Yesterday my sweet husband sent me these flowers that said, "Just thinking about you!" I just wanted to thank him and let him know how much I love and miss him. He means the world to me and I can't wait until he gets home... hopefully not very much longer :)

Well first off, I have to tell everyone how excited I am to be home!! It feels great and i've been having so much fun, but at the same time I miss Austin soo much. It's going to be hard being away from him for a while but it'll be worth it. I am so proud of him and all his hard work. Hopefully he won't be gone too much longer cause I really miss him! Anyways, I've been home almost two weeks now. I worked all last week in Cedar City and start school on monday, but I will definatly be coming home for the weekends! This weekend Nate and Hollie went to fishlake so, Tyson, Jerrica and I drove up last night. We made smores, hung out, laughed a little too much, and watched a movie. We had a lot of fun! I've loved being home and spending time with my family. I've gotten to spend lots of days with my cute nephews....

Last week Brandi's mom was here visiting so of course we went touring. No matter how much you tour here, you could never see it all. We took the metro downtown, walked by the white house, visited the Washington Monument, Abe Lincoln memorial, and then walked to see the capitol. We were a little tired but luckily it wasn't a very hot day. The weather was actually perfect. The next day we went to the Holocaust musuem. I'm so glad I got to visit that. It was such a neat place. Those poor people went through so much. After the musuem we went to Arlington Cemetery again and walked around. We had so much fun and I'm so glad I got to visit those neat places.

This will be my last post of D.C. being that I come home in 2 DAYS!!! I can't wait to see my family, I've missed them so much. We've had a great summer but i'm ready for real life now, my vacation is over! See you all in UTAH :)

Weekend in D.C.

The weekends come and go by way to fast out here. Maybe it's because Austin's weekends only consist of one day, Sunday! This Sunday we decided to go to Arlington National Cemetery. Besides the fact that it was way too hot, we had a lot of fun. We walked around, went and saw the Tomb of the Unknown, changing of the guards, General Lee's house, and JFK's grave. The cemetery has such a neat feeling and we are so glad we got to see it. For other news, I'm headed home in a week!! I can't believe it's already time to leave and start school again. We've had such a fun summer and I'm so glad we got to see and do the things we have. I'm so so excited to see my family but at the same time, so sad to leave sweet Austin here! I'm going to miss him.

Austin was not enjoying the heat, ha ha...

On Saturday, Amy's mom took Brandi and I to the Washington D.C. temple to do a session! It was amazing, I'm so glad we got to do that. The temple is so pretty!
Oh and I had to post this, ha ha Amy was teaching Austin a little yoga.. "the downward facing dog" (he's gonna kill me)
