Shad and I had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend together. I had to work Saturday morning for a few hours, so we were SERIOUSLY debating whether or not we wanted to drive to Seattle and see the fam on Saturday afternoon. However, finally around 6:30PM after HOURS of debating and constant enticing promises of places to go and see from my parents, we decided not to go and stay home. I have my BIG entrance exams this Saturday (May 30th) and have been studying like crazy for those. (If i don't pass these= No school! Yikes!) So that was a big reason why we decided to stay home. However, we were still able to venture out a little bit and do some fun things together. Shad and I always LOVE to drive to Seattle and spend time with family and friends... but this weekend was all about us. It was wonderful to just be together, and he was so great and helped me study for hours on Sunday for my tests. We had a great time:
On Saturday we went to Manito Park here in downtown Spokane, and packed an AMAZING picnic! It had these beautiful Japanese, Rose, and Lilac Gardens.
Pretty Japanese Gardens:
And then on Monday we to Dishman Hills and hiked around for awhile, its this fun little hiking/park area right in the middle of Spokane Valley!! Just ten minutes from our house. At some parts you could see the water towers just across the street from us! Hehe! Unfortunately, I totally sprained my ankle so we had to cut it a little short... yup, I'm still limping from that one. Ouch!
Then after hiking we saw a matinee of Angels and Demons... SO GOOD! And then we topped it off with a surprise dinner at our friends house. What a great weekend! Shad, Friends, Food, and Sunny outdoors!
