Enjoying Spokane Valley

What an enjoyable drive it was from Bellevue to Spokane this morning. We left about 6:30 a.m. and met up with Avery, Peyton, Lily and their parents at their hotel before 11:00 a.m.

After wandering around the Spokane Valley Mall for awhile we headed for lunch at the well-reviewed Max Restaurant. It was a terrific choice - especially for Daddy Dave's birthday lunch - with a large brunch / lunch menu and we all left satisfied.

We checked in at our own hotel, the quite new Hampton Inn & Suites, Spokane Valley.

During the friendly and efficient check-in, we were told we'd been upgraded to a King Suite on the fourth floor - upgrades at a Hampton Inn? Our only other upgrade was years ago in Birmingham AL when we were upgraded into a "handicapped accessible" room.

Yet, when we opened the door, this is what we found...
Not bad for a Hampton Inn, is it?

We'll soon drive over to the Hub Sports Center. The main purpose of our trip of course is to watch our Avery compete in the Washington State Level 5/6 Gymnastics competition.

We'll try to stay calm and naturally we're very proud grandparents to know that she qualified for this.
