Our Day in Oakland

As soon as I was done with seminary this morning, we headed down to Oakland to go to the temple. It usually takes between two and two and a half hours to drive down there, depending on traffic. The drive down was gorgeous! There was fog blanketing the entire valley, and that mixed with the colorful foilage was just breathtaking. There were vineyards and trees and entire hillsides in perfect autumn bloom!

By early afternoon, the sun was shining and the sky was a beautiful blue. We couldn't leave without taking some photos. Here's one of my very handsome husband:

Isn't he SO HANDSOME?!!

Before heading back home, we were able to meet up with our good friends, Allison and Pedro, to have lunch at Zachary's. Pizza that's so good it can't be categorized with what is traditionally defined as "pizza." Does that make any sense? Well, just take my word for it... and try it if you ever get the chance.

The entire day was completely wonderful! We ended up spending most of the time in the car, driving to and from... but, we had so much fun talking and laughing! I absolutely loved our day together! It's a blessing that we have flexible schedules to get away in the middle of the week together. It was a terrific day... just what we needed!

The Oakland Temple used to be our temple, until they built the Seattle Temple. And then finally the Portland Temple. In any case I have fond memories.

Looks like fun.

Same here. I love to look out over the bay from the parking lot, it's so beautiful!

I think I need a day like that. :)

Looks like it was a great trip! I love taking short road trips with Dustyn. I love that we can talk and talk and not even notice that the radio is not on. It's so great to have a husband and a best friend.

compulsive writer, we *loved* the Portland temple when we lived there. The dark cherry wood - so beautiful!

mindy, yeah that view never gets old! :)

kamie, I hear ya there! I love the same things about my relationship with Marc. Is the Manti temple your temple?

If you lived by us, you would only be five minutes from the Temple.

Emi, I'm so glad you posted! I wish we lived 5 minutes from a temple! It was so great to see you last week! :)
