Our California Vacation!

WARNING: This is an incredibly long post. We won't be offended if you only look at the pictures :-)

Tuesday, April 27th, we picked up Blake in Salt Lake at 6am to drive to Vacaville after only 2 hours of sleep the night before. While the boys slept I drove through Nevada (the entire state was one big sandstorm...the whole state) and California (which was a huge snowstorm). Needless to say, I was quite tired when we finally arrived at our destination.

In Vacaville, we took baby Grant to the Jelly Belly Factory. He loved all the free samples!

After 2 days there we drove to San Jose, where I had my first encounter with the Pacific Ocean. I definitely prefer the warmer FL beaches.

Sara and Steve's wedding was wonderful. We're so glad we were able to be there to celebrate with them.

After the wedding, we spent a couple days in San Francisco.

love, Brad & Courtney
