We spent a quick day and night in Spokane. We did grocery shopping for the group dinners, etc. And, we took Astrid (9), and Hannah (12) with our kids to see Evan Almighty, which was fun and a great diversion from the have-to's to get ready.
When we arrived, then began the task of separating the food for each meal into all of the refrigerators. Do you think the kids helped? Noooo. They just hopped out of the car and started playing with their cousins. They love it!
