{Road trip to Pullman, WA}

I've been to Pullman, WA four times now.  Once in high school to visit WSU.  And 3 times in the last 5 years to see Erin play.  We can actually navigate a bit in the cute college town.  This time we were there for less than 24 hours.  We left Seattle on Thursday night and rolled in about midnight.   Unfortunately my Mom and Dad got stuck in Denver due to weather, so they couldn't meet us until Friday afternoon.  My sister and her baby flew into Spokane Thursday night and got a hotel as she waited for my parents to arrive the next day.  Anyhow, we all made it to the game despite their travel hiccups. 

Finley and Miles at the hotel before the game.  Man, seriously cute.


I actually got a few shots of her during the game this time. 


 I have to say WSU players and fans, in general, were kind of mean.  Especially the fans.  They had a group of guys that stood behind our goal and were heckling our goalie big time.  Not much sportsmanship here.  Do you think this player below is going for the ball?

 We weren't prepared for the cold...so we huddled up tight!

 The team lost a hard-fought match.  Always tough playing on the road. We headed back to Seattle after the game so we could be home for our  own kids' soccer games on Saturday morning.  It was a lot of driving, but I'm so glad we went!!

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion pictures...it is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?
