I'm just going off what I was told about this trip. Madison and I stayed home with the dogs, while Darric took Max and Kenzie to see Utah State University Eastern in Price, Utah. The day before they left, Kenzie was throwing up and not feeling well.
They left around 9:00 on Thursday, November 17th in Darric's truck. Kenzie was feeling a little better but not 100%.
At 11:48 I received a text...
They were in Cedar City. Max got to make a snowball. They ate at Dairy Queen.
Around 4:00, they arrived in Price. It was 32 degrees. They went to Main Street Grill for dinner. Mackenzie got a waffle, Max got shrimp and chicken and Darric got alfredo pasta.
They stayed at the Quality Inn. And Darric made Kenzie walk in after them because he didn't want to get charged for having more than two people in the room. Darric had to brag to me that he had cable and asked if I wanted him to facetime HGTV.
Friday morning they had breakfast at Farlaino's Cafe. Luckily the waitress stopped Max from ordering the short stack.
Not sure why she didn't stop Darric from ordering his bowl of gravy.
Mackenzie got french toast. Lots of french toast. And ham. She ate half of it. She still wasn't feeling totally normal.
From breakfast they went straight over to the University. Their first stop was at the BDAC (Bunnell-Dmitrich Athletic Center) As soon as they walked in, Max was committing to the school himself. They met up with Coach Jensen. They toured the BDAC. Then they toured the science building and the new arts building. Found someone with a key to the dorms. The coach told the girls to make sure the dorm was clean. Then they toured the common area and went and toured a dorm. Next, they went to the library where they were given USUE water bottles. They went back to the BDAC after that. Left Kenzie there so she could practice with the team. She still wasn't feeling her best and ended up having to sit out a couple times. The coach gave her a Snickers and told her she looked pale. Luckily the coach understood that she wasn't feeling well and still offered her a full ride scholarship. We would just be responsible for the cost of food and books. They told the coach that they would talk to me when they got home and get back with her.
They left there and headed home around 11:45. Stopping again in Cedar City to eat at Arctic Circle. And arriving home around 6:30-7:00.
We went over the pros and cons that night and the next day Kenzie sent Coach Jensen a text letting her know that she wanted to commit. The coach called her shortly after to get some more info and tell her that she would be mailing out the letter of intent soon for her to sign. And then Kenzie went right to Twitter to let the whole world know.
* I forgot to add... when Kenzie was practicing with the team Darric and Max had some time to kill. Max was super excited to get to go to the WalMart for some reason. He ended up getting a die cast car while they were there.
