San Francisco!

We got to go to the crazy city of San Francisco! We loved it there, but spent a chunk of our time there trying to figure out their crazy streets! We even got to see Wicked there!! It was Andrew's first time and my fourth! Wow-- a little too many times. It was great though, and we had fun with my family there as well!

Here we are at Fisherman's Whaf/ Pier 39. We got yummy clam chowder in a bread bowl, and saw the sealions! Excuse my huge honking bag.

They're just chillaxin.'

At Wicked! Woohoo!

At Ghirardelli Square! We had a yummy hot fudge sundae there. Behind Andrew is a machine that makes chocolate.

Lombard Street. The crooked-est street in the world. People LIVE on it!

We stopped by the Oakland Temple to see the awesome view of the Bay Area. It's an awesome temple! Andrew's Dad grew up in Oakland, so we went to check it out!

Andrew's cute little cousins, Sam and Michael. We loved staying with them! They are such an awesome family.

Whew! All done.

California Trip!

We went to California a week or so ago to visit family and celebrate Andrew and my birthday, as well as our 6 month anniversary! It was Andrew's first trip to California, so we had a great time. The car ride was a bit longer than we expected, but we read Fablehaven on the way there and back-it's a cute book! So we went to Sacramento where Andrew's Aunt and Uncle Rolph live, and we stayed with them. My Aunt and Uncle Denna live there too, so we saw them a lot too! My immediate family came out to the west--California first and then Utah, for a family reunion. ANYWAYS, here are pics!

Here's Andrew at Muir Woods. It was a mini Redwood forest. Really beautiful, huge trees.
On our ride up, we saw Erica Road! Of course, I needed a picture!

What a sad little blog we have!

Here we are again. I make no promises that we'll be consistent bloggers, but so much has happened since the last post, that I finally caved in! Like I said before, we got to go to the Tulip Festival in April. It is so beautiful--if any of you haven't gone before, GO! So worth it. Here are some pics:
