We continued on our road trip, leaving Spokane on Sunday morning.  We stopped at Grand Coulee Dam--an amazing sight!  Matt had not been there before and it was also an important stop in Annie's family history.  Annie's Grandpa Emry worked on the dam back in the 1930s.  They have a great visitor's center and it was neat to read about how the dam was built and what a major project it was. 

 The weather improved a bit on Monday and we actually felt the warm rays of sunshine on our shortsleeved arms for the first time this summer.  What lovely weather for wine tasting in the Okanagan Valley.  The wineries up here are beautiful, with vineyards all around and views of the lake below. 

Jacob has been a great traveller so far.  We had to get a little creative in our feeding and changing options today, even changing him in the trunk of the car.  At one point, Matt had a baby bottle in one hand and a glass of wine in the other.   Jacob needs to get used to wineries early and only one person asked him for some ID. 

Tomorrow, we'll head back down the OkanaganValley and into Washington, ending up in Twisp.
