Last minute adventures

Sunday night at 11:00, I decided El Dorado Hills and San Francisco sounded a lot better than Provo. So I changed my flight and off I went.

I've never been further north in California than LA. I was amazed by all of the different climates there. We went for a drive to the snow, I was wearing flats so this is about as far into the snow we went.

We went exploring and found this old gold mine, again I had NO idea that it was so green in Sacramento. Beautiful!
On Tuesday we spent the afternoon in San Francisco! I've never been here before, and it was such an adventure. I've never seen that many homeless people in my life. I'm happy I got to go when it was decorated for Christmas in Union Square.

It was a little bit wet and rainy, but combine a little rain with walking all day and you get me with soaked hair. We hung in there till the sun went down but then it just got super cold.

This is a park in Jonathan's neighborhood, look at that view! And that grass! I learned something about this kiddo. He is 100% in love with his dog. I've never seen him as happy as he was when he would play with her.

Jonjon working on his photography skills.

Self portrait fail :) Too much zoom!

Again, the boy with his dog. So happy.

After a fun couple days, the journey home began. After 12 hours, 3 flight delays, getting stuck in the snow once I got to Provo, and calling a tow truck at 3 in the morning, I finally made it home. What a day. I had such a fun Christmas in Arizona, a great adventure in California, but it's always nice to come sleep in my own bed and get back to the grind.

Willi, you are always taking fun trips and I don't know how you find the time! Work, school, and fun all at the same time? But really it looks like you had a great time but we're glad to have you back in Utah. And I know I've said it before but I'll say it again, I wish you would have a fashion blog because you are always looking so dang cute and I want to know where you find your clothes!
