Spring Break in Coeur d'Alene

For spring break we decided to head to Coeur d'Alene for a couple of days to visit Steven and his little family. Unfortunately we have not seen them since Talynn was 2 weeks old. With all our crazy overlapping schedules and lack of money we are not able to go visit as much as we would like to. My sister-in-law Kristey and her two girls were also headed to Coeur d'Alene to see her son Richard and new fiance so Alysha rode with them the day before we left. We all stayed at the La Qunita, which is my favorite hotel in Coeur d'Alene so far. We have stayed there a couple of times now. It is very nice, has an indoor pool the kids LOVE, free hot breakfasts in the mornings and HBO. We upgraded our room this time to a family suite so the kids would have bunk beds, an extra tv and more space which worked out great since it was pouring rain the whole time we were there.

We went over to Tree's apartment to hang out and let Talynn get use to us. She is such a sweetie and warmed up to all of us very quickly. She really took to Owen, we think it's because he looks like a mini Steven. While Talynn took a nap we went down to the lake with Kristey and family. We took a few photos but the wind was very cold so we didn't make it very long. Then we met up with Steven, Tree, Talynn and Kristey's son Richard for dinner. Steven had to go to work but Tree let us take Talynn in the swimming pool for a little while and hung out with us.

The next day Kristey and family headed to Seattle and the rest of us went downtown to check out the shops. After lunch Alysha, Ashley, Owen and I babysat Talynn while Mike took Steven and Tree to the shooting range. We had a blast playing with Talynn in the hotel room, took her swimming, watched Elmo and got her to take a nap. Once everyone was back at the hotel we all went to the Golden Corral for dinner and celebrated Tree and Steven's upcoming birthdays. We had a great time with them and were sad to have to go home.
