Called to Serve

We have loved traveling and being with family for the past two years but we felt the call to serve another mission so here we are in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania for the next year.

Well, obviously I never got around to posting our trip to Chile. Suffice it to say it was pretty neat and we had a great time. We did a Hop On Hop Off bus tour in Santiago and we were really able to see a lot of the city. I think it was our favorite part of the trip. We were able to do a session at the temple before we headed to the airport and then home. That was really nice.

Well, we have since returned from yet another trip. We left April 30th to fly to Maryland and we spent two weeks with Jon and Margo. We arrived Thursday evening and Friday morning Jonathan did as we had suggested and took Margo into DC for an overnight date. We had such fun with the grandkids. It is just so great that there is never any getting acquainted time necessary with them.

We had planned on going into DC ourselves while we were back there but it rained almost everyday we were there. It cleared up after a week and so Wayne and I and Margo and the boys spent a day at Harpers Ferry. I have not looked at Wayne's pictures but I have one Margo took of us on the foot bridge going across the Potomac into Harpers Ferry. Wayne took every opportunity to carry Lucas in the backpack. He thought it would help in his preperation for his big hike this summer.

One of my favorite pasttimes was reading to the boys. I love this picture - except for the double chins!

This last picture was taken on the day we all went into Baltimore to the Railroad Museum. On our way out of the city we decided to hunt for Charm City Cakes. That is where the Food Network films Ace of Cakes. Stacy and I are big fans and I just had to take a picture back of the building. It was a Saturday so they were not open but even if they had been we would not have been able to go in. They are available only by appointment. They even had black plastic covering all of the windows. When we got back home I got on the website thinking I would order some t-shirts. I decided I really did not want to pay $26 plus shipping so I just started looking at what was posted on the site. I got curious about what a cake from them would cost and started looking for prices. They do not list them but it did say that they have a $1,000 minimum order. I think the show has really gone to their heads. Maybe they don't really need to sell cakes anymore. They make all their money doing the TV show.

Margo posted a few more pictures of Harpers Ferry if you want to check out her Blog. We'll see if I get ambitious enough to change computers sometime and add some of Waynes pictures.
