We're in that limbo part of the seasons, summer is on its way out and fall is on the way in. Its not as hot out but not cool enough to really need the fall clothes least for us California living peoples anyway. i don't know what's going on with the rest of you.
As glad as i am that it is cooling off, i've been procrastinating this particular blog entry....but i need to do it because i promised i would. This is the blog with the pictures of the end of our summer :) This is the Forks/Twilight trip, Oregon, and some from our first week or so of being in Sacramento.
So, drum roll please, here are pictures!
I know you've all read Twilight, weather you admit it or not. Its a craze, and some people are nuts about it, so before we left Washington we made a point to see the sights so we can at least say we didn't miss the opportunity.
We started in Port Angeles

Then started driving through the mountains and around the lakes

i can never get s straight face from him. he's always making funny faces when i take his picture

not the best picture of me, but he likes to tell me that he's taking the picture at the last second

FORKS! not a lot of people live there
p.s. notice the weather....overcast and rainy. perfect vampire weather.

There were groups of people taking pictures here

Bella's truck. Sweet right??
they put some lame pictures in the windows, i think it would have been better if they hadn't

This is husbands "i'm only here because my wife made me" face...

This picture speaks for itself... Where was that in the books??
i wonder if it works....

Bella's house.
I think it was the only house in town that fit the description with the windows, but there were no woods close by

They reserved a parking spot for "Dr. Cullen" in the hospital parking lot

You can read the sign.

The parking lot where Edward exposed his powers to save Bella...

The door to the Police Department....they had "Chief Swan's" uniform hanging in a display case, but i couldn't get a good picture of it.

This is supposed to be the Cullin's home....but its right in the middle of town right next to the Police Station. I think it was the only large house in town because its really a B&B.
(sorry its so blurry. i didn't realize it when i took the pic.)

There was a message on the porch for all the Twilight fans from "Esme"

After all the Twilight sight seeing we looked at a few other sights...

you can see through the middle of it. That's Husband :]

I made a new friend

We're really good friends

He had to run back to the car to get his sunglasses for this picture...

This is what the forests look like when the vampires are running at super speed

When we were driving down to California, we decided to stop for a few days in Florance Oregon where we had originally planed to go for our honeymoon. But when we moved the wedding date up there weren't any beach houses available for the dates any more. We still wanted to check it out and maybe do some of the things we had planned.

Awww. What a sweet guy.
John ♥'s Cassie

We went to the beach in the rain

The water was F-R-E-E-Z-I-N-G.
This is me anticipating the water about to wash over my feet...

This is when the ice water got to me....
probably one of the worst pictures of me in the world.

He likes being a photographer :]

We were supposed to go Sandboarding while we were there, but the rain had followed us down the coast and ruined the sand for us that day. We'll go again one day though

The next week after we got to Sacramento, before we even started unpacking, we went to do a little sight seeing with some of john's friends from school. We didn't have any other ideas, so we checked out the capitol building

Husband had to have a picture with Governor Schwarzenegger's bear outside his office

aka John
aka Governor Schwarzenegger's Plain Clothes Secret Body Guard...
i think the sunglasses give him away ;]

After that we got some lunch. We love Mr's Pickle's

Mr. Pickle!!

We made a new friend

One of the down sides to having the movers pack all your stuff up for you, they wrap absolutely EVERYTHING in paper.

We didn't even unpack that much either. We left most of our things in the boxes and just pulled out a few things for until we find a house.

I hope you enjoyed :]]
We're enjoying California so far. Lots of things going on, and yet nothing really note worthy. We'll keep you updated
