We're home

We have arrived back home safe and sound. We had a great trip. Riley's numbers weren't great, but that was to be expected with the long car rides and decrease in his overall activity. He got up in the 300s a couple of times, which he hasn't done in a while. We will be going to the state tournaments next weekend, so I can use what I've learned about car rides and adjust basals and maybe we'll do a little better. Also, he has an endo. appointment Friday, so I'll be discussing this with her and get her input to fine tune his basals for the car ride. We will be going to a different part of the state, but it's about the same distance away as we went this weekend.

Well, you may have gathered from the fact that we're going to states next weekend that we did well. We did. We only had to play two games and we won both of them. We won the first by 26 points and today's game by 11 points. Holden played very well. I have a sore throat right now from all the yelling I did.

We did a little site seeing this weekend after Saturday's game. I am going to post a few pictures and see if anyone (besides family) can guess where we were. The first one to guess correctly gets a virtual pat on the back.

This is the view from the car window on the way to the game.

This is Riley and me having fun at the mall.

I know!! I recognize the police car - that's a huge hint. Randy and I passed by there on the way to Indiana.

Tell Holden Congratulations and good luck next week.

Wow Mayberry!!!! So glad that Holden did well and that you are all safe and sound. You will get the D figured out for the trips, he looked really happy anyway. =)

Close. The town is not actually named Mayberry, but it is where the show was filmed. Anyone know the real name of the town?

The "Mountain" in the first photo is Stone Mountain. It is the site of the Stone Mountain NC State Park.
The car of course is the replica or the original Mayberry police car.
The town where Floyd's Barber Shop is Mt. Airy.
I think these are correct.

And a virtual pat on the back goes to Dennis Johnson!!!

You got the town right, but the mountain wrong. But, I only asked for the town, so you still get the pat on the back. The mountain is Pilot Mountain.
