last week our friends, jake & ashley told us they were going to newbury park, 
california (nick's hometown) for a quick friday-sunday trip and asked if we wanted to join them.
the incoming swell convinced nick.
the thought of being warm convinced me.

there was about as much driving as there was vacationing but it was worth it one hundred percent.
it was sooo nice to be there and visit with some of nick's oldest friends, the boys got in a bit of surfing, we ate some real good donuts & mexican food - two very important things utah lacks, aaaand (drumroll please) i even managed to get a tan line!

proof :)
