Trip to Spokane to Visit Grandma

We went to Spokane this weekend to see Grandma's new place. It's pretty nice and she seems happy. She couldn't get over how tall Cara is getting, and she is getting tall. I was looking over her referral paperwork earlier this week. In Cara's paperwork, they gave us her weight and measurements from 18 months to 35 months. In that amount of time (17 months), Cara grew 8 centimeters. She has grown an additional 8 centimeters in the time we've had her (a little over 7 months). She gained 1 kg in 17 months and has gained 1.4 kgs in the 7 months we've had her. It's funny to look back at our in-China pictures. The legs of her jeans that are folded up in those pictures are now high-waters on her! ;)

We did not go downtown to watch the Lilac Parade; we watched it on TV at Grandma's. It didn't seem all that exciting, so we quit watching and headed to our hotel. This morning we got up, went to visit Grandma again, then went down town to Riverfront Park. We decided to ride the gondola over the falls, which none of us have ever done before. The water was so high! It was cool to see.

Here's one of the pictures of the water. It was gushing like crazy!

After riding the gondola, we took Cara to the carousel. A and B haven't been on it for 5 or 6 years. They had actually forgotten ever riding the carousel. This carousel was built in 1909. We rode it twice. Cara thought it was pretty fun. She kept saying, "This is awesome!"

Overall it was a pretty nice weekend in Spokane.

  1. Looks like a great weekend. The falls must have been fantastic to ride over, and of course carousels are always fun.
