|03:03 pm - Day 2, afternoon|
Today was a lovely day.
We decided to walk down to Riverfront Park, which was nice. There is this huge fountain right there in front of the park now, which a lot of little kids were playing and splashing around in. And of course, being nothing more than an overgrown little kid myself, I couldn't miss the opportunity to splash around in it. My overalls were soaked, but it was refreshing and very nice.
So, we walked through the park - saw the suction goat, the Falls, went for a ride on the gondola, had lunch at Benjamin's, and took plenty of photos. And it was a beautiful day, but hot. The respite we got was from splashing around in the water...yay!
So, right now "Little House On The Prairie" is on, and before too long, we're heading out again to (hopefully) visit with my Grandpa Schmidt and maybe Aunt Debbie and Adam, then my friend Lorraine later on, before we meet up with Ami's for Fudge Ana's at Frankie Doodle's.
Also, we're thinking about maybe a trip to Seattle on Saturday (maybe), so are there any Seattle locals who may be interested in
buying us meeting us for lunch while we're there, that would be fun. So comment and let us know, we'll work out plans from there.
Hearing a thunderstorm startng up over the TV, so I'm going to get off of here so I don't fry it, and go run around town with my Redheaded Viking.
Current Location: at home
Current Mood: cheerful
Current Music: Little House On The Prairie, Chan on the phone w/ Doug
*squeals with delight*
I'm so, so, so happy for BOTH of you!!!!!!!!
I wish I could
buy you lunch hang out with you, but this is my daughter's birthday weekend.
I'm so glad you guys are having fun!
*hugs* Glad to see you and the redheaded viking are having a great time! :)
You guys have to hurry up and post some pics!
glad to see you're having fun, darling. looking forward to picture posts :DDDD
If you do wind up coming to Seattle, let me know. I'd love to meet you. I have lunch plans and a commitment after 1 pm that day, though.
I'm glad to hear you two are havin fun!! :) I can't waaaaaaaait to see pics!! =)
I just posted one! Did you see it, Valynda?
PS - We heard your namesake song on the radio last night and it made us both smile. :)
Yes! I just saw it this morning!! You two are just toooo cute together! I love it! :)
Awwww, thanks for thinkin of me, I'm so glad it made ya smile!! =) xoxo
ha, i think it's awsome you splashed in the fountain, i'd do the same thing.
uh, what is a suction goat?, it sounds dirty. lol
LOL. You turn it on and put a piece of paper in front of it, and the goat eats it. Nothing dirty, unless you choose to think of it that way.
You know, I lived in in or near Spokane for 5 years, and through all the times I went to Riverfront Park, I never saw that damn goat.
I have been wanting to ride the new gondolas for months now, but it keeps not working out...... so, how was it? I bet it's so much easier to see out of those cars than the old ones.
So, if you do a Seattle trip, does that cancel s'mores at Catacombs? :-(
Remember, let me know when you want to get together and go to Sonic. :-)
Even if it's just ringing me up that afternoon and asking, I'm usually home between 11 and 2. If you don't have my number... it should be listed at the top of Mark's journal. :-)
If we do a Seattle trip, it's going to be on Saturday or Monday, so...nope. :)
I'll let you know what's up. Catacombs still sounds great, so we'll see you guys there tomorrow night. :)
So, we're going to Catacombs on Friday??????????
I thought it was on Saturday.....
In that case, I cannot come until late, I work until 10.
We're not going until after the movies, and we're probably not going to see it until late in the day or evening, like 7:00 or so. I'll let you know what's going on when I can.
