I’ve been in dire need of a vacation. A good vacation. It finally came to fruition. We planned a guys trip down to my parents condo in Mesquite Nevada.
My dad, myself and my soon to be brother-in-law Tyler headed out to Mesquite on Thursday evening. We made pretty good time, and got into town around 11pm. Friday was spent chilling by the pool, eating good food and just relaxing. Friday night, my brother Sam joined us.
Saturday we went golfing at one of the cheaper golf courses in Mesquite. We went to the Coyote Willows Golf Course, which is in the middle of a neighborhood and run by volunteers from what I understand. I wasn’t originally going to play as I had hurt my back pretty bad on the prior Tuesday. After some putting and practicing while waiting for our tee time, I decided the movement wasn’t going to bother the back so I joined in for some golf. It was fun and we all had a good time.
That same evening we tried to hit the buffet, which was about to close and was serving Mexican food, which we had the night before. We decided to go to the other restaurant in the Eureka casino, which turned out to be ok. On our way back to the condo we decided we wanted to go see a movie, so we went and saw Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. It was pretty funny and we all enjoyed it.
Sunday was another super chill day. Sam and Tyler had to head home, and left us around 11am after breakfast. My dad and I sat around and just watched TV for a few and then spent the afternoon at the pool. Reading, chilling and trying to swim in the freezing cold pool. Thank goodness for the hot tub. Went and hit up the local Chinese restaurant and then came back and watched movies.
We came home today, Monday. It was a really good trip, even with the bad back, and I’m glad we could all go. I wish my other brothers could have come too, but hopefully we can make this an annual event and get more of us out to it.
Here’s a short video of some of the fun we had while in Mesquite!
