fast and furious

On Friday afternoon, Hubby and I rented a car and sprinted down to Boise to watch our nephew, Alex, play in the state high school baseball tournament. They were ranked first, having lost only two of their games this season. They were favored to win, and Tom wanted to be there to cheer him on. I wanted to go to be with him and see my sister. We were also wanting to spend time with Tom's older brother, his wife and two of their kids.

Unfortunately for Alex, the game did not go as planned. They lost the game Friday night which put them out of the running for first place. They played a very exciting game on Saturday and took the third place trophy. My sister took some time out of her busy Saturday to hang with me for a couple of hours. I miss her, and enjoy being with my only sibling. Because of time, I didn't get to see her four kids. Hopefully, I'll see them soon.

We were brave and left our kids home alone. On Saturday Cameron made crepes for breakfast. His mission assignment went over great with everyone. He pulled out my largest frying pan to try to break a record for the largest crepe.

Courtney, knowing me, thought I would like pictures documenting the momentous event.
We returned home Saturday night, grateful for friends who kept an eye on our kids and went above and beyond the call for them. The kids are ready for us to go again!
It was a fast and furious trip, but well worth it.

What a fun little escape for the two of you.

Looks like those missionary skills really came in handy on Saturday with the crepe making.
