This past weekend is always a hard time of the year for me.. (My family understands) Anyway Brent being the sweetheart that he is took me out for a wonderful day.

Here we are driving past Dawson street- (this street is down the road from us and we have had several people ask us why we didn't live here!)

Over the Benjamin Franklin Bridge
BEACH BABY!!! 2 1/2 hours later we were at the New Jersey shore! Here is the first thing Aubrie did- grabbed the sand bucket and began the fun!

I couldn't have thought of a better way to spend a day. In APRIL can you believe it!? No, seriously thank you Brent and we will surely be going again soon.

Bonnie's Visit

My Mom came out last week. We began the week, first when I went to pick her up at Kristi's in Virginia. I made the mistake of telling Aubrie a few days before we went- she was jumping off the walls (literally) she was so excited. I hopefully won't make that mistake again. Unfortunately my Mom got sick, then Aubrie got sick. Her trip pretty much consisted of spending time in my house. Bummer! However we did manage to show her around in Center City a little and she took us to this delicious dinner at a place called London Grill. Plus, she got to come to my ward here (which I seriously love)! Yes Brian- Brent did wear this jacket to tick you off....
Thanks for coming to visit us on the East coast Mom- we love you!

New Job

I realized recently that I forgot to post about my new job. I am working at the Roxborough YMCA here in Philadelphia! It has been so much fun. I teach the Little Gymers class. It is a gym class for toddlers. My favorite part is that I get to take Aubrie. I have missed teaching and so this has been such a blessing for me to use my "creative energy" to do something productive. So I have been doing that for about 6 weeks and last week I started helping teach the preschool soccer class as well as helping host the Teen/Tween nights there. I am SO excited that opportunities are opening up. I am also grateful to be making new friends. I have also realized that having a little part time job truly does make me happy- it gives me an outlet- something just for me. I still miss Downeast and all those fun coworkers... (and the clothes...)
Go YMCA - I hope you are all singing the song now!

On a side note- Brent is looking for family practice doctors to do his final preceptorship (rotation) with in Utah. If you know anyone that might be interested please call me.
