Super excited!

Awesome day today.  We went to the local swap meet to browse and found a little taste of Honduras.  One of the stands was selling fruits that we tried while we were down there,  including the rotten brown fruit,  which I now know is called mami. And. ... they had guanabana! Our favorite!

That is all.

The Zoo!

The past couple of weeks have been interesting. Zach has been really sick from a kidney stone and hasn't been able to work at all. Tomorrow he is having outpatient surgery to get rid of it. Hoping all goes well. Thankfully he isn't getting cut open. They are going to stick a laser in him and blast it to pieces. At least, that's the plan. If that doesn't work, he will have to schedule another procedure. Fun fun.

Next month we are going out to Colorado for the District Convention at the new Assembly Hall. Super Excited!

Last week, our niece had a field trip to the zoo with her school, so I tagged along. Yay pictures of animals! (Kids count as animals too, right?)

Happy 5th Anniversary to Us!

It's only been a busy couple of months. Let's see if I can remember everything....

Well, not off to a good start. I'm drawing a blank on February. So we will start with the Memorial. Our hall had clean up day, and we got to paint the sign and the gates. This was only slightly frightening since I kept having to paint over black widows and I was pretty sure they were going to attack me. However, I escaped unharmed. Here's some pictures.

We signed up to auxiliary pioneer in March and April. I spent two weeks with my grandparents during the campaign and got to work rural driving territories, which was fun. Haven't done that in ages. 
There were 416 in attendance at our Memorial. It was standing room only.

This last weekend was our 5th anniversary. Zach surprised me with a trip to Beverly Hills, which we've never been to. We stayed at a nice hotel, did some sight seeing, and got to see my dream car in real life. Pictures!

View from hotel room. You can see the Hollywood sign in the distance.

 Dinner. The bread came with three different dips. It was fancy.

 The Beverly Center parking lot. This is exciting because in the movie Volcano, one of my favorites, the building gets blown up. 

So that's what's been going on with us lately. I think some other stuff happened, but I can't remember anything else. 

We still don't really have plans of any sort right now. We now know we will be staying here in California until at least August, but everything else remains to be seen. In the meantime, we're just doing what we can and we're sure it'll get figured out soon. 

Ok bye!
