Fun Times

Since we tied the knot, we have been able to do some pretty fun things! One of the first things we did was hike to the top of Mission Peaks. It was only a five mile hike but it was straight uphill the whole way. We also ran into a group of cows which scared me!

The View from the top

We were surrounded by fog, it was pretty cool.

Last minute, Terrill decided to participate in our wards pinewood derby. As you can see he four large screws to the top of the piece of wood. He came in second. It was a fun night and great way to get to know our new ward.

Almost every other Friday, Terrill goes int0 the city (San Fransisco) for work. I met him after work and we walked through the city and had soup and bread bowls for dinner. We then rode Bart home. It was a fun date!

We took a trip to visit the giant redwoods in the Santa Cruz mountains. As you can see below, we are standing in front of a giant red wood.

We got this crazy idea to do half dome in the middle of the night during the summer. Well, we have actually done it twice before but we wanted to do it again. The only problem was that we were at a wedding all day and then a reception until 10:00 at night. We were so exhausted, but we went anyways. We made it about 4 miles up and decided we were way to tired and exhausted to keep going. In fact, before we even started the hike we fell asleep in our parked car for 2 hours. So much for half dome, but we still got a beautiful hike in!

This is a pick that Terrill took along the way and I love it!

Starting out in our Apartment

Our apartment suits us just fine. It is a one bedroom one bath apartment in Fremont. We like our neighborhood and our ward is awesome. One thing I love about having a smaller apartment is that it is so easy to clean! It has been a fun adventure starting out our lives together in our first home.

We love that we have a fireplace

Honeymoon in Maui

We spent our honeymoon in Wailea, Maui. It was so much fun! We were right on the beach and had an awesome view. We went swimming in the ocean, snorkeling, hiking, surfing and had dinner at a luau. It was such a fun week, we didn't want to come home!

At the Luau

This is our snorkeling trip to turtle town. It was actually a very cold trip and the water was really choppy. We weren't able to see much fish, but they did serve us lunch and the crew was really friendly. If we came back we aren't sure we would do this tour again

Our hike to a beautiful waterfall, it was definitely worth it!

Our Wedding Day 3-27-09

On March 27, 2009 Terrill and I were sealed in the Oakland temple. It was the best day of our lives! We are grateful to be sealed together for time and all eternity. Our sealing was at 2:00 and following the sealing we had a reception at Castlewood Country Club in Pleasanton, was beautiful.

Highlights of that day include:
  • Getting sealed in the temple
  • Seeing all of our friends and family
  • Taking pictures on the temple grounds
  • Our first dance
  • Enjoying ourselves at a beautiful reception!
