Grandma Jane's funeral and a quick trip to Coeur d'Alene

We drove to Pomeroy, Washington on Friday morning to meet with family for grandma Jane's funeral service. I really didn't know what to expect and tried to prepare the kids as best as I could. I have only been to one other funeral (which was 15 years ago). We meet up with my sister and her family at grandma Jane's house to change and we took a family photo in front of her house one last time before it is sold. Then headed down to the funeral home. It was a nice simple service with lots of grandma's paintings, flowers and fun memories shared. We all followed in the funeral procession to the cemetery to her final resting place next to grandpa Jack. Everyone meet at the golf course afterwards for a potluck meal and visited for the afternoon.

We had decided to drive up to Coeur d'Alene to see Steven and meet his girl friend Tree since it wasn't much farther to drive after the potluck. We stopped by their place to say a quick hi then went to the hotel to let the kids swim in the pool.  Steven met up with Mike and I later and we walked a few blocks to the Hog Fish where our nephew Richard was the DJ for the evening. We had a lot of fun dancing and listening to the music.

Saturday, we all walked around downtown and looked at some of the shops, walked around the boardwalk, went to lunch, then we went back to the hotel for more swimming. That evening we all went to dinner then let the kids swim some more. Sunday, we headed home. We had a nice visit even though it was short.
