Three years and counting!

Kory and I just had our three year anniversary on July 27th! Crazy huh? The time has flown by. I scares me to think about how fast the next three year will go!

Lucky for us, Kory happened to have Monday off this week so we were able to take a fun trip to Virgina and to Washingtion D.C. for our anniversary. We started out visiting Kory's family in Virginia Saturday night and stayed with them until Monday morning. It was nice to spend some time with his family since we don't get to very often.


I love the Washington D.C. Temple, it's so pretty!


We stayed in Washington D.C. on our anniversary night and woke up early to do a session. I was so excited to finally go inside this temple.

Luray Caverns!!!!!! One of the most awesome things we've seen!


So...on our way from Virginia to D.C. we kept seeing huge billboards advertising the Luray Caverns... the largest caverns in the east. I read a few of the billboards to myself and thought that I would have to come back and do that sometime. As we got closer and closer to the exit I asked Kory if he had noticed the billboards. He had and we decided to take a chance and check them out. WOW, what a great decision...it always pays off to be spontaneous! The caverns were huge and filled with all kinds of stalactites....and the tour included an audio tour right on our individual headsets. IF YOU ARE IN VA, GO TO THESE CAVERNS.
We had a great anniversary to say the least.

Fried eggs anyone? Funny how these really do look like fried eggs! This was one of our favorite parts in the cavern. This picture looks like it has stalactites AND stalagmites in it, but really the bottom half of the picture is all a reflection in a pool of water. This looked so awesome in person! The audio tour said that the people who discovered the caverns called this little spot the fish market...can you see the fish all hanging in a row? We went to the driving range with a few of Kory's brothers and I actually hit some pretty good balls...or should I say...drove some good shots..? Logan, Jaymes, and Kory We had a picnic at "the river" in Virginia with Kory's family. I wish we would have had more time to throw on own our suits and go for a dip! Kory's sister Jennie and brother-in-law Alan and their kids were also in Virgina visiting so we were able to spend some time with them too!

Brown or Blonde ?

I need some help deciding....Should I keep my hair the blondish color that it is now, or dye my hair brown? I keep thinking about dying it back brown, which is really the most like my natural hair color, but I also like it blonde. So, I want your vote on whether you think I should keep my hair the color that it is now or dye my hair brown. Here are a few pictures to look at to help you decide! You can place your vote on the side! Thanks ;)






UPDATE

I just wanted to include a little update about Kory and his success! For the month of June Kory's security company had a selling tournament. Each sells guy was matched up with another sells guy within the company. Which ever guy sold the most that week got to move on and be matched up again. Kind of like the NBA playoffs! You are probably asking what they guy gets when they win...well Kory went all the way to the championship round and along the way earned tickets to a Philly's game, a $100.00 dollar gift card to Best Buy, a 19" LCD T.V. and an x-box 360... which he has been wanting for a very long time, but I have been to cheep to buy for him;) The champion of the tourament won a tropical vacation for two. Kory worked so hard and was so close to winning..I'm very proud of him for going so far in the tournament. Right now Kory is on track to get 100 sells which is his summer goal.

Visitors from the west!

My mom and her bestfriend Joy Alldredge decided to fly back east and visit. It worked out great because Joy's son Phil, is also out hear working for Stone Security. So they were able to kill two birds with one stone. We we able to do a lot of fun things in 9 days. We toured downtown Philadelphia, went to Valley Forge, shopped at the King of Prussia Mall, rode a bus to New York and spent two days there, saw the play Wicked, went to visist the Amish people, and went to the Hershey factory. Kory and Phil get every other Monday off so they were able to spend the day with us in Hershey.

It was nice to have visitors! Thanks for coming mom!



So... there is an Amish city in Pennsylvania named "Intercourse", we just had to get a picture!



I even bought a deck of cards that say, "I (heart) Intercourse" :)
