  • Mei Mei and Karla's washington,and Idaho trip report

    We had a grand time,so I thought I would share in pictures if you all do not mind

    Our first stop on our way to Idaho, Krispy Kreme in Missoula Montana !! ( my kids and I have never had this wonderful treat WOW!!!



    Second Stop
    two happy girls and some nice country scenes


    Then into this place which has all kind of things. toys, gifts, and the worl famous silver dollar bar ( it now has over 42,000 silver dollars plastered on every wall .totally cool.

    And the gift shop


    the Indians we stood next would make funny sounds.... do not ask we won't say :lol:



    And all the silver dollars. they are on top of this bar, the walls ( every wall )


    this was a different view of the bar and silver dollars


    oh boy, a new sling shot from the gift store

    Oh look we are high up in the mountains!!!


    and here is the pass



    YAY!!!!!! Idaho!!!


    wooooo hooooo we got to the coeurdalene
    Lake !!



    playing in the water


    After playing in the Lake about an hour we headed to our next distination..... Spokane Washington
    But on the way out of town, we came across this..... what a frightning scene!! Look at Mei Mei, :lol:


    After this we headed to our motel, And there we stayed, ordered pizza and the kids swam the evening away in the hotel pool.
    I took pics but they did not come out good


    we saw this race car there and they were nice enough to let us take pics and they gave us signed pics of the driver and car


    I forgot to take pics of our motel but it was real nice.
    we had 2 queen beds, and 1 pull out couch, and microwave, fridge, well you know all the amenities. I can not tell you how nice these folks were, the best place I have stayed at for a while. I did not take pics of the breakfast, but it was real nice. biscuits and gravy, make your own waffle bar, cereal, milk juice, bagels, rggs sasuage. but the staff here make it all worth while. at 5:00 until 7:00 PM they served wine, pop, and snacks. At 7:00 Pm they served hot cookies and milk.
    Day 2........ Loons Lake and the car has a problem

    Ok we started out wanting to go to Loons lake to See Mei Mei's childhood home of her grand parents.

    this is where her grand mother worked.


    and here was the site of there home, now a shed and conoco gas station.


    OH OH....... THE CAR IS MAKING FUNNY NOISES AND WILL NOT GO FORWARD OR BACKWARDS


    Hummmmmmm any one out there want to help a stranded bunch ? anyone ???? Anyone????


    Yep, we were stuck beside the road for who knows how long before a nice man helped us push my car farther back out of the road.
    we were stranded for almost 6 hours!!! The tow guy kept saying " 20 minutes, so we kept thinking any time now he would show up, nope !!!
    When he did finally show up, he had such a bad attitude. and we were the ones in the heat, and stranded !!!


    Yep, the car got towed back to Spokane.

    More to come as I upload I hope I am not boring you

      ok, so after hours with kids and wanting to get to Silverwood theme park we knew we were not going there today :lol: but these kids were awsome, not a peep and no fussing, super kids I tell ya Super!!!

      So the GMC auto dealership my car was being towed to told Mei Mei they were sending some one for us..... ok, another hour and we got ....... Louie... !!! This was the nicest man !!
      He chatted alll the way to the dealership, and stoped and picked up his lunch ( even though it was really almost dinner time) and bought us all giant cookies What a people pleaser, he was a super nice guy and I enjoyed his conversation!! oh and the kids liked him to :lol:


      Then Enterprise came to get us and drove us to get our rental car. yay!! we wanted to be back at our motel as it was a long day
      What a bunch of hams, we thought these guys were funny, and my daughter thought they were so cute. and they heard I was going to post there pic on the web so they posed for us :lol: they were so nice!!!
