Visiting Family in PA Part 2

Tue ,23/03/2010

So, I haven’t written a lot about my visit in PA. It was so nice to see family. We’ve really missed them, and we still do.

I was so happy to see my sister, and we got to hang out a lot. The third day I was there we just hung out. One funny thing that we did was put a cabbage leaf on Katie’s head. I don’t think she really liked it, but it was funny.

We hung out with Justin and Julie the next day and it was so cute to see their kids with Katie. Aspen wanted to see the baby, and Ronan kept asking if he could feed her, it was so cute. It was so cute to see Forrester with her too, he’s such a good big brother and he was so good with Katie. Katie even pet Indy when Nicole was dressing her.

Wednesday was a great day. It was the first day I saw Katie smile. She was sitting in her car seat and Nicole was tickling her and laughing and she got a huge smile, it was adorable. We stopped at the Penn State creamery and got some ice cream, I’m a little bias to BYU, but it was pretty good.

Thursday was lots of fun. I decided that with all the milk Katie drinks, she needs some cookies, I really like mint oreos, so I gave her one.

Then she decided that she’d rather have milk, so she tried it on my arm…

That wasn’t what she wanted, so after she got fed she slept like a little angel. Isn’t she so cute?

Busiek State Forest

Mon ,22/03/2010

On Feb 20, 2010, we went hiking in the Busiek State Forest. It is only about 15 minutes south of where we live. There are tons of loop trails that makes for a close source of fun hiking. We did the Red Loop this day.

New Car

Sun ,21/03/2010

Wow, sorry it has been so long since we posted last.  We’ve really slacked off.  Tons has happened.  Both of use are going to try to catch up on everything.

Well, on Feb 15, 2010, we bought a new car!  Emily has had a really long commute because she has had to drop me off at work, go to work, go home (because she works half days), then come pick me up at the end of the day.  So it’s nice to have two cars.  We got a 2010 Toyota Corolla, it had 6 miles on it when we test drove it.  Now that it’s the end of March, we still love the car (and have already put 2300+ miles on it).
