Goodbye, California

This last month we've been in California spending time with family.  It's been really fun, and great to visit with everyone!

Unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures of the Jackson {my mum's side} clan, but I did get some pictures of when we spent time with the Jensen side of the family.

 8 of the 12 cousins!

One day, we decided to drive up to Yosemite National Park since it was only about two hours away.  It was so beautiful!  I was so glad we could spend time together looking at God's creation.  (Minus the time we spent riding the stinky shuttle with the grumpy driver lady honking the whole time and complaining about traffic having to stop for pedestrians crossing the road...and making terrifying sounds over the mic to stop a baby from crying. But that's another story...)

Everything was massive! 

It was a good day. :)

Right now, we're on our way to Tennessee to go to Polishing the Pulpit.  I'm really excited about going, I've heard alot of good things about it!

Day in San Francisco

Sunday before last, we went to San Francisco to visit a couple of our supporting congregations and stay with Dad's sister and her family.  Monday we went to the city and had a fun family day!

 We spent our day at Fisherman's Wharf walking around and looking in shops

 This was at lunchtime.  We watched for a little bit while this guy cooked crabs then broke them up

There were lots of places to choose from!  

We looked in the Hard Rock!  We came out pretty quickly though, because things were so expensive...but we did get our picture in front of it!

**It was a fun day**

Oh the things we will do, you and I!

Time for an update!  Things have been going really well over here.  We're in California staying with Mom's parents right now, and it's been really nice to spend time with them.  The boys and I spent the night at Uncle Jared and Aunt Sandy's with Nicholas and Matthew a few nights ago, and last night I spent the night at Jason and Jill's with the girls.  It was fun!  They're all really sweet. :)

Mum's been working on her lessons for a ladies' day she's doing here Saturday, and I've been working on a little talk I'm going to give about our work and my perspective on it.  I'm really excited to hearing Mom's lesson!

The boys and I have been trying to go running every day.  I really like to run!  If I had a good place to run at home, I'd get a training schedule to build up my endurance.  It's amazing how fatty all the foods are here - it's easy to forget!  Anyway, traveling around in the car, and sitting most of the time doesn't do too much to make you feel great.

Last week we went to San Francisco to visit a couple congregations that support us, then on Monday we walked around the city.  It was really nice to have a family day!

Next week we'll go up to Angel's Camp and spend a week or so with Dad's side of the family, so that should be fun.

I've talked to Julia a couple times, and she and Lee are doing really well.  They've been getting settled in, and she's been doing all sorts of wifey things. :)

Hope everyone is having a great week!

I just thought it would be really cool to mention that I've been getting hits from Brazil, and today from France! {I really want to visit France one day...}
Merci bien!
