California Trip

Soooo Jacquie, Devon, Kyle, and I took a trip to Cali August 14th-19th. We were able to fly which was really nice. We we able to stay at Jacquie's dad's house and use his truck which was way cool too. The Friday we got there we went to the famous Griffith Observatory and watched a cool show in the planetariam and learned about constelations and the scientist Galileo and his discoveries. Saturday, we went to Huntington Beach. Kyle and Devon chopped up wood at jacquie's mom's house to bring for a bonfire there on the beach. But all the pits were taken when we got there! Dang it. We still had fun and ate a Luigi's which was off a strip of stores and other restaurants. I didn't really like my pasta that much, but it was cool to eat outside and listen to live music that was going on. Sunday, we went to Laguna Beach (which is really famous.) There were tons of people there, the water had a ton of seaweed tho and the seaweed was on the shore and lil buggies were swarming around. yuck! I was thinking people must live in Laguna then go to a different beach cuz it wasn't that great...haha. We also went to Downtown Disneyland. The re was live music outside and we went through the Disney store there. We were also able to see fire works that was from inside the actual park.

Monday, we went to Six Flags! It was wayy fun. The lines were horrible, but the rides were really good. I think our favorite ride was Tatsu. Your body is facing down and the ride makes you feel like you're flying around the park! Tuesday, we went to the best beach Newport. The water was really nice and the sand was clean. Beautiful! That night we went to the Dodgers game and the Dodgers got a lot of hits! They won 7-3. I got cotton candy and a dodger dog too. heehee

Oh! We also saw the Los Angeles Temple! sooo tall and beautiful! Traffic there was THE WORST though. ALL DAY is rush hour I think. haha

My 21st birthday!!

When we got back camping we had a lil party for my Bday that night! I was so happy that everyone I invited was able to come! Kyle's old roommates Scott and Trent, my old roommates Stacie and Jacquie, Stacie's husband Cliff, Bridget, Jimmie, and Devon! We had Lil Ceasars pizza and cake. We also played some games of Catch Phrase. We then all went to the dollar theater and saw Terminator. Oh yeahhh!


Kyle and I went camping on the night of my birthday with Bridget and Jimmie. We went in the canyon in Heber City I believe. It was great! It was really funny when we were setting up out tents b/c me and Kyle's was tiny compared to Bridget and jimmie's! haha! Bridget and Jimmie also had this way nice mattress too. It was as big as a regular full sized bed and thick like one too! Kyle and I had never seen one of those before! We had foiled dinners and smores that night. The next morning we went hiking in the woods and saw a baby deer! It still had its spots! It was soo cute! We also saw a whole herd of elk! Jimmie would use his elk caller and Jimmie said that one of the females was trying to see what we were and if we were a stranded baby elk. It was really neat!

I also shot my first bow and arrow! Jimmie loves hunting and he has alll the gear. I tried a shot with Bridget's 30 pound bow and Kyle used Jimmie's 55 pound bow. I was nervous that I would shoot it so bad we weren't gonna be able to find Bridget's arrow, but I actually shot the target! (We were about 20 yards away I think.)I was relieved...haha. Kyle did an awesome job too. It's really hard to pull those things back!! You have to be strong. I was glad I was able to learn tho. I'm so glad we were able to go! It was a cool Bday adventure.
