2011 List: 79.Spring Training in AZ

3.22.2011
We had a wonderful weekend down in AZ. We headed down there on Thursday after school, with a quick stop in Las Vegas. Jordan was amazing and drove all night (we didn't get there until 7:30am!). We stayed at my Aunt and Uncle's house in Chandler and loved every minute of it!


We went to 3 games in 3 days, watched 2 games on TV (BYU with the Jimmer show), went to the temple, relaxed, and spent time with family. It was a wonderful weekend in the 80 degree weather.

Games we went to:
Rangers @ Indians
Indians @ Angels
Angels @ Rockies

Surprisingly we aren't Indian fans, we just happened to follow them around all weekend. Landan, Jordan's brother is a big Angels fan so it was fun that we were able to see them play twice, and even go to their stadium. And it was really fun to go to the Rockies new stadium (and watch Tulo hit 2 homeruns!).

It was a great weekend. I wish we could have stayed with my family for a few more days but we had to come back to real life :( and school (dang).

The ride home on the other hand was less than ideal. Some of it was actually terrifying. Just south of Flagstaff, it started snowing and the roads were pretty nasty. At one point we had to slam on our brakes to come to a complete stop, on the highway mind you. It was a good thing that on Wednesday before we left we bought new tires. We were able to stop and were so lucky we didn't hit the guy in front of us. Right after that a car came flying down the shoulder right next to us and hit a car that was about 3 cars ahead of us. The guy in front of us (the white Pontiac) he turned the front of his car like he was going to go around the truck in front of him, but then another car whizzed by, but this one slammed into Mr. White Pontiac's nose, which resulted in his bumper being whipped off as well as his front tire (which you can't see from the picture). Then we heard 2 crashes behind us and just hoped and prayed that the cars behind us wouldn't come slamming into the back of our car. The most scary part was when the Blazer pictured below was driving on the center divider on 2 wheels and almost rolled on top of our car. Totally terrifying. Almost every car around us was totally smashed. Only 3 cars, including ours made it out safely. I think we counted 15 totaled cars as we weaved around the messes to get out. We were all shaking and couldn't believe that we made it out untouched. It was a miracle.
