Happy 2 Years of Marriage!

So July 9th (Monday) was Steve and I's anniversary. We went to the Jelly Belly Factory in Fairfield, CA! (Yes, I did plan it, obviously). It was sooo cool! We got to see how Jelly Belly's are made and then we got free samples. They also have this huge downstairs where you can buy all the different flavors and candy they make there. They make candy corn and some sunkist candy at the factory too. You could also buy flops (I restrained myself). They also have a tasting counter where you could try any flavor you wanted, but they only let you try one or two flavors (so sad!).This is me in front of a wall covered in Jelly Belly's with the Jelly Belly guy! I have my paper hat on that they make you wear as you go through the factory. They don't let you take pictures inside the factory, so this is after. This is Steve out front with the big blow up Jelly Belly.

This is Jelly Belly Art! They have tons of these displayed throughout the factory. The two most common are President Reagen (because he used to have Jelly Belly's at the White House because he used to them to quit eith smoking or tobacco, I don't remember which it was) and then Elvis. But they are actually Jelly Belly's. They said how they are made is they paint a picture first and then the same technique for mosaic art is used. They put the Jelly Belly's in a clear glue and put them on the painting.

After the factory, we went to this oil tasting place that was just down the street. We ended up buying some Red Apple Balsamic Vinegar. It is so delicious with a little sweetness! yummy! Then we had an hour couple massage that was just heavenly. Then we ate dinner at Vic Stewart's which is a steak place here in Walnut Creek. It is at the old train station depot and there was a train attached to the building. We actually sat inside the train, the caboose, to eat. Then the seperate train compartments are turned into private dining rooms that would fit like 8 to 10 people. It was awesome, but sadly I forgot my camera. We had a porterhouse steak that was so delicious along with mashed potatoes and asparagus. We finished it off with creme brulee!

I have no pictures of Rebecca...but don't despair, I do have more videos! So click the link and check these out. They are both pretty short. The second one, Rebecca gets up on her toes and this is becoming more and more common. Lots of times when she does this, she sticks her butt up in the air more.

The beginning of her army crawl looks like interpretive dance! I love it!
