For the third year in a row, BYU played in the West Coast Conference tournament in Las Vegas ON my birthday. It's really no big deal. I've had A LOT of birthdays, and I don't mind pushing the celebration forward or back because Trevor doesn't have many hobbies, but absolutely loves watching college basketball. Even though his work load doesn't diminish during basketball season, he somehow survives on half as much sleep in order to follow the Cougars and watch the games. On many game nights, his awesome guy friends gather at our house at 11pm or later to watch the game on the DVR. Devoted fans.
So he jumped at the chance to be at the tournament once again. Carson went with him this year too (it amazingly worked out with school, etc. for him to go). So they played it up in Vegas! I love that these two get these fun away-from-home experiences together. Carson is growing up way too fast...gotta savor these times and take advantage!
They ate a lot of food and watched a ton of basketball with a great group of friends.
On Saturday night Trevor took the crew of guys to Pine Valley and my parents graciously fed and hosted 10 people! (My mom is a saint!). They went to church and chilled on Sunday and then golfed on Monday morning while Reagan and Carson went to Dixie hill in St. George. Super fun to have a friend tagging along with Carson. So glad Reagan was able to go!
And then back to Vegas for the semi-finals on Monday night and final game on Tuesday night....which ended up being BYU vs. Gonzaga; Trevor's two favorites (but, of course, cheering for the Y in that game).
Meanwhile, on my birthday I met my sisters for lunch at a cute place in Auburn. So fun that we can get together on each other's birthdays now.
And it was business as usual for us running the dance carpool...but we used the dance studio's wifi to stream the final game in the car while we waited. The game ended in a loss for the Cougars, but they really had a fun season.
Trevor left the kids with a cake, presents, and surprises for me. He always comes through (even if he is out of town!).
