::ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND BACK, PART 2

I am back with the second installment of our trip across the country. Tomorrow I will be wrapping up our trip.  I have lots other posts lined up already that I am waiting to share with you.  Until then, grab a cuppa sweet tea and enjoy.

We went through parts of Wyoming and Colorado and the landscape was just beautiful.  The rock formations were everywhere.  So beautiful

We stopped at a rest stop and right near the rest top must of been the edge of someones ranch because I was able to get a pretty close picture of this horse.
Then we came upon this state.....
It was a beautiful state to drive through, but it was BIG!  I thought we would never get out of Montana.  We did eventutally.   We stayed the night in Billings and woke up to snow!  Can you believe that?  Yep, there it was May 26th and it was snowing.  So part of our trip was in snowy weather.  Loved it!  It was cold though.  I had only brought a zippered hoodie as any kind of jacket to wear.  The further west we got, the cooler it got.  Meanwhile, back home in LA we hear it's 95 degrees.

If it seems that some pics may be a little out of focus its because I took most of the pictures in the car while in the backseat while my hubby was going 75 mph.  So bare with me.

Believe it or not we finally made it out of Montana.  Beautiful country, but a BIG state!  I can't tell you how happy I was to see Idaho. We finally made it to Washington and met up with my sweet daughter  and her sweet friend.

Remember our one big reason for heading to Washington was to attend the Farm Chicks show, but first we decided to head to downtown  Spokane and check out the sites.


Right through the middle of downtown Spokane has falls that go through it.  What is really amazing is that during the fall and winter months there is no water rushing through, but once the spring thaw hits, this is what happens.....

Water rushing down and lots of it.  


Here is something I don't normally do; mainly because I am the one behind the camera.  Here is me and my husband on a bridge over the falls.  I wasn't too crazy about walking out on this bridge to take this picture.  It kinda freaked me out, but I did it.
And then I saw this sign and I said to everyone, "Okay, that is my cue to get outta here.  Let's look at something else."  I didn't want any slipsy oopsies.  So we moved on.
I think at some point the Worlds Fair was held here and so there is a lot of fun stuff for kids to ride and climb,etc.


We thought this sculpture was the funniest thing in the park.  So we decided to be a little silly and pose with it.

This radio flyer wagon was my most favorite thing to see.  It's huge as you can see.  What looks like the handle to the far right is also ...........

 a slide!
We had great fun in the park! 
Come back tomorrow for the third and final installment of our cross country adventure.
Be sure to stop back on Monday.  I will be doing book giveaways and sharing some projects with you.
Enjoy your day!
