Missoula MT to Spokane, WA

Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful dads out there.  A year ago today, this is what our family was doing.

This was our youngest daughter's wedding and everyone was a part of the big day.  This picture includes me and my husband, our three girls with their husbands and our two precious grandchildren.

As I mentioned last week, we started our week in Missoula, MT at Jellystone RV Park, which was a great RV park.  Gerry tried his hand at fly fishing in Rock Creek, he didn't catch anything but this was something he had been looking forward to for quite some time.  He still enjoyed himself even without the fish.  I spent a couple of afternoons at the pool since each day started out cool but warmed up to the low 80's by the afternoon. 

We spent a couple of hours touring the Flathead Lake region north of Missoula and at the base of Glacier National Park.  The lake is huge and is surrounded by many snow-capped mountains so the scenery was incredible.

We left Missoula and headed to Spokane, WA.  The drive through the mountain ranges was beautiful.  We are now at Spokane RV Resort which is a golf RV resort.  The view from the front of our motor home is overlooking the 9th tee box so this is turning out to be a complete golf experience with the US Open going on at the same time.  We alternate between watching golf on TV and the players outside the window. 

We played a round of golf on Saturday afternoon and Gerry played an early round again Sunday morning.  This resort has a hot tub which we have enjoyed a few times.  Even though this RV resort is called Spokane RV Resort, it is probably 30 minutes or so to get to the city, so we have not explored the Spokane area.

Gerry's food choices for Father's Day were this:

Breakfast:  Baked Oatmeal with Apples (which was chosen before he made his 6:22 a.m. tee time, so I will be making this tomorrow morning)

Lunch:  Grilled Jalapeno Turkey Burgers, topped with Guacamole, a side of Greek Salad, and Strawberries for dessert

Dinner:  Grilled T-bone Steak, Baked Sweet Potato, Sauteed Mushrooms, Carrots, and a Dark Chocolate Dove Bar for dessert
