Maeli made sure to work us hard on the trip there. This girl was impossible to keep up with! While she wasn't too fond of the airplane ride itself, she LOVED the airports! I'm pretty sure she touched, licked, grabbed, and ate everything that a human being shouldn't.
