Best Surprise Ever!!!!!

Jason is always surprising me and last week he gave me the best surprise yet!! He surprised me awhile ago and bought me a car but it was back in Utah so I hadn't seen it yet and thought we wouldn't have it until we went home..... but my mom, dad, and two little sisters Alisha and Brooke, drove out in it. I was so excited to see them! I was in shock!!!! We spent all last week traveling around the east coast and seeing so many amazing things- we had a blast!! We started out our trip in Pittsburgh. I took them on a hike but kinda forgot my way around the trail so it ended up being a very long adventure- my dad finally found a main road and we followed that back to our car- luckily my family has great attitudes so it was very enjoyable- blisters and all! Then we went to West Virginia where my Grandpa grew up. We saw the farm he was raised on and the super famous 'Stockett Road'. After West Virginia we went to Washington D.C. my dad is so good with all us girls- he found a very large outlet mall for us and we found some amazing sales! The next day we went into D.C. and saw so many amazing things it is such a clean city- we loved it! After D.C. we drove to New York City- we walked all over the city, saw amazing buildings, went into China town (which was very stinky) and ate a hot dog in Central Park. It kept raining off and on so it cleared up the air and made it easier to see the city. After New York City we went to Palmyra- it was so neat to be in such a spiritual place with my family.. Then we went to Canada to see Niagra Falls it was beautiful. Then we came back to our house and Jason and I spoke in church on Sunday- it was great having a very supportive fan club there!! We had a bbq with the Bells and Katie made me a very yummy birthday cake. We played games and enjoyed all the company. Monday we went to the chocolate store again and then we went swimming it was pretty chilly and the pool was the emptiest we have ever seen it. After the pool we went to the mall and then to the airport. It was so sad to send them home. The week was the funnest week ever and it went by so fast! I'm so grateful for my family and Jason and all they do to make me the happiest girl ever! I'm so excited to get back to Utah to be with all our awesome family again!! :)

That sounds like so much fun. I can't believe how much you guys did!! What cool experience to be able to see so much, and with your family. No wonder why I haven't seen you in so long.
