Jack Attack

It has become tradition that Jack spend his Spring Break with me.  The last two years he has visited us in Provo, this year he kicked up his SB a knotch, by coming out to Hermosa Beach!  I don't know about him, but I happen to think that Hermosa Beach is a little more exciting than Provo.  We got to do a lot of really fun things while he was here...

We went to Disneyland of course!

And ran into our long lost cousin, Nick!

We went whale watching!!  We saw whales and California Sea Lions!!

And I learned that I get seasick...

Jack made us breakfast... Biscuits and chocolate gravy.  Yum!

And we went on an AMAZING hike in Palos Verdes!

I had such a great time with Jack!  I think I had more fun than he did,  it was so good to be with my family again.  I love living in California, but I miss my family A LOT.  I'm worried that Eric wont let them come visit anymore because I get so sad when they leave.  (ie: I cried for 5 days straight when my dad left and that is not an exaggeration)  I only cried for a day after Jack left, so I'm getting better, right?  But can you really blame me when I have such a great family that I love so much?  I didn't think so.

Buenas noches

Did you know that I lived in Spain for a little while?  Did you know that I loved it there and saw lots of cool things? And had lots of unbelievable experiences?  If you know me at all, you probably knew all of that.  It's hard for me not to talk about it. 

Did you also know that I went with one of my best friends?  And that she made the trip so much better?   Well it's true. We traveled the world together. And now we both live (with the hubbys) in another one of the world's most exciting cities.  Friday night's girls' night turned into a path down memory lane and we relived some of Euro trip memories.

First we went to the LACMA.  Modern art isn't really our thing, but we got to see some of the exhibits that were in Europe with us.

And then we ate Spanish food at a restaurant called Little Spain...

And just in case you wanted to see more photos from our adventures...

Here we are drinking from the "fountain of marriage"... It worked for us!  We married our men just one week apart from each other in the Denver Temple!

Portugal, again... representing the CO!

Needless to say, we had a blast. 

Oh, and please ignore my orange hair and chubby face in the Spain pictures.
