We finally got married on Friday November 16th 2012!!! We both agree that it was the best day of our lives. Everything was better than I could have ever imagined. The temple, family, friends, the weather, the reception, the decorations, the food, the cake- everything was perfect. Can’t wait to get all the pictures back!!
We spent our wedding night at the Grand America (best hotel ever) and Saturday morning we had Kneaders famous french toast before starting the drive to San Diego. We drove half way and stopped in Vegas at the Hilton Grand Vacations Club. I’m not a huge fan of the strip so we stayed in, ordered pizza and watched the Oregon vs. Stanford football game. (We LOVE football!)
Sunday we drove of the rest of the way to San Diego. Our first stop was Walmart for groceries for our beach shack. Our Beach Shack was awesome!! It was only 3 blocks from Mission Beach and was just so cute. Sunday night we went to Old Town San Diego for Mexican Food by the fire and shopping.
Tuesday we slept in and then headed to La Jolla cove to go ocean Kayaking. This was SO much fun! The seals were swimming all around us and were sometimes a little too close for comfort. After kayaking all around the cove we attempted to “kayak surf” (or ride the wave into shore while still in the kayak). The first time we were successful but the second time we flipped- we love these kind of adventures. Then we went on a beautiful scenic drive, had lunch at In-n-Out Burger and watched the sunset on the beach. Tuesday night we decided to go to the San Diego Temple and it was AMAZING!
Wednesday morning we went on an awesome run/hike. We ran until we hit the surf break which is like a pier made out of rocks and then we hiked 1/2 a mile over the rocks to the end. It was an unexpected adventure and we both had a lot of fun.
Thursday was the most different Thanksgiving both Scott and I have ever had and we loved it. We watched the parade and some football. Made cinnamon rolls on the stove since there wasn’t a rack in the oven, went on a long walk along the beach and then we were crazy and got in the freezing cold ocean! Even though it was so cold we had a ton of fun.
