UVU WAC Tournament. Vegas Baby!

Randy and I went to Vegas to watch Ben play in the WAC tournament. We had an absolute blast. We got to hangout with my parents, Ali and Ben and our best friends Melissa and Mike.
Here we are at the first game of the tournament.We won!
 We get a bit loud and goofy....especially without the kids around. Thanks aunt Kristi and Michelle for watching them!

 When Ben wasn't playing, we had fun wandering around the strip. Here is a very cool chocolate fountain we stumbled upon.

 Here we are up in the space needle. I really really hated being up that high. I didn't even want to back up to take a picture. Did you know it moves and shakes all the time. I could feel it and I thought I might die. Randy loved it and he and Melissa rode the rides on top while Mike and I, squeamish as we were, stayed put on the couches and waited for them to be done. we are babies.

 Melissa and Mike. They make everything fun!

 One day, with my parents and Ali, we went on a gondola ride in the venetian hotel. It was fun, but it almost put me to sleep.

 After the ride, My Dad was really sick so we all waited for Randy to walk to the car to come back and pick us all up. While waiting, we found the UVU green man group playing on the street. They were awesome and had a pretty good crowd.

While it was a fun trip full of laughs and good company, it was disappointing game wise. I won't elaborate, but lets just say the reffing was bad, our own fans weren't cheering, and maybe Randy got escorted out of the building by a security guard for throwing a T-shirt on the floor in anger and frustration. Emotions were high, and we ended up losing on the second round. It's too bad because we had a really good chance to make it to the NCAA tournament. Oh well. It was still worth the trip.
