So today is my last day up here in the Pacific Northwest and I’ll be spending Easter with family.
Just a quick update since I last made an entry. I left Colton to go to Spokane and spend some time with Wes & Mikala and family. I stayed with them and thoroughly enjoyed kicking around Spokane.
A few months prior I bought a bicycle off of shopgoodwill.com. The intention was to have a bike to work on after I went to school at UBI (unfortunately time ran out and I wasn’t able to attend). So with much enthusiasm, and damn little talent, I tore into this Scott MTB…which btw is far too small for me to even think about riding. A short time later I managed to completely un-true the wheels and had no clue to fix ’em. Ah well….
I took off on Monday to Mom’s and went over Sherman Pass. Glad the road was clear!
I asked Tom to bring my old Schwinn up from Colton so I’d have a bike to ride while at Tonasket. It was a good move and I made a couple rides of 12 miles each. It gave me a chance to realize that my knees hurt because I’m outta shape and don’t have near the saddle time I should. Again, ah well…
We left for Spokane on Friday morning for a family reunion/Mom’s birthday thoughout the weekend. Mom had reserved a 3br condo out in Spokane valley for us all to meet at.
On the way I stopped by Electric City (just outside Grand Coulee) to see my Grandparents house. I can’t begin to tell you the amount of good memories that came from this little corner of the world. Suffice to say there were many and I cherish them all.
I made a quick stop at the cemetery where Dad and my Grandparents are buried and said my goodbyes to them. On the entire drive I had sunny top-down driving, albiet with clouds in the sky. Unfortunately that all changed when I got into Spokane. It began to spit snow, then big corn snow (like hail, but not frozen) and then really heavy wet snow! The Beemer was not amused when I attempted to change lanes…hell I was glad I didn’t go skidding across the lanes!
Anyway we’ve had a great weekend and I got to see so much of my family all together at once. So I hope all of you reading have as wonderful of an Easter as I’ve had.
