you know what place always stays awesome? DISNEYLAND!!

And it's even better to go with a crew of crazy girls.

The second our good friend, Jill, announced that she was moving away and driving across the country, the second thought (after "damn it!") was "road trip to Disneyland!"

It was so fun running to rides like crazy people, discussing when our next churro stop would be! It was a blast...and a great send off for our wonderful friend.

We'll miss you Jilly, but we'll see you soon!

Zion and Bryce National Parks

After attending the wedding in Las Vegas, Matt and I drove to Zion National park for 5 nights of camping.

The place was beautiful and very serene. We had an awesome campsite and a fantastic time exploring the Canyon. The best hike of all was Angel's Landing. Here I am at the top after a bit of a scary climb up that involved chain to cling on to (which I stuck on to like white on rice!).

We also day-tripped to Bryce Canyon...where I heard you just had to see to believe...and it lived up to my high expectations. The place was amazing. I can definitely see making another trip out there and going to the Grand Canyon, too. Sometimes the chance to be out in nature and see some of these things makes me realize how spectacular the world is!

Tamara and Justin's Wedding

Isn't it a fantastic feeling when you see an old friend so happy! Well, I had the pleasure of seeing my oldest and dearest friend get married and it all happened on my birthday!

Tamara and Justin tied the knot at the chapel at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. Then the 30 or so guests went up to the 36th floor of the hotel to celebrate in the penthouse suite. It was hard to keep our eyes off of the fountains below...but they made sure to make their entrance between shows!

Congratulations to Tam and Justin! Here's to many years of happiness!
