Spokane for Bloomsday

We went to Spokane for Bloomsday. Jeff had a BBQ with old friends, like Jeff and Shelly Kuntz, Christy, and others.........

Arlie's mom brought her for the festivities!

Arlie got to spend some time with Grandma Mary Anne and Poppy

My nephew, Hayden, stopped by! (Along with Aunt Monica, but I didn't get a pic of her!)

There was a spectacular rainbow, following a day of weird weather!

The next day was sunny, but cold. Jeff was all geared up to run a 12K!

A Bloomsday tradition - people throw jackets, sweatshirts, sweatpants and other clothing items in the trees at the start of the race! Later, they are collected for charity.

Jeff with his finisher's shirt - unlike triathlons and other running events, you only get a shirt at Bloomsday if you FINISH!

Walking back to the car, we saw the sheriff wagon pulling all the donated clothing - wow! That's a lot of donations!
