Finals and an Adventure

This past weekend my grandpa, Dad, and I headed to Spokane. It was a weekend full of exams and lecture for me, but as soon as the weekend was over we headed off on an adventure....

We arrived in Spokane on Friday morning, and started the trip with a filling and delicious lunch at Anthony's, which overlooks the falls! (We wanted to carbo load for an exciting weekend!).

Here are pictures of our hotel! (just kidding). After lunch we walked over to the Davenport Hotel in downtown Spokane. This hotel was built in 1914 for around 2 million dollars!

Here is one of the many beautiful ballrooms!

Sunday, after finals were over, the adventure began! Our first stop was Manito Park....

We then headed to Riverside State Park...

We then took a tour of downtown Spokane. The falls were amazing!

After a brief stop at See's candy, we headed to Idaho!

Our first stop in Idaho was Cour'de Lane. We took a walking tour around town, with a moose and mouse tour guide!

Dad and Grandpa standing on the longest floating boardwalk!

Climbing to the top of Tubbs Hill....

Our next stop, on our way to Montana, was an old Mission that was built in 1850! It is the oldest building in Idaho.

We then headed to Montana.... the snow was amazing!

At the end of the day we had traveled through three states, visited historical sites, played in the lake and snow, and stuffed ourselves with good candy! It was a great adventure and a good reward for finishing finals! Thank you Dad and Grandpa for the good company!
