SO my awesome husband graduated from the Police Academy on December 4th! Both sets of parents came up for the occasion and it was fun to have them here!
Matt is in 'background' with the Oroville Police Department right now..which means he is in the hiring process with them..which is exciting! He will hopefully start working in January..so wish us luck! Heres my man in action! ♥
I had fun with my parents while they were here! Mom has been up here before but it was dads first time in Chico! While Matt was busy doing Academy stuff, we drove around town a bit and visited a couple of pretty parks!
We drove up to Paradise and saw Paradise Lake..
We went to the Chico Fly Shop and talked with the guys about fishin ;0) We also went to Oroville and did a little exploring there! We drove around town, went to Lake Oroville and visited the Feather River Fish Hatchery which was awesome! There they raise Steel Head trout and Salmon.
At the hatchery..the Fish and Game guys gave us the V.I.P. tour and showed us where they store and hatch the fish eggs and how they raise them! It was really cool to see and learn what they do!
They even let us feed the fish! It was pretty awesome :0)
(i look a little too excited in that pic) lol
After that we went home and played some Wii before we went to dinner :0)
Unfortunately i was only able to show my dad a little portion of the coolness around Chico but he will be back in the Spring time for some FISHING adventures!..so he says ;0) Thank you Mom and Dad Gates and Mom and Dad Bulkeley for coming up to visit..it means alot to have your support! See you at Christmas! Love you ♥
