What a weekend!!

President's Day weekend was the weekend of tournaments for our family. Hillary played lacrosse in the Santa Barbara Shootout at UC Santa Barbara and Grayson played soccer in the Ice Breaker tournament in St. George.

John and I have always looked forward to the Santa Barbara tournament and make a 4-day trip out of it, but with the rest of the family staying at the house in St. George along with another family, we had to forgo this lovely tradition...

I decided to divide and conquer, so I flew to Santa Barbara early Friday morning and was able to catch Hillary play against Florida. BYU lost by 2.

Then they played Pittsburgh and BYU won by 2.

I took Hillary to lunch in between games and we hung out for a couple of hours and then I flew to Las Vegas where John and Garrett picked me up and we drove to St. George where they had arrived earlier that morning to motorcycle and ride ATVs.

We pulled up to the house at 12:30 am and Grayson's first soccer game was at 9:15 am Saturday. They won their 1st game.

Grayson found some time to ride the ATV in between games...

Grayson was able to play with his cast since he bubble-wrapped it and got lots of playing time.

They won the 2nd game...

Their team also won both games on Monday so they were tournament champions in their division.

Receiving their gold medals.

We had a great time at the house with the Richardsons, their kids and friends, Hailey and her friend Bree, Garrett, Grayson and of course Cooper.

We enjoyed celebrating Carol's birthday while we were there.

The kids also played lots of Wii along with first-timers John and Alicia!

I'm sure glad Hailey's cheer competition got cancelled that weekend because I don't think I could've pulled off attending that too!!
