Safely home, even with all the cops roaming around

I finally made it home!!! After a long drive filled with music, chatting, and yes, my awesome reading skills I have arrived back in the 559 area code. Katie and I always have the best time together in the small confines of a car for extended periods of time. On this particular road trip there are some notable things that I would like to mention.

  1. On the part that I drove during the trip (St. George to Bakersfield) I mastered the cruise control. When I say this I don't just mean I used it, but I mean that I only touched the pedals maybe 10 times because I am awesome.
  2. I ate a Mcchicken and it wasn't a spicy one!!! For some odd reason Provo thought it was a good idea to only have spicy Mcchickens at their Mcdonalds and so when we entered Bakersfield that is the first thing we got. YUM!
  3. Katie and I played the Guess that Song game for a couple hours and I  was pretty good at it! You know the game when you are only given a couple notes at the beginning and you have to guess what song it is, yep we played that for probably 5 hours or so. I think Katie was pretty impressed by my awesome song guessing skills. 
  4. I finished the book I was reading! It's called To Catch A Pirate and although it was a really easy read and the story/characters weren't developed very well I spiced things up when I read out loud for Katie. Katie likes it when I read out loud because I will occasionally do funny voices and I always put emotion/show the punctuation when I read.
  5. Last but not least is that Katie and counted 28, yes that's right 28, of these bad boys:
         Yeah that is a lot to see in a 12 hour period; we were very surprised. We think there was a convict on the run or something and although I say this nonchalantly I'm being completely serious. Outside of Bakersfield they had a vineyard completely surrounded with their guns out and there was even a helicopter. It was slightly cool, but I was a little scared at the same time.
Well friends that is all for today. I have made it home safely and now I am off to spend some time with my great family and some super friends.
So apparently the  event we witnessed was a robbery and high speed chase. Luckily the guy was caught and the police win again! He was responsible for 2 other robberies this past month, so I'm glad they were able to catch him. Another points for the good guys!
