The Final Countdown!!!

So we are FINALLY near the end of this endless summer! I made a little chain countdown for Jake. Every day he comes home he gets to pull off the number of sales he got! His actual goal is 305, but I put 310 just for extra motivation! I cant wait to leave California and hang up this chapter of our lives.

Bridge Jump

Stopped to take a picture

Walking down the rail road tracks

were here! and as you can see I'm sitting down cause there is no way im jumping!

The next step is jumping!

We were all at In-n-out burger and we asked his guy what is there to do around here in Modesto. He said there is a really cool bridge jump we could go to. So that day the boys in the office went to see what it was like and spend half the day there (instead of working)! So the next day they brought us! When we go there we have to walk along rail road tracks that were about 35-40 feet high! It was so scary! So once we made it to the place were you jumped i told myself I wasn't going to do it because it was soooo high! So as you can see peer pressure got the best of my and I did it! It was so fun, but the water was FREEEZING! I probably wont go back to this bridge, but at least I can say I did it! ;)

Santa Cruz

Cute little houses

We thought it would be fun to take a picture in a pyramid! haha, these girls are so much fun!

Jake buried to his neck!

The boys playing ultimate frizbee with the Santa Cruz boardwalk in the background!

Pretty sunset

So I just barley got some pictures from Santa Cruz! We went the second weekend we were out here in California. I was alot of fun, we found a cute little beach where the girls could lay out at and the boys played numerous of different games! Jake decided to have the others bury him in the sand and see if he could get out without any help! He put some goggles on to protect his eyes and it reminded of when my dad put goggles on to protect his eyes when he chainsawed the tree in my parents back yard! Haha!
Santa Cruz is such a cute little town. They have small little shops and the houses are all painted different colors, the town reminded me alot of Mykonos Greece! After the beach we went to the Santa Cruz boardwalk, there were tons of rides and beach to play on! It really is so fun to be able to go somewhere different every weekend and create all these different memories!

My beautiful flowers

Oakland Temple, It's such a pretty place!

McCovey Cove

San Francisco from Alcatraz

I cant believe it's been a whole year! What an amazing year, i couldn't have asked for a better man to spend eternity with! He makes me so happy! We went to San Francisco and spend 2 days there. We went to Alcatraz, it was so interesting. I went when I was little and i didn't really remember much so it was cool to be able to go back. After that we went to the Hotel and got dresses for dinner and the play. We went to this amazing restaurant called First Crush! I got the rib eye and Jake got the Lamb, it was honestly the best food we have had at a restaurant in a LONG time! If your ever there we definitely recommend it! After dinner we headed over to the Orpheum Theatre and went to see Wicked!!! I was amazing!!!:) The next day we went to the Giants game! It was such a great game! The Giants were behind the whole game then in the 6th inning they hit a Grand Slam!! After that the Rockies couldn't come back and The Giants won 9-5. It was such a cool stadium right on McCovey Cove, I'm so glad i can check that one off my list :) It was such a great weekend and I'm so glad i got to spend it with Jake! I love you!

Birthday in San Fran

I had such an amazing birthday, I woke up that morning to some yummy blueberry pancakes! I think the first time I have ever had breakfast in bed. Jake also gave me a new camera, I was so excited because now i don't have to rely on the other wives to take pictures :) We then decided to go to San Francisco for my birthday and just walk around to see some sights (were going this next weekend again for our anniversary). It was really fun, we were able to go see Pier 39 and Fisher Man's wharf, The Golden Gate Bridge, and Lombard Street! At the end of the day Jake surprised me with a yummy cake. It was sooo good, It had strawberry filling and Bavarian cream in the middle! I honestly couldn't of asked for a more perfect birthday! Thanks everyone for my birthday wishes:) Love ya'll!

Wish They All Could Be California Girls!

Yep believe it or not were moving! And as you can see from the picture its near San Francisco. We will be living in a little city about 45 min outside called Walnut Creek! Its very close to where my bother-in-law grew up and where my sister lived for her first year of marriage! I was able to chat with her and find out some fun things to do out there. Like i said its only 45 min from San Francisco so I'm excited to go there with Jake. He has never been and I went out there when my sister got married so it will be fun to go back. Im so excited to see Alcatraz, Lombard street, Ghirardelli Square, take a trolley ride, and of course a new baseball stadium to visit!

We ship out our car Saturday, then fly out to the sunny state that same day! Just like Ohio it will be an adventure! We will most likely be there till mid September, then its back to Salt Lake :) But as for California, here we come!

Our day in Cleavland

Lake Erie

In front of the Kirkland Temple

Heather and I waiting for the boys to bring back hot dogs!

outside Progressive Field

We had such a fun time in Cleavland this past Sunday! We will most likely be leaving Ohio and moving to either California or Kentucky, so we decided to FINALLY go to a ball game in Cleavland! The Indians played the Mariners, it was sooo nice to be at the ball park and get a hot dog! There is nothing like going to baseball game :) We also had to opportunity to go to Kirkland and see the Temple and visit the church sites there. After that we headed back to Cleavland and had pizza on the lake! It was so much fun :) I'm really gonna miss Ohio!

July 4th in Columbus

Dublin City fireworks

Sitting in the back seat waiting for the fireworks

We went over to the office on Saturday morning to have some breakfast ;)

We had a great time in Columbus on the 4th of July! The boys were suppose to work, but instead they decided to take the day off for one of my favorite holidays( except when the sun goes down...fireworks ) The day was pretty overcast and rainy, but we still made the best of it! We started off the morning with an office breakfast. We had french toast with strawberries and blueberries ( very patriotic). then we just hung out at the pool, had some BBQ and watched the fireworks! It was fun to be able to spend the day with friends and celebrate our independence!
