We began our trip after graduation on June 10th and after having lived with our lovely friends, the Smiths for a couple of days.
The first day we only made it to south of Seattle, but the second day we made it all the way to Sonoma, California!
Welcome to Oregon! (don't worry, the passenger took all pictures!)
Welcome to California!
We stayed at a beautiful hotel that was just down from Sonoma Square and just mere miles from wine tasting. Our third day, we took in some wineries and the Muir Woods. It was a gorgeous day and perfect to sit outside and enjoy some sunshine!
The first vineyard was gorgeous - so were the others!
The fourth day we made our way to San Francisco to see the Golden Gate Bridge, Grace Cathedral, Coit Tower, Lombard Street, and China Town.
A Little Trolley Ride
The fifth day we did Fisherman's Wharf and Alcatraz and then headed East through Yosemite National Park.
Seals on the wharf (they smelled bad!)
This is a redo from when I was in San Fran when I was 14!
Kenny is locked up!
Yosemite was BEAUTIFUL!
The sixth day we drove to south of the Grand Canyon.
Then the seventh day we saw the Grand Canyon via helicopter! Kenny surprised me since we didn't have much time to see it! I got to sit in the front with the pilot which was awesome, yet a little unnerving at points! Then we drove on to Sante Fe, NM.
Our view! (More pics, but you will have to come visit me to see them all ;))
The 8th day we drove to Las Vegas, NM to visit with Kenny's aunts and uncles and see where his mother grew up. Then we made our way to Albequerque to see UNM where Mr. and Mrs. Vaughn met and got married!
Uncle Robert, me, Kenny, Aunt Ada, and Uncle Joseph. Aunt Louise took the picture.
The 9th day we drove to Granbury, TX where we stayed with Kenny's grandparents and enjoyed a lovely dinner with the two of them.
Kenny, Papaw, and Ma!
Then on the 10th day we drove to Liberty, TX to see my aunts and uncles and pick up Kenny's truck.
Then FINALLY on the 11th day, we made it to Corpus Christi! It took an extra day to close on the house due to the sod being laid down late, but it has been great to finally be here and begin to get settled!
Getting the keys!
Finally in our new home!
Pictures of the house to come next!
