Gettysburg, PA

So it has been awhile. I don't know what to say except for I am just tired. Colby has been busy with midterms, Jayden thinks the world is at an end because he can't quite crawl, walk or eat the food he wants, and I am in the middle just glad to have had a shower and eaten myself. I will tell you that there is never a dull moment :) I guess I wouldn't want it any other way! Do you like Jaydens new smile? He squints his eyes and smiles really cheesy!

We went to Gettysburg over the 4th of July weekend. It was a lot of fun. We saw a huge reenactment and then had a tour of the park. During the reenactment canons were going off and smoke everywhere from the guns, it was pretty cool. I am in awe again for what was done and endured for our freedoms today. I hope I remember all that I learned there and appreciate my blessings today (even if we are paying $4.19 for gas). We got our picture taken with four of the reenacters and the whole time we were taking the picture they were looking at the line for the bathrooms and complaining. The guy on the far left said he was just going to find a private bush and then realized I was listening. He stopped talking but wasn't embarrassed. Oh well, as long as I don't have to walk by the bush :)

We are going to New York tomorrow, I can't wait. My Mom and Dad, brother and Grandparents are flying out to go with us. We will see New York City till Sunday, then head to Niagara Falls and Palmyra New York then see my Uncle in State College, PA. I am supposed to be packing right now but Jayden is napping and I got distracted by some long lost friends I found on Facebook.

We have kind of had a tough few weeks. Do you ever feel sometimes like Heavenly Father has a sense of humor? We had some rough news and hope and pray that we will know what is in store for us. Faith, just got to have faith! Love you all, see you next week after NY!
