Why we loved Californiaaa

1. Kayaking

I was really scared to be doing in this the ocean and not a lake at first, but it turned out to be so much fun! We got to see the sea lions really close, too.

2. Jet skiing

It is so much different jet skiing on the ocean opposed to the lake. There are no smooth/calm areas! It is so much fun because it is crazy out there on the water!

3. Playing at the beach

Yes, our sand castle looks pretty pathetic. We forgot how much time they take and we were worn out by this point.

The water felt so good. We spend most of the time boogie boarding and body surfing! We were exhausted by the end of the day!

4. Pictures

Austin's Dad took pictures of us walking around on the beach! It was so much fun. There are so many good ones that we love. Thanks Neil!

5. Spending time with this cute couple!

We had so much fun being with Austin's parents. We always had something to do. We played games just about every night! Fun memories :) Thanks you two for letter Austin and I come along! We love you both.

Dear Snoasis,

Please don't leave Rexburg. Just pretend that winter isn't coming this year. You make us feel like it's summertime still! Please stay around all year...I REALLY don't want winter to come :(

It is already starting to get cold at night here (in the 40's)! I know, it's still September. So we're trying to soak up as much summertime as we can before it's gone! We ride our bikes to this little snow shack at least 2 times a week for snow cones! It is soo good.

Austin turned 23! Yes it was a while ago, but better late than never. I don't know why but the number 23 is making me feel old. My birthday is coming up in a few months now so it's not much longer until I hit that number too!

We celebrated Austin's birthday on about 5 different days. He really tried to get as much out of it as he could! (we are so alike :) Here are pics from some of the nights.

This was 2 days before his birthday. That big smile on his face is from that homemade chocolate cupcake he knows he about to eat!

Him opening his package from his family. He was soo happy for this one!

And he's not going to be very happy about me posting this next pic. But I think it's hilarious.

This is about a week AFTER his bday at the Cheesecake Factory. He somehow convinced them he still deserved a birthday treat.

This was also our last weekend in Overland Park, Kansas. Such a beautiful place. I miss it so much already. It really is one of the best kept secrets!

Happy birthday sweetie!
