We left Sandpoint yesterday morning and had an uneventful drive over yesterday. Except for a little rain on Snoqualmie, the roads were dry. As always, I hate Seattle traffic!

We had dinner here last night at the hotel, and are looking for a place with PAC 12 TV so we can watch the Lady Zags today at 1. The hotel restaurant has it, but they are having Santa Clause in there because the lobby is undergoing renovation--so all the TV's will be tuned to cartoons.

The weather here is overcast, but no rain yet.

Was feeling a little under-the-weather, so I spent most of today in the hotel room. I could not get the Lady Zags game on TV, so I followed it with TerpZag's thread and the tweets of WBB. They had a rough game.


Here are pics of the pre-game social:

We got home home about 6:30, I fixed a quick dinner combining chicken leftovers from the restaurant Friday night with chicken leftovers I had frozen after dinner on Thursday, thus creating a new flavor profile which was quite delicious.

Now I can post the rest of the photos. I may duplicate some previously posted, because the photos got mixed up in photobucket.

More dance team. I noticed that they seemd to have a lot of time outs. We had the dance team twice and the Bomb Squad once.

The guys seemed a little sluggish, until the Jags challenged.

The starters were in late. Only Drew, KD, and GC played minutes. I was hoping that we would get a bigger separation from the Zags so the guys deep on the bench could get some experience. It didn't happen, but the Connor, Luke, and Ryan never lost their enthusiasm for cheering on their teammates.

I was proud of the guys, the way they withstood the challenge, and especially of GBJ, Sam, Stocks and Pangos, for his valiant effort with pain. KD gave us excellent production off the bench.

I went down to talk to Luke's mom after the game.

The redhead is (surprise!) Luke's older brother.

We left the game and went back to the hotel. Luckily I had leftovers from dinner Friday, so we snacked in the room.

Today we had an uneventful trip back home. A brief stop at the North Bend Outlets to get Mr. ID a pair of jeans, late breakfast in Cle Elum, and a little rain on Snoqualmie, and soon we were home

It was another great adventure!
