Trip to San Fran!

Mark and I decided we wanted to get away for a day just by ourselves. We love going out on adventures together and having fun. This sure was fun let me tell ya! I have never been to San Fran before, I loved it! We also went to the Oakland temple, if you haven't been there, let me tell you it is one of the most beautiful temples I have ever seen, partly because of the view. You can see the whole valley! Brooke loved sight seeing as well. Here are some pictures of our fun day!

Brooke learning to sit up!

My little baby is getting so big I can hardly stand it. The best part of my day is when she laughs at me and gives me that adorable smile of hers. Here is a video of her attempt to sit up. We had her on the bed so she wouldn't take a huge tumble and hit her head haha.

The Long trip to Cali!

Goodness.. I can say this has been the longest time that I haven't been on here! Its good to be back :) So we finally made it to California. The day we left, there was 2 feet of snow in Utah. Because of the hideous weather all over the entire U.S we decided to head to Northern Cal by going the WAY long way through So Cal so we wouldnt have to cross the sierra mountains. Can you imagine having to put chains on a huge Uhaul towing our car behind it? ya.. not so fun. So, going the south route we ran into a lot of rain, which in our opinion was way better then hitting snow. Ya.. that route took us 20 hours. We slept in Vegas then woke up the next day and went the rest of the way. Brooke was so good throughout the whole trip. I was worried about that, but I think I knew that we needed her to stay calm cause of the stressful trip. haha. We have been here for about 3 weeks now. We are staying with marks parents until we know where he will be accepted to grad school. Hopefully that will be soon. I need my independence back as soon as possible! But I am grateful they are letting us stay with them so we dont find a place to live in Sacramento then have to pick up a couple months later and go to a different city if he gets accepted somewhere else other then Sac. So im trying to stay positive. It is nice having sunny skies and no snow though I must say!

Were moving!!

Its been decided.. We have been thinking about this decision for quite some time now. Our apartment contract is up at the end of december so we needed to start thinking of our next step. Did we want to stay here or find somewhere else to live? We came to the conclusion that staying here was not the right thing for us. Mark hates his job, our apartment is the worst living experience we have ever had to endure, and we just felt like there was nothing left for us here. So... We are moving to Sacramento on December 20th! Yes it is sudden, but it is going to be such a good thing for us. Mark is going to grad school this august. We are hoping that he will get accepted to one of the three schools he is applying for: SAC state, Fresno and the college in Turlock. All three of these schools are within 45 minutes of eachother give or take. So we figured that if we found a job and a place to live it would be a safe bet no matter what. Now we just need to hope and pray he will get accepted into a masters program. Im sure he will, he is a smarty pants and meets all the requirements. Im not too worried. So, were off! Were going on the next adventure of our life together. It is going to be sad leaving my family and im going to miss them more then I think I realize. But at least i will have my wonderful husband, my beautiful daughter, and my stinky dog toby who I love so much! Wish us luck with the job search/apartment search in Cali!!!
