Spokane Pics

We had a relaxing 3 days in Spokane with my Dad and Sylvia (Poppy and Mimie to Maggie).

My beautiful girl outside Duncan Garden at Manito Park in Spokane.
Balancing on the lawn's edge. You can't tell, but the grass is a steep hill. It was a little dangerous.
Riverfront park.
Maggie was so excited to see the giant Red Ryder wagon slide. She climbed up it and slid down a dozen times!Tyler took a turn on the slide. Whee!Poppy thought the slide looked fun, too. Oh boy!Me at the carousel. I rode on the tiger, it didn't move up and down.
Maggie has a great time on the carousel this year!!! I was so glad that it was fun for her, last year she was terrified!
I think visiting Cat Tales rescue park will be a tradition at Poppy's house. On the stone lions at the rescue entrance.
I love this sign at Cat Tales. I was using a wheelchair there, too far to walk on crutches, and had to move away from two different tiger pens - they were getting excited by the spinning wheels on my chair. One of the keepers said it looked like a toy, but I think they knew I couldn't move very fast.
We also went to Greenbluff, outside Spokane to some orchards. We stopped at High Country orchards and picked FRESH Bing and Rainier cherries. I've never picked cherries before, but they were so darn good I don't knwo if I will ever be able to eat cherries from the store again! Maggie thought it was great fun to be able to pick them right off the tree and eat them (everyone else thought it was pretty awesome, too).Look at those gorgeous Rainier cherries!Enjoying lots and lots of cherries!
Thank you, Poppy and Mimie, a lovely time was had by all!!!

I love the last few posts! It's so fun to see all the pictures of what you guys have been up to on your travels this summer. It looks like you had a lot of fun (and those cherries are gorgeous!).
