Last sunday we decided to go to Atlantic City with Josh, Sunny, Hailey, Brandi and Ty! We went to check out the beach and walk the boardwalk. We ate lunch at the Rainforest Cafe and then just walked around, shopped, and took lots of pictures! I even collected a few sea shells.. ha. Besides the fact that the boys were very tired and sick of walking, ha we had a great day. Today we went to church and the Phillies game! I will post on that tonight. :) Here are a few pictures:The Ocean:

So, everything in Philly is going great! Although we do miss our families, we are having a great time. We really like it out here. We are so glad we have such good friends with us. There is so much to see and do. Austin is doing an awesome job at selling and i'm so thankful for all the hard work he's doing. He actually likes doing it so i'm happy for him! Even though we don't get to spend alot of time together, we have gotten to do and see some cool things. Last week we rode the train to downtown Philly and visited the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, the Conference Hall and we even ate a philly cheesesteak sandwhich straight from the vendor.. ha ha! Today Brandi and I went to Valley Forge and took the tour. It was way cool to see all that and learn the history behind it. We've gotten to visit the Love Park, fallen in love with a great restaurant called Bahama Breeze, gotten used to the idea that all the convienant stores are called WAWA, found a cool little trail that we walk on everynight and have even learned to get around without the GPS! (Sometimes) It's definatly different out here but its growing on us :) I hope everyone is doing good back home and I can't wait for my mom and sister to come visit in two weeks.. YAY! Here's a load of pictures:

It's been so long I don't even know where to start. School finished last week, which feels really nice. No homework or classes for 4 months!! We left last Wednesday morning and drove 36 hours to Philadelphia. Wow, what a trip! I thought we were never going to make it. ha ha but we did and we are really liking it :) Everything is going good out here.We have great friends out here with us and we've been having lots of fun. It has rained almost everyday since we've been here so we haven't got to see much, but once we do i'll start taking pictures. You don't realize how much of a desert Utah is until you come out here. It's so green with trees everywhere. Brandi took a few while we were driving to walmart so i'll post those.. Keep in mind that these pictures are the main roads in town. I'll keep you posted on everything!
