In response to certain comments about my lack of posts on our website, here are some pictures on my 24th birthday. Janae gave me a fabulous present of tickets to go see Phantom of the Opera at the Kennedy Center. My family sent me a package that contained candy, 2 collared shirts for work, and some money for new shoes. Happy Birthday to me!!!

This is the beautiful house that Tyson and I are living in right now! It's definitely the biggest one on the block and has the coolest stuff on the inside :) The family goes to their summer house in Rhode Island every June and stay there until the end of August. So, we are in charge of making sure the house doesn't fall apart :) We (mostly I) water the plants, feed the fish, water the grass, mow, and edge the yard. It is so nice to have a house!!! The only problem is that I am spoiled now! I want to live in a house right now, when I know that it won't happen for a while. But, it is nice to have your own house, even if it is just for a little while!
The kitchen is one of my favorite rooms because it is sooooo big! She has 6 burners, two sinks, and a great island! Also, the microwave has all these neat button including the reheat option. I don't know how it does it, but you push that button and whatever you are heating up comes out the perfect temperature. The microwave has some sort of sensor in it. It's seriously amazing!

So, we missed a few states...they had poor signs. But, hey, we did our best! West Virginia was a bit tough because of the whole bridge thing. Tyson and I thought about risking our lives to climb up the bridge and almost get killed, but then decided against it. :) Good thing! West Virginia was also the place the we took an hour detour because the highway was backed up for hours! So, we took the this super windy road, I was getting sick, and we didn't really know if we were going the right way. Then, we saw a Community of Christ Church in the middle of the woods (the old RLDS)!! Talk about random! When we finally got back on to the original road we were so grateful! We stopped at a Pizza Hut and we decided that it was the best pizza we have ever had in our lives. Now, whether that was because we were on a small, swervy road for over an hour or because we actually loved the pizza, we will never know :) Virginia is by far the prettiest state we drove through (in my opinion...Sorry, Tys, if you think otherwise). We have yet to take a picture at a DC sign, but we found a small one on the way to our chapel...so, we'll put it up soon! Oh, another random story! We stopped at a rest stop in Indiana (where we have the picture) and we met an LDS couple that was doing a cross-country drive! They were doing it just for fun! How random! Also, they were from Nevada! It really is a small world :)
This is the beginning of our cross country drive from Las Vegas, NV to Washington, DC! Let me tell you, it was long! But, we had some Harry Potter books along the way to make it a little more interesting. Kansas was probably the flattest state of all that we drove. Flat with just grass. But, surprisingly, it was a fairly fast drive...possibly because I was speeding to try and get to Illinois. :) I especially like our Superman pose in front of the Welcome to Kansas sign :)
