This was our last real day of doing nothing but driving. We left Bozeman and drove through the rest of Montana, stopping for lunch in Missoula. We drove through Idaho and were hindered by a lot of road construction, but made it to Washington by nightfall. We stopped in Spokane for dinner and ate in a nice restaurant. Auni was thrilled to be back in her home state of Washington, but not so happy to be in eastern Washington. The next day was Matt's birthday, so Auni and I made an elaborate plan to get him a cake. We made an excuse to go to a market and I distracted Matt while Auni found a cake. She didn't find a cake, however, and we were stuck giving Matt a cookie that was decorated like a pig. We got to our motel in Ritzville and watched Almost Famous
. We aren't the most exciting kids in the world.
