4 G's

For General Conference we went to beautiful West Virginia for the weekend. It was so much fun thanks to Mandie for taking care of all the details and for Melanie for doing all the food!!! We really owe them a lot, because they did all of the work!! We Love them!!
General Conference +the Gochnours + the Gottwalds+ the Gochnours= 4G's

Nick and little Jack petting a neighbor dog!

We went on a short bike ride in between sessions of Conference, too bad the bikes were kinda rusty, because I was really looking forward to it.

Nick striking a pose!

I love this picture, I look hilarious! We found some vines on a hike that we went on and decided to be Tarzan and Jane!!

Nick with his walking stick, Jonathan and John Jacob leading the pack!

It was a super steep hill, I felt bad for little Jack because he kept on falling, but he was a trooper!

My cute little niece Makaya!!

Handsome Nick

My color- Yellow-but sadly I broke the mallet:(

The game of croquet, I think it might be Nick's favorite game!
We had so much fun, catching up with John Jacob and Melanie and to see Jonathan, Mandie, and Makaya again!!!

Gettysburg Excursion

On another rainy day, we ventured to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania!!

We learned all about the the 3 day battle, took a bus tour, ate at General Picketts all you can eat buffet, saw the famous Gettysburg Cyclorama, and went to Harper's Ferry!

Us starting our journey!

We are standing in front of a cannon used in the civil war.

Waiting for the bus, we had enough of the rain!!

Yep, that is right, I finished the Last Harry Potter book yesterday!!! It has been a long journey, but worth it!! For the record..... I read the books first and then I watch the movies after. So in August Nick and I went to the 6th movie, then I was able to read the last book. Love it!! But my question is.... should Harry have been able to fly (without a broom of course, like Snape and Voldemort) because she hinted that his mom could??? ..... Interesting???
