California Update

A few exciting things have happened/ will happen. Get ready for it...

1. I got my first speeding ticket, no less than 15 minutes away from our apartment in Santa Maria. We were on our way back from Mesa, AZ, and apparently I got a little too excited to get home. There goes my perfect record.

2. I am giving a talk in church on Sunday. OK so this list really isn't that exciting.

3. Tomorrow we go to the Mid-State Fair. It's a big deal. I don't think I've ever been to a real fair before (not so sure that Draper Days counts?) Mostly I'm just excited for something to do with Chase that is out of the ordinary.

4. Chase and I finally sat down and made our California Bucket List. There are over 20 activities on the list, and about a month to do all of them... Hey at least we're trying :)

5. My family is driving out here to visit this week! Our plans include Hearst Castle, Solvang, the beach, and visiting family in Lemoore (about 3 1/2 hours away from here.)

6. I'M COMING BACK TO UTAH! I'm driving back to Utah to hang out for a week and a half. It's going to be fun! I've missed my friends, my family, my house, my clothes..... let's just say I'm pretty excited to be coming back for a while.

7. I took some pictures of my friend Tana. She's a newly wed. Taking pictures is like something to do when our men are off working all day.

Lilo Loves Hawaii

This was the sunset on our first night in Maui. Right outside the balcony.

This snorkeling trip fed us breakfast, lunch, and dessert!
We went to two different snorkeling sites, and then set sail
on our way back to the resort. We were so cold from being in the
chilly ocean so we laid on the top of the boat to dry and ate our cookies.

The second site we went to had so many sea turtles! We probably saw
about six. Three or four of which came so close to us. I would say it was
the highlight of the trip. I just wish we could've gotten a picture with the turtles.

Very harry man from New York...

Virgin Pina Coladas are a must have.
What? This is MY pina colada.
The view was disgustingly amazing.
Silly faces with our totem pole friend.
Practicing some Adam & Eve
Stuffing our faces like fatties...

Bananas growing on the hike to Twin Falls.
Everything was so green and lush and beautiful!

The Girls...

The Boys...

The bunch of us...

It was so nice to just relax through most of the trip. We didn't
really plan anything, we just did whatever we felt. I highly
recommend it.
