If you're ever in Spokane in the summertime, you have to visit Manito Park. The flowers there are absolutely gorgeous. We visited one last time on a Saturday afternoon in August before we moved. Such a beautiful place!
Holy cow! This seems like so long ago. Like pre-pigtail days for Norah (pigtails are now basically the only way I can do Norah's hair these days).
The skirt Norah's wearing is actually a size 6-12 months. She's such a skinny thing! I can tell now that it was getting a too short for her here, but I loved this skirt so much that I had a hard time packing it away.
My limited photography skills hardly to the flowers at Manito justice.
People always tell me that Norah talks a lot. At first I didn't realize it, but she REALLY DOES. Since this was a few months ago, there's still a little bit more gibberish than we get nowadays. But she usually has something to say. She is a TALKER. I just love how she goes ON and ON and ON in this video!
There's this fun little fenced part of Manito, the Japanese gardens. That's my favorite part. There's a pond with lots of koi fish, beautiful plants native to Japan, and a little waterfall.
I swear Rich came with us. He just happened to be behind the camera for all of these.
Seriously, check out Manito if you get a chance. Such a pretty place.
