Pre Spring Break at Myrtle Beach

Ask me how many times I debated dropping out of school this trip. Hint: it's in the high 2 millions. Since we started off this semester with a vacation, my grades were just starting to crawl back up to where I like them when our Myrtle Beach Baseball Trip was upon us and I knew it was back down to the C's for me. Do I regret it? Nope. 

Tayler's team had a baseball tournament on Friday and Saturday, so naturally we had to leave on Wednesday. The coach was nice enough to let all the wives tag along for one trip this season, so we all thought Myrtle Beach would be the best option. 6 hours and 3 movies later, we arrived at our resort. I know, I was surprised too. I mean, it's a baseball trip, usually we are in Best Westerns. We were even more surprised when we got up to our room to find that we had a balcony with a beach view?! I've never had one of those in my entire life! 

After a short practice Thursday, we had the whole day to ourselves. The team loaded up in the bus and went to Broadway Grand Prix, and holy cow I never knew how fun go-cart racing could be!! Ever since I fell asleep at the wheel in college (that's a story for another day) I have been a very careful driver, so it was fun to throw caution to the wind and just tear around those corners skidding like a Nascar driver. We had the place to ourselves so we would get out just to hop back on again.

We woke up Friday morning to the sad news that Tayler's cute grandpa passed away. I only met him a few times, but he was always very sweet and quiet, the quintessential farmer. At 95, he left behind quite a legacy: 65 years of marriage, 43 grandchildren and 105 great-grandchildren.  Tayler was the starting pitcher for the game that night, so he dedicated the game to his Grandpa Randall. Tayler had 7 strike outs and pitched the entire game, winning 15-0 in a shut out. The team awarded him this horrible chunky MVP belt that looks like it was stolen from a Power Ranger, but it was an awesome experience nonetheless. 

Despite my lofty dreams of free time- I even brought two books, but I barely opened one- we were pretty busy the whole time. By busy I mean sitting in the bleachers at the baseball field either watching games or waiting for them to start. I'm so grateful for the other wives on the team; they are all so kind and we get along so well, it makes baseball season so much more enjoyable. 

In between baseball, Tayler and I snuck in a few beach walks, frequented the hot tub, and took full advantage of the breakfast buffet. Then on Sunday we went to the local LDS ward and headed back home. We later found out our hotel was only $40 (maybe a crazy winter special??) so it was a super cheap and fun little getaway!
