Our weekend

I decided instead of waiting a couple of weeks to tell you about our weekend that I'd just do it now. So this weekend we went and saw Journey to the Center of the Earth, and did you know it's a 3D movie? I had no idea. When we got our tickets the guy also handed us two pairs of these extremely good looking glasses (as I'm sure you can see). And because I didn't know that I'd be wearing glasses I wore my glasses. Lucky for me they were big glasses and fit right over my glasses. So this is how I ended up sitting watching the entire movie. Very good movie too by the way. A good family movie.
On Saturday we went to a birthday party for a family in our ward. It was practically the whole families birthday so they celebrated with one big party at a state park.
As you can see we both had a very good time. We played on the playground, threw around the frisbee, had cake, and the whole time we got to spend time together so we enjoyed ourselves. The day was sunny and incredibly warm. And the kids were all in pretty good moods too.

We enjoyed the rest of our weekend just by spending time together. I love it when Travis comes home. I look forward to it all week! But then every Sunday he leaves and it's sad and yesterday was no different. It stunk. But Monday is practically over which means that there are only a couple more days left until I get to see him again. Can't wait! I miss you Trav!

Welcome to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania!

So I really should have done this post weeks ago but just never did and I don't want to skip it so we'll just back track. A couple of weekends ago I went out to Pittsburgh to visit Travis (he is staying out there for his surgery rotation). We hadd so much fun together. It had only been five days since we hadseen each other but it seemed much longer than that. We were able to do some shopping, go out to a well-known restaurant there, we went up the incline, out for ice cream, and spent the entire weekend together! I loved every moment of it.

This is the well-known restaurant we went to in downtown Pittsburgh.

This is what they are known for, they're sandwhiches! On them they have fries and coleslaw. When I got it I thought, 'oh, man, this has potentional to be gross', and then I took a bite, and oh, so good. I highly recommend this place for anyone who visits Pittsburgh.

Travis enjoyed it too!

This is the incline.
This is us going up the incline.

And this is the awesome family that Travis has been staying with in Pittsburgh-Phil, Brynne, and Mia. Such a cute and wonderful family. We are so grateful for all of the wonderful things that they have done for us to help us out! It was such a great weekend! I love you Travis, and I miss you already. Oh! And Travis is loving his surgery rotation and as it turns out he's pretty good at it too. One of the doctors want him to come work for him! Go Travis!
