Family and Summer Time Fun
My family came down from Arizona to visit us last weekend!! I was really glad to see them! They sure had a busy schedule and I'm glad they took the time to come and see us! The weekend did not go exactly as I had hoped but we still had a good time!
On Sunday we went to San Francisco! We stopped at the Golden Gate Bridge and then went to the park to have a picnic. It was such a nice park! I really loved it!! After that we went down the windy street and then drove over to Pier 39 to stroll around the shops and look out at the ocean. It was pretty fun, even though it was super windy that day!! That evening we played Rock Band with my sisters and had a blast. The end of the evening did not go very well, but the rest of the day was great!
On Monday we went to Old Sacramento and strolled the boardwalk. We went into some fun shops and had a good time looking around. We ate lunch at In 'N Out which was, of course, fabulous!! After that we went and played some arcade games! We had a blast and won 601 tickets total! We got our prizes and then Kira, Jon, and I went on the Scandia Screamer!! It was really fun, but dumb that we weren't allowed to scream.... on the screamer.... lol! We then went home and had some dinner and played some games and watched The Office! It was nice.
On Tuesday we went to Six Flags!! We had such a great time and went on tons of roller coasters! We also got a flash pass so we didn't have to wait in line! It was SO great! We also got stuck on one of the roller coasters and I got scared, but we didn't die so it was okay. Haha. It was a nice day, not too hot, and it was nice to have a break.
On Wednesday Jon went back to work since my parents were no longer there. They started selling early so they could take a mid afternoon break to go indoor surfing! Some of the wives, including me, went to watch them. It was really funny to watch. A few the guys were pretty good, but the majority of them didn't do very well, they sure had fun though! Jon hurt his shoulder a bit, so that kinda sucked, but it isn't too bad! We also had a baby shower for Misty that day! It was so much fun and everyone was so helpful! We had a super good time.
We have been having a fun time! We played Rock Band with Ethan and Misty and plan to play with a bunch of other people too. (Jon got a Wii and Rock Band and a bunch of other Wii games as one of his incentives.) Jon is doing absolutely fabulous when it comes to his sales! I'm really proud of him! He works so hard!
This morning we also bought the plane tickets for our Italy trip!! It was very exciting! We are leaving on December 14th and coming back on January 14th! It is really going to be the trip of a lifetime and we plan to do it right!! We are very excited about it!
