It's been awhile

It's been way too long since I last posted, sorry. We've been busy with work and school and stuff like that. I really haven't made the time to blog. Since we last posted....

We spent 4th of July in downtown DC with our friends, the Hawks. They live in the middle of all the museums and sights of DC so it was so awesome to watch the fireworks from their rooftop. We felt very honored that we were invited. It was just incredible to see the fireworks go off right next to the Washington Monument and the Capitol Building.

Our ward had a 4th of July BBQ. Peter participated in the pie eating contest. It was not his favorite activity.

We also got to go to the Redskins vs. Steelers preseason game. It was a beautiful night and fun to spend time with the Craguns and see the Redskins win.

I don't know if you've heard or not, but we've had an earthquake and a hurricane come through our area in the last week. I've never experienced an earthquake before, it was wild. Luckily it wasn't too strong and minimal damage was done (at least in our area). We came home to this.

 Only two things knocked down, not bad. The hurricane didn't come right through town so we just experienced some wind and rain. We've been lucky, that's for sure.
