Missoula Weekend

Friday we packed up the boys for camp; eight days no boys in the house! For some strange reason, Brendan's girlfriend volunteered to drive them to the drop off, which worked well for us as DH, Kirsten and I were packing for another geocaching machine in Missoula. DH had originally planned to meet up with another gc friend, Ken, that was before I decided the girls should go along too and we should make a long weekend of it - after all it's my birthday! :D

So we left in time to meet Ken in Ritzville, the plan was for the guys to cache from Spokane to Missoula together and Kirsten and I would travel on. However, we were discussing the various papers we needed for a planned return home through Canada and we discovered that DH didn't have his passport - he thought I'd gotten it. I just assumed he would take care of his own and gathered papers for Kirsten and the dog. So we dropped DH off in Ritzville, then I drove back to Kennewick (1 hour) to get DH's passport. Of course, I couldn't find it, so I grabbed his birth certificate and then went to his office to pick up the new insurance papers for the car as he'd forgotten to put in the proof papers - argh!!

But anyway, it all ended up well. Kirsten and I had dinner at the Valley mall near Spokane and had a good walk, arriving in Missoula about 10 p.m. with a little light still in the sky. I love this time of year!!!!

We're staying at the Holiday Inn which is located in the historic downtown area of Missoula, right next to the river. Fritz and I had a very pleasant walk this morning, locating the carousel and a great play park for kids.

Of course, today DH is caching his heart out and we'll probably join him later. For now Kirsten and I are heading for the pool, then the carousel!

Hope your weekend is fun filled too!
