    Today was travel day for Crazy Monkey and the team. Crazy Monkey and I woke up bright and early to catch the 6:25 a.m. flight with the team to Utah! Once we arrived in Logan, Utah, we were able to get something to eat, Crazy Monkey was craving bananas of course. The team and I had a few options from a salad bar.

    Crazy Monkey was super excited because it was his first time in the snow and he couldn't wait to make snow angels! After lunch we checked into the hotel and relaxed until practice. Dinner that night was at a fun place that served popcorn for an appetizer, Crazy Monkey loved it!

    Today was game day! Crazy Monkey was pumped! We woke up for breakfast, but Crazy Monkey decided to sleep in and get his beauty rest for the game. He played so much in the snow all day yesterday that he was feeling a little under the weather. I told Crazy Monkey to wear a scarf and gloves, but he did not listen, typical monkey.

    Crazy Monkey got to meet Steve Schaack, who is an old friend of Fresno State women's basketball, while in Utah.


    After breakfast the team, Crazy Monkey and I headed to shoot around to get ready for the Utah State Aggies! Crazy Monkey enjoyed watching us go over the scout so much that he decided to join! Crazy Monkey helped play point guard for the white team as well as help Coach Frank yell out the plays as both teams ran them magnificently!

    Soon after shoot around was over we all headed over to lunch and grubbed on our usual pre game meal. We then arrived back at the hotel and took a nap. The game was at 7 p.m. so we began preparing at 4 p.m. while Crazy Monkey relaxed until game time.

    Travel day! Once we arrived in Moscow, Idaho we went and grabbed a bite to eat and after we went to get cookies and candy. Crazy Monkey stuffed his face with banana cookies and banana candy! Practice was at 7 p.m. that night and right after we had dinner. Tomorrow was game day so we all went right to sleep to rejuvenate from the long travel day!

    Another game day and this time it was against Idaho! Crazy Monkey loves game day, so he was really happy. Instead of our regular pre game meal, we ate somewhere different! We got through it and ended up playing a great game! Everyone including Crazy Monkey was anxious to get back to Fresno we pulled an all-nighter until it was ready to leave the next morning, it was Crazy Monkey's idea!

    Sunday Jan 22
    Last day of travel for the team, Crazy Monkey and I. Crazy Monkey was happy to get back home and get the day off. He had a great time in both Utah and Idaho and he loved every moment in the snow!
