Best Week Ever

Last week was pretty much the best week ever. Of this year at least. It was the best week ever for two reasons: California and MuteMath.

First, California. A friend of Scott's decided it would be brilliant to get married in Yosemite National Park (which it was) and seeing as in order to get to Yosemite, one has to fly into San Francisco, we decided to spend some time there as well. This was especially exciting because 1. It was Scott's first plane ride and 2. It was the first time I've ever been west of ... IL. It's not like I haven't been outside of Illinois. I've been east a few times and to Wisconsin about a thousand. Just not west.

So anyway, San Francisco was fabulous. On the first day we walked across the Golden Gate Bridge.

On the second day we saw a few hundred sea lions.

And took a one hour cruise around the bay where we saw Alcatraz.

Then we went on a cable car up a really steep hill.

The third day it rained and we got wet, but we went to the California Academy of Sciences which had some cool animals including a bunch of butterflies.

The fourth day was our last day in San Francisco and we saw a bunch of random things we weren't able to see earlier in the week like ...

The Transamerica Pyramid

The Full House houses

And the city at night from the top of a painfully tall hill.

Then we moved on to Yosemite for a couple days. We hiked and went to the wedding and hiked some more and saw some waterfalls. It was basically amazing and the weather was perfect.

Finally, to top it all off, we went to an amazing MuteMath concert on Sunday night. Now, MuteMath never fails to entertain but this concert was especially crazy on account of the drummer and his antics:
