The last one

Playing store at Mike and Melissa's house.
Papa D having a snuggle with the sweet baby that lives there.

Checking out the tasting room that Mike and Melissa opened (last summer it was still under construction when we visited.)
Long time friends. ♥

Their tasting room in a 100 year old building.
A visit with Steve & Maggie.
One of the great views from their new house.

Oil cake... yum!
We spent the evening watching heat lightning and the sunset and listening to the thunder.
A baby shower for Emily and Oliver.

Okay, check this out: my mom's "necklace" is a bee flying by. ha!
More fun with cousins on our last day.

A lovely evening over at Jeff and Stephanie's.

Ethan was so good keeping Wyatt entertained. : )

Two peas in a pod!
Amelia wanted to make a cherry pie, so way back when we picked cherries we picked a few pie ones and froze them so she could make it when her daddy was here. We decided to make mini ones and they turned out great!

A picnic at the arboretum.
Dessert with Dave and Lynn.

Cars, concert & guests

Helping Papa make pine box derby cars, fashioned after a 1950 Chevy Fleetline and a 1955 Buick Roadmaster.

Drilling the 4 holes in the Roadmaster to make it like Papa's. : )

Spraying it flat black like Uncle Drew's. We still haven't put the pin striping on yet!

The finished product.

Attending a concert of the Spokane Falls Community Band with our friend Phyllis.

A weekend visit to help celebrate Aunt Jane's birthday. : )

It was so nice having Daddy here for a week of our visit.

Dinner at Drew's, he made us an excellent meal of baked chimichanga's. Delish.
