Catching up and a Yuma wedding

I am sorry I haven't blogged in so long.   A lot has happened since my last post.  I finished this semester with A's and am now enjoying summer.  Michael is back from training and we are both so happy he is home.  He has been working long hours, but that is no change from his normal routine.  
We are planning a trip to Utah this summer, in July.  We are still waiting to get approval from the military.  We are really excited to see friends and family!  Ok, now you are up to speed.  
So Yuma, AZ is the hottest place on earth.  That is a made up fact but when you are there in June and you feel like you are trapped in an oven it doesn't feel so made up.  Michael and I went to Yuma for a wedding.  One of the marines that Michael works with was getting married and we went to support.   The drive is a little less than 3 hours so it wasn't a huge deal.   We drove down Friday, went to dinner, saw the movie "After Earth" and got dessert.  Typical date night.  The movie was really good!  Lets be clear,  I think that every movie I see is good, I possibly thought Labyrinth was good when  I first saw it, so don't look into my critique too closely.  On Saturday we checked out of our hotel and had a few hours to kill before the wedding so we went to see another movie.  Honestly there isn't a whole lot to do in Yuma and when it is literally 108F outside the last thing you want to do is wander around window shopping or trying to kill time.  So we went to see "Now you see me"  that movie was also really good.  It was especially awesome because the theatre was air conditioned and it didn't feel like the sun was coming in for a landing on top of your head.  
The wedding was nice, we had dinner, watched the couple dance, had some cake, typical wedding reception stuff.  We drove home that night and were happy to be back in California.  Thank goodness for the ocean, keeping us cool!  It was a really fun, short vacation.   

Was not exaggerating about the 108F

These were our "try and not melt in the heat" activities

  1. Ugh that reminds me of when Mark and I went to Las Vegas before coming to see you guys last summer. It got to be about 110 degrees. Yucky! I'm glad you guys got to take a little road trip. :D
