Good times in Cali!

Well I thought I would start these pictures off on an exciting note. These are a few great shots taken by our good friend Dustin Waite at Venice Beach, California. This was right next to the Muscle Beach area and this hunk just got done working out. Thanks Dust for saving the memories for us.My aunt, uncle, cousin, his wife and their son were also visiting Disneyland! It was so great to see them since we don't see them a lot and we were able to go on a bunch of rides and spend 2 evenings with them!
Jacob is such a doll!

This is at California Adventure with Dustin and Kaley. They were actually on their honeymoon, but we're really good friends and they called us so we played most of the time with them! It was so much fun to go with another couple.
Flexing in front of Muscle Beach workout machines. It wasn't quite as glamorous as I had anticipated. Venice Beach in general was a pretty wild and crazy place. From naked people, to men selling marijuana, to massages for sell (sick...), to street performers, and everything else you can possibly think of!
Waiting in line at Indiana Jones!
These are just some collages I made because I didn't want to post 5 jillion pictures.

I still have a bunch of pics I want to put up of San Diego and the temples and stuff, but I will do that later! I have to sleep! If I can figure it out, I'll probably link to my entire folder on Picasa in case anyone cares. Julie Price did that and I liked looking through her fun pics from the cruise. Anyway, as I've already said, we had a super great time in Cali and we can't wait to plan our next adventure!

Tinfoil Dinners with the fam

A few weeks ago, we celebrated Mother's Day and my mom's birthday by making tinfoil dinners and going up the canyon. It was so much fun to spend time with the fam and eat yummy dinners! My mom was just glad that she didn't have to make them! We also roasted marshmallows. I know it's a little late, but I wanted to say that I really have a great mom. I couldn't ask for a better role model or friend. She has helped me in so many ways and she is truly my best friend. I can't imagine not having her in my life and I look up to her so much. She is an amazing woman and she has been through a lot but she never gives up and I admire her. I love you mama!

Well we're back from an AWESOME trip to California and I've started my new job at Flying J. The trip was amazing and probably one of the best vacations I've ever had! Here is an overview of what we did:

-3 different beaches (Venice, Newport & Huntington)
-California Adventure
-Hung out with our friends who were honeymooning
-Visited with my aunt, uncle, cousin, his wife and their son at Disneyland
-San Diego Zoo
-San Diego Temple
-Newport Temple
-Laguna Beach
-Spent a day with my sister at the beach while she was there before a cruise!

Whew I think that's about it! We had a total blast and it was hard to come back to reality. We got in really late Sunday night and I started work Monday morning! So far I'm really enjoying it there and it's funny because I'm the only woman and it's just a bunch of old guys! I mean that in a good way, but it's funny because I'm very out of place, but I don't mind it! They all golf and have kids and grandkids and it's just really funny that I'm in the middle of it at meetings and stuff. We went to lunch and it was 10 old guys and me! Funny. But I think I'm really going to enjoy it here and so far I love it!

I have tons of awesome pictures I want to post, but I haven't had time since I'm commuting to Ogden from Logan (we're moving next week yay!) and I'm going to bed really early! But I'll get the pictures up soon!
