A Day in Old Town Fair Oaks

A fun day in Fair Oaks Villages
Brandon and I went to old town Fair Oaks and ate at the Sunflower Cafe where I quickly made friends with a rooster. Yup true bosom buddies. Brandon was jealous.

After, we went and looked at the great view over looking the American River. It was a long way down. We found a tree where the ground had fallen away but the roots were still firmly attached to what was left.

Woahh, steady, steady...dunt da da

This is quite cozy...a perfect place for a bird nest.


We found a tree with a hollow center and inside found beer bottles and lots of creepy stuff.


Brandon has spotted his prey and is about to attack.

I caught him falling in mid-air


This is the beautiful view and you can see the tree that the earth has fallen away from in the background.

boys will be boys

The guns, the excitment, the unlimited amunition! I was caged inside the octagon and I had to fight or flight. I'm not one for flighting. Perhaps i was a little harsh on my opponent, but he started it!

My 1st Attempt at Making Homemade Bread

This is the recipe that I used for my first homemade bread. I got it from my mom. Sunday the lesson in Relief Society was on Homemaking. Brandon always wanted me to make bread, so I took this as a little push and finally bought the ingrediants that I needed to make it from scratch. It wasn't that difficult...but it took patience. The recipe that my mom gave me made 4 loaves...so I had to figure out a 1/4 of that so I wasn't over loaded with bread.
So far so good. Now I have to wait a while so the dough can rise. This was 100% whole wheat. My mother is the ultimate Molly Mormon so growing up I was able to watch and learn from her. B/c of her I was more comfortable doing this on my own...needless to say I did call her up a few times to double check on some things.
The dough is getting BIGGER!!!

Next step...

Final product...not too bad I would say. It tasted good to. Well I can check that off my list of things to attempt. Now all I have to do is PERFECT it.

Billion Beach Family Trip

This was our sleeping arrangment the last night in Dillion Beach. We gave up the biggest room to my parents. Brandon and I slept on a bed that pulls out from the wall. It was cool b/c I never slept on that type of bed before. We had to rearrange all of the furniture in the room to make room for the bed. Just got to love family trips.
While on the beach we saw a baby seal that came on shore. It was like an attraction b/c it brought so many people over. We were able to get pretty dang close to the seal. It didn't seem to mind people. Which could be a good thing or a bad thing. I really wanted to touch it...but I didn't.

The waves at Dillion Beach were so big and out of control that they washed Brandon to shore. Brandon had a good workout just trying to get far enough out to ride the waves in. The water was really cold. Thank goodness for a wet suit.

The beach house we stayed in was really close to the rocks. So when the tide was down we went out and checked out the sea life. It was really nifty. There was a lot of starfish and crabs.


We spent a good amount of time in the sand dunes. It was really exhausting after a while. I guess you could say it was part of our workout for the day. There was a lot of mist and fog...which gave the beach a really cool mysterious effect.

We went to the Sac Zoo for Tiani's B day in May

This was Brandon's favorite animal.

This is the animals favorite human.

Tiani found how to get this picture without any cage bars in it.


One of these animals is caged. Is she looking in at the tiger, or is the tiger looking in at her?



Mother, what's a looong neck?
