Our friends, Mike and Andrea, brought their new wakeboarding boat that weekend. We couldn't be happier for them! Andrea and I have been wakeboarding together since we were 7 or 8 years old. We always dreamed of the day we could do these trips together. Now those trips are happening and it feels awesome. This is a picture of us girls and our husbands. I can't wait to watch our families grow!

driving through a redwood
REDWOOD TREE ROOTS!
Our final good bye!
We had the most wonderful time!
This video was at the beach in Carmel. We took a day trip from our Big Sur campground and went up to the Monterey Aquarium. On the way we stopped here. It was so beautiful we couldn't resist. It was the first time in the whole trip that we felt the warmth of the sun. The water was extremely clear! We took a nap, fed the birds and touched the water.
At the third campground called Clear Lake. We were so excited to go to this campsite because it was a Lake. Sadly we got the wors campsite ever...We still had fun :)
After we went in the Lake...
This was also part of the second campground in Big Sur. Very beautiful but also it as very cold!
We went for a hike. We could see a waterfall fall on to the beach. I really wanted to get down to the beach because of how beautiful it was but sadly we weren't able to.
Bryan not willing to do a video interview :) This was on a different part of the hike.
We are lucky to have two honeymoon's planned. Our first honeymoon adventure was a trip up the coast to the redwoods.We did this trip right after the wedding! It was the perfect getaway trip. We had never gone camping just the two of us so we were learned a ton about each other on this trip...The trip was 7 days totaly. We went to Solvang, Napa, Big Sur, Pismo Beach, Carmel, Monterey aquarium, Winchester House, Clear Lake, and the Redwoods. The trip was filled with normal honeymoon activites, camp fires, beer, reading harry potter book 7, sexy time, wine, hikes, rope swings and cribbage matches. Our second honeymoon is going to be to New Zealand. That trip starts on Dec 19th. I'll keep you posted. Below or some G rated videos from our road trip.

My mom was so incredible. So made me a tissue with my new initals engraved in it. She also had sewed my baby ring into it. It was a perfect last touch to my 'something old'. I love you mom
