I thought it would be fun to share some pictures of Jeff and my spur of the moment Getaway weekend last weekend in Spokane. The river pictures are of the Spokane River and Falls. It was running really high on Sunday when I took these pictures and by Monday morning it was another 3 feet higher and touching the bottoms of some of the bridges. They ended up shutting down all the pedestrian bridges later that day across the river. Sadly, someone jumped into the river, committing suicide Monday afternoon from one of the bridges also.
These next pictures are from the Red Lion Hotel that we stayed at. They had just finished remodeling their hotel and I love the way the main lobby area turned out. So much fun! I did not take any pictures of our hotel room because frankly, it was just a standard room and we had multiple problems with it and the housekeeping service. They did give us a voucher for a free deluxe room for our next trip up there.
This is our breakfast on Monday morning. Oh so good! Our waiter, Daniel, was amazing and so kind, attentive and courteous. When talking the to manager about our other issues with our hotel room and showing him in our room what those issues were, I was sure to tell him about the great service we got from Daniel and that he really helped turn our morning around after the other issues. I know that Daniel was a new hire but I sure hope they give him a raise. He deserves one!
I wish I had gotten pictures of the time we spent with our friends but we were all having such a good time and totally spaced off taking any. It was great to get caught up with them and to play with the toddler and the baby. My friend Robyn is totally in Grandma heaven with those two little cuties and my goodness they adore her. :) All in all it was a good trip with lots of shopping, good food, time with friends and being able to just relax with my hubby. Hopefully the next time we stay there our room will be clean and not missing things.
