|Keith warming up at the Rose Garden!|
Our planned trips to Scottsdale AZ, and Orlando FL, got a lot more complicated,(in a good way), when our sons' Varsity Basketball team made the final eight in the Oregon State Championships. They were guarranteed three games playing in the Rose Garden where our NBA team, the Portland Trail Blazers play. This of course was extremely exciting and the perfect way for our son to end his high school basketball career. So plans were rearranged, plane tickets purchased, family flew in and somehow, we were able to attend the first of the three games and still get to Scottsdale in time to set up the show. We kept track of the second game while we were setting up the show in Arizona via texts from other parents. I let out a whoop when we heard that they won the second game and our son had a great game. We had fun sharing our parental pride with other artists and celebrated both the game our safe travels to the show.

I went home between shows and sent Mike off on the road with trepidation. He had the longest trip he's ever made in the Sprinter ahead of him. Orlando is a long way from Scottsdale and much longer from home. But, he's a road warrior and I know very careful, so I filled the cupboards and the frig with food for my spring-breaking man children and then caught the long flights to Orlando to meet back up with Mike. Luckily, all went very smoothly and by the next morning we were in Winter Park setting up just one single booth. It was a snap even though we had to dolly in the equipment and art. The Sprinter was parked right by the railroad tracks! So fun to see the train go so nearby. Security people did a great job of making sure all was safe.
