It’s that time of year when the lime green tint of pollen encompasses all of Spokane, and the beauty of spring giving way to warmer days as summer is on its way. We’ve been keeping ourselves busy with food and fun. Our friend Stacey had a birthday to celebrate so we met her at Bangkok Thai on Trent.
From the outside, the building is unassuming and lacks luster, but once inside, it’s a whole other world or colors, windows and style.
We were very happy with the beautiful view of the Spokane River and the food was pretty good, I’d recommend it if you’re a fan of Thai. Later in the week we were looking at vehicles, seeing whats in the world of used cars and ended up in the Valley on Sprague. I did a minute of research and read about a mexican place called Puerto Vallarta on Sprague. We decided to give it a try. Wowzer, was it yummy!
To our surprise it was super delicious and extremely AFFORDABLE! For the three of us, it cost less than the price of a fast food burger joint when we get three “value” meals. The plates had large portions and everything was super fresh. If you are ever out in the Valley and are looking for mexican food this is the place.
Along with our adventures in cuisine, we’ve been enjoying our local state parks. Last week we went to Mount Spokane State Park and saw our home land in a whole new way.
Moment of truth… I need to work on being more prepared for my crazy brain when I get hungry. Our next state park was Riverside State Park. Mitch suggested we make sandwiches before heading out, I was resistant to the idea and just wanted to leave. After loading the truck I enter the house to find that not only did he make sandwiches…he made a mess.
I can’t tell you how his preparedness made the day so much better. I really need to work on that, be more thoughtful of our future selves in regards to being hungry.
I would have to say papa was happy about it too! Peppered turkey sandwich with a Pepsi and the gorgeous surroundings of Riverside State Park, so splendid was the day!
It may have taken 12,000 miles to get to this place of joy, peace and contentment that was ultimately in our own hometown, but it was worth it. Mitch and I both love to hike and guess how often we did it before we started traveling? Only 3 times in probably 7 years! Somehow life just got in the way, now we’re going to consciously make sure that we make time, no matter what, to really do the things that we love! I encourage you to make time for yourself and do those things that bring you joy. Make that time, it’s worth it!
