Idaho Cheer Competition

My cute daughter Haylee is being the "guest blogger" on my blog today....I will be editing what she wrote and adding in bits here and there.

it took about 5 hours to get to the hotel. we had to stop 3 or 4 times for a potty break. we got there at 7 or 8 o clock . The hotel had two beds and we brought the cot for someone to sleep in.
we had to wake up at about 6:30 and we had to be at the sports center at 7:30. we had to practice stunts then tumbling then the routine.

It was an early morning, but she was excited. Here she is all made up for her performance:
She is the second from the right:
And here she is on the left:
after we performed we went on the bleachers and walked around.

my team got 2nd place. we got a medal and a key chain bow.
after i got changed we went to a restaurant. I made my own pizza so did my sister.

I was so happy for their team getting second place at their first competition. They all worked so hard and H2 really gave it everything she had! Yay!

I had read about a place called Flat Bread Community Oven. They had a wood burning oven that they cooked things in. The girls each ordered a pizza and the waitress brought them the raw crust, sauce, cheese, and pepperoni. They got to assemble their own pizzas and then the waitress took them away to be cooked. Pretty cool.

Another place I read about was the Old Idaho Penitentiary. It is a state historical site. It was very interesting to look around the place. H1 couldn't remember what it was called and asked if we were going to the "Penetrationary". Oh, my.

we went to a penitentiary. we took our mug shots.

we went to a bunch of different buildings.

a lot of them had sell's and one of them had a place called death row .the people in death row were going to be hanged. only one peorson had been hung on the hanging divice.

It's true that only one person hung on the gallows that we saw. Before that, they did it on a gallows in what is now the rose garden. The death row cells looked out over the garden where the inmates could watch their own gallows being prepared. How nice, huh?

This was the oldest cell block. Boy was it creepy. It had four floors. Two people to a cell and no plumbing! Can you imagine what this place must have smelled like on a hot summer day?
This is in one of the more modern cell blocks.
they had to separate the women from the men so they made a building from the women.

my dad took a picture of us in a jail sell. (one of the old, plumbing-free ones--notice the bucket in the corner)
The creepiest part of the penitentiary was the solitary confinement cells. Ugh. You would not want to be locked in there. The whole family thought it was very interesting.

We spent time at the hotel pool and a lot of time together. All in all, a great weekend trip. We're all geared up for the next one!
