Almost two years ago (April 2009), Jason got home from his mission. We were excited to see each other, and I was able to come down to California between winter and spring semesters, just a couple weeks after he got home. It was a great couple days and encompassed a lot of really important and awesome events (like holding hands for the first time since high school, and our first kiss ). (Which makes me smile just thinking about it). Anyway, it was awesome.
One of the fun things we did that weekend was go to the park and have a picnic. We both like nature, and we both like food, and we both like each other, so it was pretty much a great outing. Jason wanted to take pictures while we were there, so we did! I'm really glad we have them now.
Aw, didn't we make such a good couple? And we weren't even officially dating yet! (That happened the next night over a game of Super Smash Brothers. Hehehe.)
Also, we saw these random ducks, really crazy looking, that I found out a year later in my ornithology class were really Chinese ducks that weren't native to the area. They're called Mandarin ducks and my teacher said they must have got loose at some point and started breeding. Random, huh?
Well, this year during Christmas break we went on another picnic to the park. We took our handy-dandy picnic basket and a blanket and tons of food and even some frisbees. We found a nice quiet spot on the edge of the lake, and ate our sandwiches while enjoying each others company and watching all the ducks again.
And then...we took more pictures.
And, of course, we took them in a tree. (Me and Jason's natural habitat.)
Here's to many more happy memories to come. :)
