Today we got to go an actually walk through our new house that is almost finished!! We also got our closing date- August 16th, which means move in date will probably be August 18th. I am so excited- I felt like I couldn't start packing because it seemed so far away but now I have less than a month- so guess what I am doing to night..... packing of course. Here are a few pics from our trip out today.

Inside joke amongst our group of friends
Just the girls
Ashley swears she was born gangsta!
Wow! What a weekend. Saturday after a long day at work we ended up at Joe's girlfriend Andrea's for his grad party/send off to the Marines- its still scarey knowing that he is old enough to do so! We hung out with our friends Josh & Nicole and a few people from Church- oh what fuuny pictures we have!
We decided to take a break from life on Sunday. Yes I know we should have been at church BUT with the events that took place this last week- we NEEDED to get away from everything and have some good ole' fashion F-U-N!! We headed off to 6 Flags Great America at 9a.m with Josh, Nicole & Megan. I guess everyone else had the same idea in mind for the day because it was packed. The waterpark was AWESOME!! They have this slide called the tornado- definelty #1 on my list. It shoots you straight down this dark tube at 45mph and whips you ip the side back and forth (at about 4-5 stories high until finally you come out of the end into the pool- sorry I didn't get a picture but they have one on the sight. The wave pool was awesome followed by the "bowl" slide- which is like a toilet bowl- you go round and round until you go through the hole at the end. And last but not least- the lazy river. We had fun grabbing each other to try to direct their tube in the path of waterfalls and spraying jets. At about 5- we ventured out into the park to ride some rides. Nicole and Megan hit up the Raging Bull- an absolutely scarey lookinf rollar coaster, while Josh, Dennis and I opted for the Chubasco- spinning tea cups. Dennis got the thing spinning so fast it felt like we were upside down. Of course we couldn't leave without going on the scrambler- which in my opinion was very weak compared to the one Nicole and I rode last summer in Lake Geneva that had my face plastered to her arm 3 feet up in the air! On the drive home we swung by the temple to show our non LDS friends where we got married and talked about the importance of it- see we had a missionary moment that counts doesn't it.
