We had a grand time,so I thought I would share in pictures if you all do not mind
Our first stop on our way to Idaho, Krispy Kreme in Missoula Montana !! ( my kids and I have never had this wonderful treat WOW!!!
two happy girls and some nice country scenes
Then into this place which has all kind of things. toys, gifts, and the worl famous silver dollar bar ( it now has over 42,000 silver dollars plastered on every wall .totally cool.
And the gift shop
the Indians we stood next would make funny sounds.... do not ask we won't say
And all the silver dollars. they are on top of this bar, the walls ( every wall )
this was a different view of the bar and silver dollars
oh boy, a new sling shot from the gift store
Oh look we are high up in the mountains!!!
and here is the pass
wooooo hooooo we got to the coeurdalene
playing in the water
After playing in the Lake about an hour we headed to our next distination..... Spokane Washington
But on the way out of town, we came across this..... what a frightning scene!! Look at Mei Mei,
After this we headed to our motel, And there we stayed, ordered pizza and the kids swam the evening away in the hotel pool.
I took pics but they did not come out good
we saw this race car there and they were nice enough to let us take pics and they gave us signed pics of the driver and car
I forgot to take pics of our motel but it was real nice.
we had 2 queen beds, and 1 pull out couch, and microwave, fridge, well you know all the amenities. I can not tell you how nice these folks were, the best place I have stayed at for a while. I did not take pics of the breakfast, but it was real nice. biscuits and gravy, make your own waffle bar, cereal, milk juice, bagels, rggs sasuage. but the staff here make it all worth while. at 5:00 until 7:00 PM they served wine, pop, and snacks. At 7:00 Pm they served hot cookies and milk.
Day 2........ Loons Lake and the car has a problem
Ok we started out wanting to go to Loons lake to See Mei Mei's childhood home of her grand parents.
this is where her grand mother worked.
and here was the site of there home, now a shed and conoco gas station.
OH OH....... THE CAR IS MAKING FUNNY NOISES AND WILL NOT GO FORWARD OR BACKWARDS
Hummmmmmm any one out there want to help a stranded bunch ? anyone ???? Anyone????
Yep, we were stuck beside the road for who knows how long before a nice man helped us push my car farther back out of the road.
we were stranded for almost 6 hours!!! The tow guy kept saying " 20 minutes, so we kept thinking any time now he would show up, nope !!!
When he did finally show up, he had such a bad attitude. and we were the ones in the heat, and stranded !!!
Yep, the car got towed back to Spokane.
More to come as I upload I hope I am not boring you
