Spokane, Washington

All photos by yours truly.  More found here.

What did I do this weekend you might ask?  

Walked through the Manito Gardens.
Explored Spokane, Washington.
Rode a 100 year old Carousel.
Cruised in a paddle boat with my husband on a lake.
Listened to Edie Carey perform at a family event. 
Got the flu and ate soup.
You can't have it all right?
Still, a grand weekend at that.

How was your weekend?
