This is my husband, aren't you jealous??? hahaha, well here I am, updating after FOREVER of not updating. Sorry! So last weekend, 3/19-3/22, Rob was able to go to Long Beach, CA (I joined friday night) for a National Aeronautics and Astronautics Conference. He is a member of AIAA (The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics). He originally signed up through BYU and then got to go to this pretty cool convention, all expenses paid, with wife invitation :) So he headed up with 7 others from his school in a big van on Thursday morning at 6. Poor guy, haha. Then went to some conventions that had some really big words and long explenations, that if you are interested you can ask him because I can't remember at all... But he thought it was pretty cool. I was able to join him by Flying JetBlue (Thanks Mom!) and got in Friday night about 8:30. We stayed at the Marriott right next to the airport, really really nice place btw.
So Saturday came and we decided we wanted to go out and do something. After about an hour of trying to figure out wat ot do, we got on the bus and headed to Long Beach Downtown. We were just hoping we got on the right bus haha.
As you can see, we made it okay :) We found this really cute little strip mall (behind Rob) and that led us to the Aquarium and Queen Mary.
You can see in inbetween us in the distance, apparently Queen Mary gave it to us because she wanted a NEW vacation ship, apparently this one wasn't big enough or goo enough!!!!
SO then we went to the Aquarium, we decided that we needed to go somewhere and spend some money... ouch... but well it's pretty cool :)We got to touch GIANT Stingray, see the sharks, the jelly fish, and the playful seals. It was fun, Rob was a little disapionted because he thought it was Sea World, but I broke the news to him and then he understood why he couldn't find REALLY big fish.
Over all it was a really fun, almost free, mini vacation :) We drove back in that aweful van on Sunday and arrived about 7:30pm... I am proud to say that compared to who Rob went with, Rob is like a Jock hahaha, those guys were beyond the nerd scale! I mean one of them wears goggles when he bike rides through campus so that he doesn't get stuff in his eyes hahaha, sorry but that was really funny to me :)
