San Diego

We made it! One whole year! Look at us go!
          And no.... there are no babies on the way thank you very much.

For our anniversary we went to San Diego for a week. We drove down and stayed with Eric's Uncle Todd in Mesquite and drove into San Diego the next day. Right about when we hit California the traffic stopped.  We were stopped for about 45 minutes.  We had no idea what was going on, but people were getting out of their cars to try and figure out why we suddenly stopped.  When we finally got to continue on our way we saw the crash.  A car had rolled on the side of the road.

This was the best picture I could get at the moment.  The rolled car is on the right hand. It was pretty bad. 

We went to La Jolla Cove.

It was beautiful!

There were sea lions just sun bathing and hanging out.

Yea, we know. We're good looking and all that.

We went for a little walk around the cove.  I miss the ocean!
 After our little beach day we went searching for some yummy fish tacos.  My mouth is watering still thinking about the fish tacos we had everyday we were there.  
The next day we went to the Kobe Swap Meet.  We got some new tee shirts there for $5 each so that was pretty nice. Then we went to the San Diego Zoo.  That zoo is so big! We were exhausted and took the guided bus around so we could make sure to see everything.  We were pretty bummed because the larger cat were all just lazy and hiding from us, but we did see some pretty cool animals.

Here's Eric, talking on the phone like usual.

Just being tender.

Enjoying our one of three days of sun.

Lions, they are huge!

On Sunday we got to spend the day with Eric's Uncle Phil and Aunt Diane, along with his cousins Charlie, Allie, Chris, Heather, and all their kids.  Eric's Uncle Phil thought Eric just made me up so it was nice to prove to him that I really do exist. The next day we went to one of my favorite parts... SEA WORLD!

We were on the sky ride deal and it was COLD!

I loved all the shows! Those animals are amazing! Watching whales do flips and trainers ride on dolphins. My favorite part of the whole thing was watching Eric smile like a little kid because he loved it all! 

Our last day there we spent in Coronado.  It was cold and gloomy, but we sat and watched the waves for hours.  It was great! We loved just relaxing by the beach.
He's real attractive....

We are real good at normal picture faces. I don't know if you can tell... but it was not sunny, warm California.

We ended our trip with a stop at the San Diego Temple.  We did a session there.  We did a session there and the spirit and the temple beauty itself were both amazing!

So that was the extent of our trip.  It was so great and refreshing! 

I am so lucky Eric and I are married.  He is such an amazing man! With all the stress of dental school he still find time to be there for me.  He still makes me laugh and makes me smile.  I know this part is gross and cheesy, but I love him. I am very blessed to have him in my life.

Jeff's Cabin

Back in March Eric and I went to our friend Jeff's cabin in Bear Lake.  It was such a great break for us! We went for a four wheel ride, had some steep tubing, and I got to shoot a gun for the first time! It was a hand gun and I'm now addicted.  Don't worry though, I won't be going on a shooting spree, unless I can talk Eric into taking me to a shooting range. 

On our way back from playing in the sun and snow we ran into a little four wheeler trouble.  Since the sun had been shining on the snow there were some soft spots in the snow.  There were three of us on each of the two four wheelers.  Eric, Jenny and I were on the second four wheeler so we got to watch the action.  The front left tire of the four wheeler Dusty was driving caught a soft spot in the snow swerving the four wheeler to get stuck in the snow.  Since the surrounding snow was so soft we had to build our own track to get the four wheeler out so we had to scrounge around for branches and twigs.

This is what we left behind.
