Our Trip to California

So I am really bad at updating my blog and I am well aware of it but it still doesn't get me to sit down and post about our life. I am not a good writer so I'd rather post pictures and then put descriptions below them but I don't have any picture of what we've done, sad to say the least.

On May 8th billy and I went with another couple to Anaheim California for a trip long over due. Really it was to celebrate our 5 year anniversary which was in November but Gracie was to little to leave so we pushed our celebration back a few months and it turned out to be the best trip ever. Here's just a quick review. First off there was no kids which was NICE!!

Day 1 woke up early and on the road on our way at 6:oo a.m. got in california around 5:00 p.m.

Day 2 Went to Balboa Island and rented some bikes, rode around the beach for an hour, very fun. Had a delicious corn dog for lunch then layed out on the beach for awhile. Headed back to the condo had dinner then went to an Angels Baseball, I thought I would be bored but I wasn't it was pretty fun.

Day 3 Sunday, we were good little boys and girls and found a church to go to. When we got there it was a Polynesian ward and they spoke whatever language it was. They were very sweet people. It being mothers day they even gave Jana and I some lei's. One of Jana's was made of chocolate balls and by the end of sacrament meeting Jana started to smell real good. We looked at her shirt and she had chocolate dripping off of her collar and her shirt. It was hilarious. We had a big lunch at Applebee's, then later that night the boys went and saw Star trek and me and jana went and say 17 again.

Day 4 today was the day I couldn't wait for, a few weeks ago I wrote into Jay Leno and requested some tickets to attend a show and about 3 weeks later I got the tickets for Monday May 11th. I was thrilled because billy and I watch him almost every night and so now we get to go see him in person before he leaves the tonight show. Monday we drove up to Burbank and Ike had gotten Jana and I a gift certificate through his work to Bliss spa. So Jana and I went and had a a pedicure and a wax done. It was fun. Then it was off to stand in line for the Tonight Show. It was really fun. After that we went and visited some of my old family friends, they had us over for a yummy dinner and then we visited for awhile. We decided to drive to the Hollywood blvd. because Jana had never seen the stars on the sidewalk. Did that for about 20 min. and when we get back to our car we had a parking ticket ridiculous. Whatever such is life.

Day 5 DISNEYLAND it was fun, but it was funny how all of us had to dope up on ibuprofen so we wouldn't get motion sickness.

Day 6 DISNEYLAND Again and California Adventure. Thanks Ike for the Tickets!

Day 7 We did a little shopping before we hit the road home. We left Anaheim around 12:30 p.m. and drove to St. George where we stayed with Jana's very nice Aunt and Uncle for the night.

Day 8 woke up early and hurried home to our lovely kids and families.

It was a very fun trip we did a lot of things had a lot of laughs and made a lot of memories.
Thanks Ike and Jana for a wonderful and very unforgettable trip!!

How fun! I'm way jealous of your trip without kids! I keep telling Jason that is what we need, he is afraid to leave the kids... me... not so much :) Of course now that we have a little one we have to wait awhile, but the want is still there.
Glad you had fun, going to a Jay Leno show is lots of fun, I went years ago and loved it. We watch him almost every night too, going to miss him!
