Brian has wanted a new truck for as long as I have known him. We have been saving for the past couple of years in order to buy this for him. Brian has been working so hard at his sales and has been saving all his commission. It has finally paid off. He was supposed to get it for a graduation present, but with all the good deals that have been going on lately at the dealerships, we couldn't pass it up. I am excited to use it this summer when we go four wheeling. It will be so much easier to have one four wheeler in the bed of the truck and one on the trailer. Last year we had to always go riding with someone else because we had to lift the four wheelers onto the trailer. Our trailer was really only made for one ATV, but since I have the best husband in the world who bought me my own four wheeler, we had to do some arrangements to tow them both. Since I am a huge wimp, and can't lift the four wheeler, we usually had to coordinate schedules with one of Brian's friends. It will be easy to load the four wheelers now. Now we can go when ever we want! Yay. My favorite part about this new truck: 1. It only had 20 miles on it when we bought it. How cool is that? 2. We got a super good deal on it. 3. The interior is heaven and I can't get enough of the voice activated controls. The heated and cooled seats are nice so your bum will never be too cold or too hot:) 4. It makes my hubby happy! He totally deserves it!

Yes, it was a fabulous vacation. My cousin Suzie was getting married last weekend and we decided to take a "girls only" trip to California. I went with my Mom, my sis, and my sis-in-law. We had the absolute best time! We flew in Thursday and conquered Californian traffic with our best friend "Garmin". Even though she spoke with an English accent and would say things like, "bear right", we still loved her! Do not attempt to tour your way around California without one of these. This thing saved our butts. We really don't know what traffic is here in Utah. I will take my I-15 traffic anyday. California traffic was NUTS! It did not matter what time of day it was, traffic was RIDICULOUS! Remind me to never move there.
If I would have known these little guys existed, I would have never done that! GROSS!
Saturday was a pretty cold day, but we toughed it out and drove to San Jose to see the Winchester House. It was a crazy house. For those of you that have never heard of it, it is this huge mansion that a woman designed to confuse the spirits in her house. To me it just looked like crappy carpentry, but if there were ghosts in that house, I don't know how they found their way around. There were doorways that led to nothing, stairs that went into the ceiling. The woman was nuts. The woman did have taste though. I absolutely loved the walls and hardware throughout the house.
Our final stops of our vacation led us to Fisherman's Wharf and Lombard St. Fisherman's wharf was ok, but it smelled a little fishy. Imagine that!

Here are some other "interesting" photos I came accross while searching for the other ones. I think "interesting" sums it up....
