Goodbye San Francisco

Well, if you haven't heard...we are moving to Utah this week! Jaron got wind of a job from his cousin and so he applied for it. At first we didn't think we were interested, but the more we learned, the more Jaron really wanted it. We were so excited when he got it. He will be working for a company that builds the steel part of a building. So we are leaving on Thursday and heading to Utah. We are so excited for this new chapter in our lives, but we are sad to close our California chapter. We have really had a lot of fun here. We have done a ton of sightseeing. We both commented the other day we feel like we have been on a vacation for a year because we live in a vacation spot. There is always something to do! To say goodbye to the bay area, we spent the day in San Francisco. Here are a few pictures from our day. Enjoy...
We started the day by taking a tour of Alcatraz Island. It was a beautiful day.
We threatened the kids that we would lock them up if they weren't good!
Jaron and Clark on the tour.
The San Francisco skyline from Alcatraz. Notice the steep streets going up the hill in San Francisco.
Clark enjoying the sunshine and green grass.
Jaron touring the outside section of Alcatraz.
The Golden Gate bridge from Alcatraz.

We ended our fun day with clam chowder in sourdough bread bowls. We then took a trolley to the train station. It was a wonderful day! We have loved living here and will look back with fond memories!
