Reliving my youth

The weather cleared and I headed over to Spokane Friday morning. Beautiful day, easy driving and lots of time. I hemmed and hawed and debated over driving 6 hours to watch a baketball game, but I'm so glad that I went!

Got to the arena , walked in the door and it was just like walking down memory lane. Ran into people that I haven't seen in over 25 years! It was wonderful! I saw old friends, parents of friends, first and second cousins, my dear auntie! Davenport won their game and went on to play for the championship the next night. Of course, I had to stay for that game too!!!!!

If you've never been to a small town basketball game, I highly encourage you to go. There is nothing like it! From the very young to the very much older, everyone is there. All dressed in red and white , wearing buttons with the players photos on them, everyone standing and cheering and singing the fight song. Rembering days gone by, the good old days!

Unfortunately, Davenport didn't win, but they came away with 2nd place which is pretty darn good! There was a big get-together after the game and I'm so thankful that I got to be a part of it.

It took me a long time to get home, as the pass was pretty bad. Two hours longer than usual. But my boys made it home safely and everyone was sitting around the table when I got home. It was so good to see them! They are adorable and I love them to pieces!!! I told Tyler that he absolutely has to play basketball for the next 3 years!!!! Hopefully, he'll do it!

I encourage all of you to take a trip back to your past and relive some of your youth. This was certainly a great time for me and I can't wait to do it again!


  1. I am so glad that you had a good time. And that you made it over the pass, not a nice drive. But it sounds like it was worth it.
    Glad the guys got home okay. I think they had a really good time and learned a bit about travel too.

  2. Oh Holly..what a great blog post. What a fun trip...physically and down memory lane. Coming from a small town, I so remember that ball games were our life. The only entertainment in town, and great entertainment indeed. Thanks for sharing.
