Trip to San Francisco

Kyle and I decided to take a road trip to San Francisco the end of February. We got there and it was raining so we decided to stay in the hotel and not get soaked. The next morning was our activity day and the rain had cleared and it was beautiful weather. First we walked around the ports found breakfast at a cute little cafe then started our adventure to Alcatraz.

Here is Alcatraz Island that we got to tour. It was amazing and kinda scary at some points.

(Below) Kyle is in the solitary cell. He looks scared huh?... He is listening to the tour and how they just closed the door and only let the prisoners out once a week to shower. Crazy!!

After Alcatraz we had a bite to eat and headed to the Aquarium of the Bay. Here is Kyle making friends with the star fish at the aquarim of the bay.

Amazing colorful starfish!

Super fun time at the aquarium. There was a place at the end that you could touch the sting rays and Kyle was having a blast. As for me, I was just fine taking the pictures.

And of course our trip would not be complete without the famous trolly car ride up and down the hills of San Francisco. They were so fun but stopped in the middle of the street and was kinda scary but still fun. We rode these to China town and to our night fun watching the play Wicked.

Here is Kyle in China town with his monkey friends. Hear no evil, See no evil, Speak no evil

This was the highlight of my vacation. Kyle got us tickets to see Wicked at the theatre. It was so amazing and just as good if not better the second time around. I recommend it to anyone!!

On our way home we went to the famous Golden Gate Bridge. It was amazing to see and get to walk across. I loved the background of it for our pictures.

Valentine's Day!!

So, this is our first Valentine's Day as a married couple. We took a trip to Salt Lake City where we went to the temple, stayed in a wonderful Marriot thanks to Kyle's work and then a nice dinner at amazing Tucanos. It was a wonderful day that we were able to spend together and I thank my wonderful husband for planning it all. I love you babe!
Here are some pics from the dinner....
