These deals were compiled just for you by specialist Michele who has lived in Spokane her whole life. She met her husband here 7 years ago.  He was in the Air Force and got stationed at Fairchild AFB.  They have been blessed with one adorable, 2 year old boy, whom she has the privilege of staying home and taking care of.  Her husband just recently got out of the Air Force after 8 years and is now a full-time student, so they are always looking for fun, inexpensive things to do around town.  She hope this list helps you and your family find some fun things to do together.2 Comments
