Wow, have we really been married 5 years? And since I'm posting this so late, its more like 5 1/2. It has really flown by. When I sit and think about it though, we have done quite a lot in the past 5 years together. Got married, went to BYU together, lived in Hawaii for a summer, graduated together, moved home, got jobs, had darling Norah, bought a house, and now quickly on the way to becoming a family of 4. How weird!?! Barbara and Myles were sweet and watched Norah for us for a night so we could go celebrate. We ended up going to San Francisco and doing all the fun touristy things we've never done. We had toyed with the idea of taking an actual vacation somewhere, but I was too stressed about leaving Norah. Turns out we could have left her for weeks and she would have been fine. She loves all the grandparents and would have been happy to be spoiled by them for a week, but oh well. Maybe in a few years we'll get the guts to ditch the kids.
If you are 35 or younger, and don't recognize the house behind us, I'm not sure that we can be friends. "You got it dude!" or "Cut--it--out!" or "Have merrrrccccyyy" ring any bells? Gosh that was a great show.
We braved the San Francisco bus system, but near Chinatown it got a little too crowded for our taste. And when we say crowded, we mean the living-in-China type of crowded. When we got off we happened upon this gorgeous church, which ended up being our favorite part of the whole trip. Love those spontaneous moments that turn out right.
Jason had never been to Alcatraz. That's right, never. It was freezing (even in August), but fun.
So we were trying to think of all the touristy things we'd never done, and my mom suggested we hike Angel Island. She raved about how gorgeous it is and how spectacular the view is. After spending an hour each way on the ferry, and hiking for another 2....this was our view. COMPLETELY covered in fog. You literally couldn't even see a leg of the Golden Gate bridge. The other side was decent, but only somewhat softened the blow. Won't be doing that one again anytime soon!
