It is so great when we get to have a seminar in the Pacific Northwest. This month we have been in Spokane, Washington and really have been enjoying ourselves. An added bonus is that my husband’s brother is attending Gonzaga University so we get the chance to visit with him. (My Princess loves her uncle!)
The church we are working with is wonderful! They really understand the meaning of friendship evangelism and connecting with people in their community. Over 20 people have asked to be baptized so far this month. It is exciting to see people making decisions to follow Christ.
We met my brother in law at Gonzaga University and found a very fun diner, I must mention, just around the corner. A great place to eat for breakfast – Wolffy’s Hamburgers. A 50s style diner where you sit at the counter, it is so fun to watch them make the food in front of you. I got the eggs benedict with mushrooms and sliced tomatoes. The half order was plenty. Hubby got the egg white vegetable omelet and loved it, and my Princess got a half order of silver dollar pancakes. We cannot wait to eat there again. It was seriously that good!
The River Front Park in Spokane is a must see if you are ever visiting this city. When we were out and about this last Sunday and with the sunshine out, it was a perfect time to visit.
This 15 minute ride in an enclosed gondola was beautiful. Slowly riding over the falls was fun for our family. I am glad it was only 50 degrees though, because with the sun, it got quite warm in the gondola. I can’t imagine what it would feel like in the summer.
For $10 we purchased 8 tokens to ride the Looff Carrousel. Built in 1909, this was a big favorite with my Princess. She rode it 3 times and had a blast. First she rode the giraffe, then a horse, and last a lion.
From the Spokane River Front Park website:

Now how cool do you think this slide was for my Princess? This may have been her favorite thing to do.
