And we're back!

After a fun week in Spokane visiting the Mitchell's, Brendan and I are home again! Spokane is such a beautiful, fun place... I'm jealous that Angela and Jandon get to live there. It made Utah look pretty boring and bland. I forget what it looks like to have trees everywhere. The color green is so pretty.

There was this great splash pool near their home, so it was great to take Brendan to and let him blow off some energy. He loved it! I wish we had one near us but now that summer's over, I guess it doesn't matter so much anymore.

Angela and Jandon also took us to see the heart of the city of Spokane, which is very child-friendly. They have this old historic merry-go-round and Brendan and I took advantage of it. It went a little faster than I would have liked but at the end Brendan was clapping and saying "yay" so I think he liked it more than I did.

The city also sports an amazingly HUGE Radio Flyer Wagon that is actually a slide. Brendan probably could have played on this all day if we would have let him. It was hard to get him to pose in the picture above because he wanted to get on the slide so bad.

He wasn't scared at all and rode down the slide like a pro!

We had so much fun and Brendan behaved himself surprisingly well. He even sat at the table and ate his lunch like a big boy. Brendan's favorite part though was the garage door. The video is hilarious and he seriously did this every time we opened or closed the garage. Thanks for having us, Mitchell's! We'll have to come visit again soon! You better keep practicing at MarioKart for some re-matches!


  1. That video is hilarious!!! I love when kids enjoy things that are so ordinary to us, but SO cool to them!

  2. That is the cutest video. Maddy does that too...claps at the funniest things! She's so easy to impress. :) And I have to say that I went on an old fashioned carousel in Spokane and I'm guessing it was the same one because how many can there be?? Awesome!

  3. oh my gosh that was adorable. "yay" and "uhoh", brendan's on his way to talking. oh boy! glad you guys had fun in washington. mary missed you and brendan
