Gettysburg and Hershey

This weekend we went on another quick get-a-way! It was so much fun. We went to Gettysburg and Hershey. We went with our friends Jake and Katie Bell. Gettysburg was about 3.5 hrs. away. I drove most of the way there Saturday night which was the most I have driven since being here- it was good to be behind the wheel again!! :) We stayed at the Hilton in Gettysburg- Jason loved the hotel it was very bright and the colors looked fabulous! He kept making comments on it :) Sunday morning we went to church and it started raining, lightning, and thundering while we were in church but as soon as we left it cleared up and was a beautiful day. We went to the Gettysburg visitor's center and went on a tour it was so neat to see all the history there! We had a picnic and then went and saw some of the different battlefields. We also went to the Gettysburg college where Remember the Titans was filmed. Gettysburg was the place that Jason really wanted to see while we were out here so I am so glad that we were able to go!!! Then we went to Hershey which was chocolate heaven!! I loved it! The street lights were probably my favorite- they were kisses- some had wrappers on and some were naked- so cute!!!

I just wanted to do a little post about my amazing husband Jason. He is the best thing that has ever happened to me!! He spoils me, makes me laugh, makes me want to be better, and loves me no matter what. He taught the lesson yesterday in Sunday school and I was so proud of him!!! Jason is the most incredible guy ever! He never talks bad about people, he is so caring, loving, sweet, amazing, and he sees the good in everyone and everything and he always stays positive! I am so grateful for him in my life!! I love you Jason! :)

Hill Cumorah Pageant

Last night I went to the hill Cumorah Pageant with Shannon, Cove, and Tiffany. It was such a neat experience. It took 5 hrs. to get there. The pageant was amazing and the Spirit was so strong. We had the chance to visit with some of the cast members. It was incredible to hear everything that goes on to put on such an amazing performance. We drove straight home after the pageant so we got home around 4:30 am. We had a blast visiting, playing games, eating, and watching the pageant. I am so grateful for all the amazing experiences I have been able to have while being out here in Pittsburgh!

These are a couple scenes from the pageant- it was hard to get a good picture-

This car was cool- we past it on our way-

Cove sleleping in the car- this is what he did almost the entire time

Pennsylvania Pet

This is the pet I had here in Pennsylvania- a cute, fuzzy, full of rabies, ground hog! Some of the boys caught it in our garage and locked it in there. It chewed through some wires so now our garage door is broken.. He was cute though.. Maybe next we will catch a bunny!! :)
