Last sunday Austin, Ty and Trav went to the U.S. Open. They woke up at 4 a.m. and drove to NYC all just to see tiger ha ha! They had a great day and luckily the weather was pretty good. They had a blast watching Tiger and all the others play. Austin said he almost brushed shoulders with Tiger, and they definatly made eye contact. ha ha! He was pretty excited about it. I'm so glad they had fun! The sad thing is, they didn't let him take a camera in so he didn't get any pictures... Other then that life has been about the same. We're still liking it out here!! Brandi and I try and keep ourselves busy, ha! We went to the proposal last week and we loved it. I definatly recommend it :) It was soo good! Here is a couple pics of me and Aus just in case you forgot what we looked like:

Well.. it has taken me three days to post about this vacation, as well as three days to recover. ha ha! We were literally going nonstop. We were all exhausted and had aching bodies. ha, But it was worth it, we got to go and see so many cool things. On the last day, Austin was able to come with us. So we drove to Gettysburg and on the way, we stopped in Lancaster to check out the Amish! It was so crazy to see how differently people live. We seen lots of little buggies driving around and luckily my mom had read alot about the amish, so she told us everything! When we arrived to Gettysburg we took the tour of the town and visited all the battlefields and monuments. It is a really neat little town. We had so much fun and i'm so glad my mom and sister got to come and visit. Even though I was very very sad when they left, I am glad they came. We had a blast and laughed the whole entire trip. Thanks for coming you guys. We love you!!!

On the second day of the trip, we stayed in Philadelphia. We went downtown and visited the liberty bell, independance hall, and congress hall. We also went to visited Valley Forge. We had a fun day, even though it rained and we were all so tired from walking. I won't post to many pictures of the second day since i've already posted pictures from the first time i went. The third day we headed to New York City. It was awesome. Once again we started the day at 6 a.m. by heading to the train station. Once we arrived in NY, we took a cab to Battery Park where we took the statue of liberty tour. This was so neat and a very pretty view. Next we walked up broadway street. We stopped at wall street and ground zero. We probably walked a total of six miles, ha! Then we went rockafeller center and times square. Times square was my favorite. We seen the MTV building and David Letterman building. We had so much fun! Next post (day 4).. Gettysburg and Amish country :)

As most of you know, my mom and sister, Tricia, came to stay with me. They stayed almost a week and we went to so many neat places. So, this will be a very long post so i'm breakin it up into three seperate ones. I picked them up from the airport on Wednesday afternoon. We had a lot planned for us so we started the next day bright and early (5 a.m.) We had train tickets to Washington DC for 7 a.m. Once we got to Washington DC we hopped on a tourmobile that took us to all the neat places. We had such a fun time and laughed so hard everyday. It rained all day. We were soaking wet, went through 3 umberellas, and were absolutely exhausted when we made it back to my apt late Thursday night. Here our some pictures of our first day....

This weekend came and went by way to fast... Saturday night we went to Chili's with the office. Sunday we got up early and went to church, the phillies game, and later went to hooters with our friends. The phillies game was awesome. Besides the fact that we roasted, ha we had so much fun! The lady next to us really wanted to get on the Jumbotron so she kept pointing to us yelling to the camera man, "They are mormons from Utah, it's their first Phillies game, they need to be on the big screen." Ha ha it was so funny. Thankfully, we didn't get on the screen. Some of our friends birthdays were this past week so we all went to Hooters to celebrate. We had lots of fun and are so glad we have good friends out here! We had a great weekend and wish everyday was Sunday ha. But, I cannot wait until tomorrow... my mom and sister are coming to visit!! We are going to Washington D.C., New York, and Gettysburg. So i'll definatly have some good posts. I'm so excited to see them :) Here are some pictures from this weekend:Pretty view of the city from the stadium:
