San Francisco

Abe had to go to San Francisco for work last week for a couple days so me and the boys decided to join him. We had such a fun week! The first few days we spent in Santa Rosa where Abe had to work for two days. Santa Rosa is about an hour North of San Francisco and it was so beautiful. We drove through Napa Valley (wine country) and saw tons of vineyards. Then we drove down the coast to Monterey and went to the aquarium which was amazing. We spent 5 hours there, and with kids that's a long time. After that we went on 17 mile drive and saw Pebble beach and the sea lions. The last few days we spent in San Francisco with my Uncle Rob who lives there. We rode the cable cars and went to Fishermen's Wharf, Pier 39, Lombard Street, Golden Gate Bridge, and Muir Woods. Then me and Gage flew home and Abe and Ryker drove home ($95 dollars well spent).

While Abe worked during those two days I took the boys to the beach. This was their first time seeing the ocean. Too bad it was too cold to even get in. They still had fun playing in the sand.

Lake Tahoe was beautiful! This was my first time seeing it. The water was cold, but not as cold as the ocean.

Monterey Bay Aquarium. Again AMAZING!

We didn't take any pictures of the Golden Gate Bridge because it was too foggy, but the Bay Bridge is still pretty cool.

We watched some really great break dancers put on a show by Pier 39.

My uncle Rob was the best host. He let us sleep at his place and took us around San Francisco and to Muir Woods. Ryker and Gage adored him.

We did a few hikes through some beautiful redwood forests. Those trees were so huge!

Happy Mother's Day!

I hope all you Mothers had a fabulous Mother's Day, I sure did. Being a mom is the best! Here's a few pictures Abe took of me and my boys before Church.

How High is Too High?

Now that Ryker is getting too big to be thrown really high, Abe throws Gage. I have to admit, this one made me a little nervous. However, Gage really liked it.

Uncle Lance

Once a month me and all my siblings get together at my parents house, and each time all the grandkids want to get in the hot tub. So this is what happens, Lance gets in with about 8 or 9 kids. He is the best uncle!
