Fall Break Trip :)

For fall break this year, my two older sisters (Kristi and Kelly) and me and my mom all got to take a trip to California! It was quite the adventure. The plan was to fly out to Long Beach at 7:30am Thursday morning, spend the day at Seal Beach and then spend the evening at Knott's Berry Farm for the Halloween thing. Then, we were gonna fly back Friday morning. Well...things don't always work out the way you've planned.
We missed out 7:30am flight and were rolled over to fly stand-by to San Diego at 10am. There were exactly enough seats for us to ride stand-by, but two people in front of us bought two tickets, kicking us off the flight. We decided to give it one more try and made it onto the 4:53pm flight to Long Beach. By then, we'd switched our plans to just going to Knott's and flying home in the morning. Well, we landed and my two sisters didn't feel up to going to Knott's. So we decided to switch our plans yet again and use the money we would have used at Knott's to get a nice dinner. Lol, we ended up eating at Chevy's. Yum yum, it was delicious! After dinner, we all wanted to just relax so we went hot tubbing and then went to bed.
The next day, we missed our flight cuz we slept in. So we went to look for the flea market. But (and this is sad to say) we were a little intimidated by the lack of Caucasians so we decided to go elsewhere for our California shopping spree. On the way, we stopped at a park somewhere in Anaheim. There was a life size flighter jet thing made our of cement that we wanted to get our picture with. When climbing off, I wasn't paying attention to the dew on on the plane and slid right off it and landed on my back. Everyone was laughing SO hard, including myself, even though I was in a ton of pain and could not breathe.
We finally found a HUGE shopping center called Fashion Island in the New Port Beach area. So we spent some time there. Afterwards, we went and found the New Port Beach Temple. Oh boy! It was so beautiful! We actually went to the Crystal Cathedral first and both places were very interesting and extremely different. I dunno how to describe it other than it was a really neat experience.
After that, we went to Corona del Mar beach. SO BEAUTIFUL! I wish we could have spent more time there. It was perfect! The water felt amazing, the temperature of the air was great, everything was just perfect. That is now my favorite place on the globe!
Before heading to the airport, we drove along Pacific Coast Highway for a perfect ocean view for miles and ate dinner at In n Out Burger. :) We flew back to SLC and then waited a few hours for my dad, a TSA officer (aka a security worker at the airport) to get off work so we could ride home with him.
All in all, it was an amazing trip, even though it was shorter than I would have liked. :)

New Hobby

So, I have been really bored at school lately and decided that I wanted to get into some new activities and such. So, I've always loved taking pictures, specifically of people, and so I decided to have my own little photo shoot. Stevie graciously agreed to be my model. Heehee! Some of the pictures turned out really good, while others were kinda not so great. What do you think?
