A long short road trip and a combine demolition derby

make for a busy weekend with not much accomplished.

We started out the weekend on Friday night going to a HS football game. We lost to Lewiston's JV. We heard the fight song (I can't remember all the words to my own fight song!), sat/stood out in the cold, and cheered for the home team. Not all that exciting, but something to do. I can't imagine the people who take this uberseriously---like Keith says they do in his hometown.
Saturday morning we drove down to Boise to help my grandma celebrate her 88th birthday. I hadn't seen her in several years, so it was a good visit. A lot of people showed up and she was really happy to see all of us.

We left home around 9:00 a.m. and we got back at almost midnight. It was a little chilly in the morning and I knew it would cool off at night, so I dressed skinny Mia Pia in a jack-o-lantern sweatshirt---so adorable.

Surprisingly it wasn't shredded when we got home and she was toasty warm. The dogs were glad to find out we hadn't abandoned them and they got to sleep inside.

Today we drove to Nezperce for the Lewis Co. Fair----and the combine demolition derby! Lawnmower races were held between heats/repair sessions. There was a lot of smashing going on and a couple of good wrecks, including one tipping over (no injuries).

We cruised through the food entries at the fair,too.

As soon as the windows come in we're ready to start on the Tiny House. More than ready! It's getting cold and sleeping in the tent is becoming much less attractive.
