So call me a slacker. I know I haven't posted anything in a while and a number of people have asked me why. Well, July was a very busy month for Adri and I. Between planning a wedding and flying around the country to see people and places, we don't have a whole lot of time to sit in front of a computer and type.
When we went to Alcatraz we were hoping to get night passes, but they were sold out so that didn't happen. But, the place was still cool and still eerie. I wish that we had been there alone with free reign to go where we wanted, but obviously that won't happen.
Apparently this is the first summer in years when the sea lions have been back in San Francisco. I guess they just wanted to see us really bad. I think that both Adri and I wish we could have lounged around like this at some point.
Muir woods was pretty cool and peaceful. I've not seen trees this big before, but I hear the sequoia's are even more impressive.
After two weeks back in Utah to plan and prepare for the wedding we headed out to Michigan to see my parents. Adri has never been east of Colorado. I kept telling her to prepare for the humidity because it is so hot, wet and sticky in Michigan. Fortunately for her, the weather was absolutely perfect the entire time we were there. I don't know how we got so lucky, but I'm not complaining.
My parents enjoyed having us around too, I think. Either that or this is their way of saying they are so weird that we should be running away. Well, I am their child, so this is nothing new to me, and I think I followed in their foot steps a bit.
As you ride around the island (8 total miles), there are rock towers everywhere, so Adri and I decided to add our own.
This is my parents back yard. I miss the foggy mornings like this, and the sounds at night that put you to sleep so nicely.
