Thank GOD it’s Friday! Woo Hoo! And guess what….NO road trip this weekend. Yea! I cannot tell you what horrible luck I’ve had the past few weeks with horrible driving weather on our road trips! Thank heavens that I persuaded Carl to go with us last weekend to Madi’s softball tournament in Mesquite, NV. We hit a horrible snow storm on the way down, and then another one on the way home. I was so glad he was driving this time, instead of me.
We did have a good time in Mesquite though. We stopped in St. George to see the boys basketball team in their semi-final game in the State Tournament. Our team was the strong favorite to repeat as State Champions this year for most of the season….however, it just wasn’t meant to be this year. We lost a close game, and ended up taking 3rd place. Tyson spent a few days in St. George with a bunch of friends that drove down for the tournament. It sounds like he had a good time….although I’m not sure I know EVERYTHING that went on! 😉
After the game on Friday night we drove another 30 miles to Mesquite. Madi’s softball team had a great tournament and went undefeated into the championship game on Sunday afternoon. However, they lost! It was such a bummer! They played a team they had beaten earlier in the day and a few weeks ago in Las Vegas. This time it just wasn’t meant to be though. Madi pitched in the first game, and again in the Championship game….she had a big triple, and laid down some awesome bunts! GO MADI!!! Here are two photos of her pitching on Saturday morning…okay, typepad is not letting me post a photo right now….I’ll try again later.
Happy Friday! No big weekend plans. I have BONCO at my house on Thursday night, so I’ll be cleaning, cleaning and cleaning. The baseball team is hosting a Fundraising Silent Auction and Carnival next weekend, so I will be tying up lose ends for that as well.
Have a great weekend!
