Honeymoon- Mt. RAINier: true to its name..

Jake here. We decided it was time to repent of our blog-neglecting sin and play some catch-up. We had an awesome honeymoon. I'd say it fit us rather well. Most couples spend a week on a beach somewhere where they don't speak your language, or go on a cruise and stuff their faces. We went hiking on Mt. Ranier. Ok, so we didn't sleep in a tent or survive off of hobo dinners and granola...I thought about it as I was planning it, but decided that I wanted to STAY married after the honeymoon (everybody's nodding their heads right now..or shaking them..) And yes, despite any fears Ellisha may have had in my picking out a good spot, we had the perfect place. We stayed in a guesthouse in the woods, right outside the Nisqually entrance and about 30 min from Paradise (where you start hiking). It came complete with kitchen (breakfast-stocked fridge:), living room, fireplace, private hot tub, private sauna, and bbq. We loved it.

Our first hike turned out to be our first real test in marriage. It was misting the whole time, so by the time we got back down to our car, we were soaking wet, hungry and ready to be warm again. This was about the time I realized I didn't have the keys. They were dangling inside the ignition of our locked car. Two hours later we were on our way home, twice as cold and wet, but still married :).

Here are pictures (currently without captions).  For more, check out my facebook

Just Married

Jake and I have been married for almost a month! Wahoo! We're practically professionals at this whole marriage thing (just kidding).  But we really are loving it out here and having tons of fun with each other.  I finally got to it and went through all these pictures.  These are only the ones up until we left the temple.  I still have to post pictures from the luncheon and reception, and I really will do it sooner than later.  I put a lot up here, so if you get bored I'm sorry. I loved going through them though, that's probably why I put so many up.    

My hair was so lovely when we started.  Don't know why we didn't just keep it the way it was.  I have no idea why this picture went to the side, but I can't get it to move.  I'm not very good with this whole blog thing yet.
Everyone wanted to help.

First ones to breakfast! We see who cares most about food.

Here they come!

Jake is giving Dad the face of, "uhh, she's mine now."

I like Dallin in this picture



The alligator was much more entertaining.

I know this is the back of Sarah's head, but she was taking care of Wendy wen we were taking family pictures.  I had to show that she was there. 

Hanna this picture is for you

Mmmm mmm good.

I got tired of wearing it, so Jake tried it out.  I thought it looked rather dashing.
