Casey and his old partner, Ty Loomis reunited earlier this year to play in the Corona Light Wide Open Tour event in Santa Cruz, CA. They won the whole thing! When the AVP came to a close, they both decided to get serious with this new tour. They have since traveled to compete in Chicago and also won that tournament. After our family reunion ended, Casey got word of a Corona Tour stop in Breckenridge which is only a 7 hour drive from Utah. We decided to extend our trip a little longer to attend the competition. The drive there was pretty gorgeous through the Rocky Mountains.
Ty's former coach had a condo he was using and let us stay there with them. We had our own room and it was a really nice condo. My nephew Taylor and his new wife Mary were living in Denver for a summer internship. When they found out we were there, they hopped in the car and drove 2 hours to come see us. I seriously love my family. Always up for a gathering. We had a fun weekend under the sun in the mountains of Breckenridge. Cash loved the attention for Taylor and Mary, and anyone else who looks his way. Casey and Ty ended up winning the tournament. It was fun to watch. This tournament uses old school rules with sideout scoring. It makes the game go slower, but it's also so much more exciting to win a point. While I spend most of the afternoon trying to get Cash to nap in the stroller, Mary and Taylor participated in the relay race and the fashion show. They got some cool prizes and free food. Who doesn't love free stuff? I was so happy to be there to watch Casey and enjoy some more family time.
