Breakfast and Costco!

Jon and I needed to have a date together and since he never gets home until late we decided to go to breakfast. We foun this cute little pancake house near by and it was delicious. I had an omlette and jon had apple pancakes. As you can see by the pics they were enormous. We will share next time for sure. They had fresh squeezed orange juice as well. If anyone wants to know where it's at I can tell you.
After that Jon went to work so me and some girls went tocostco to get groceries. Here is a pic of my friends Shadolyn and Dani with our cart. People here probably think we are weird. oh well(:

My cute dogs and Rockefellar Center!

Hey everyone. I was getting ready one day and I came out to find my cute dogs snuggled up together taking a nap. They looked so adorable so I had to take a picture. They love to play together and Maverick loves to bug cooper when they are running outside. Jon took them to the park yesterday and was letting them go down the slide. I think the dogs thought Jon was crazy but he had fun.
Some of the girls and I went into the city to get lunch and to see Rockefellar Center and the empire state building. It is always fun to walk around New York because there is so much to see and you meet such interesting people. There are always groups of kids dancing and doing amazing things that I didn't think was possible with their bodies. I saw some huge billboards that said the power of platinum that I thought were cool since that's the name of the company Jon works for. He thought they were pretty neat. Anyway's it looks like everyone is having a nice fun summer so far so keep your blogs updated. I am so excited because my brother michael, his wife amber, and their cute new little boy Rex are coming to visit this week. I can't wait.

Central Park!

On Thursday my friend Deborah had a birthday so we celebrated with her after her work with Cupcakes and ice cream. Zoie loves playing with the dogs and they love playing with her. When they get close to her she squints her eyes and turns away. It is so cute.
On Sunday we had a great lesson at church. It was given in spanish so we had to listen with earphones to the translator. I never thought I would have to do that but it was cool and Patricia gave a really good lesson on prayer. Our branch had a linger longer after church to get to know all of us. It was so nice of them. After that Jon and I decided to go to the city with some friends and to bring our dogs with. We thought it would be nice to go have a picnic in central park and to walk through it. Little did I know how big and how long it takes to walk through that place. Luckily it is beautiful every step of the way. The Met and some other museums line the park but we were to late, they had already closed. Anyways it is so neat walking through the park and seeing the beautiful city rising up behind it.
Well thats all for now. Hope all is well.

I am a Dental Hygienist!

Well I just have to let everyone know that I passed all of my tests. I am so excited and can't wait to start working. This was what I have always wanted to do and I can't believe I am already done. Thanks to my husband, my friends( you know who you are), and my family for all your love and support.

City Girls!

Well a few of the wives and I were brave and decided to go into the city to do some exploring. We took the bus to the subway station and rode the subways the rest of the way in. For a bunch of westerners it was quite the task but it was so much fun. We went to Central Park and looked around. There we saw this group of boys telling us to circle around them so they could show us there moves. They were really good. I was quite impressed. It takes some muscles to go into some of those postions. Next we ate lunch in Time Square and looked around at which broadways we wanted to go see. Then we went down to Canal street " China Town" where some of the girls bartered for purses. They have some cute things down there for cheap. After that we went to the Soho neighbor hood where we saw the best stores everywhere. One of the girls we were with has a design internship there so we stopped by her work. That was that trip. Yesterday we went into the city again taking a much quicker route( which made us all happier). I really have been wanting to try the ever talked about Pink Berry so we went there first and I must say it was delicious. You wouldn't think just plain yogurt could be so good. And it is healthy which makes it even better. Then we went shopping in the Soho district which was awesome bc there is every store you would want there. Anyways, NY is an amazing and diverse city and it is awesome. There are also pics of my two cute Dogs Cooper and Maverick( at least that is what we are calling him for now.) Jon is working hard as usual and he is doing great!

WEll this is my third attempt at writing this blog and it has erased three times so I am going to make it short and sweet and spare you all the details I had in the other ones. To some it up... Jon and I went and drove all over the city on Sunday. We went to Brooklyn, Harlem, the Bronx, Queens, and Manhattan. We got out and walked around time square and watched the hockey playoffs on the jumbo screen at Madison Square Garden. This is an interesting city with so much going on all the time. We will see the city in more detail throughout the summer but we just wanted to drive around and see everything.
On Monday me and some of the wives got together for a cinco de mayo party. It was fun and we made goal chains for our husbands. They are like the count down chains you make for christmas except we right something fun for them to get every time they get a sell on each ring.
The best news of the day is that I passed my clinical boards. What a relief. I am waiting on one last result and then I will officially be able to work as a dental hygienist. I am so excited.
Well hope all is well with everyone.

I know their not as cute as everyones's cute children pictures but they are my children for now and I think they are adorable. The little guy is the newest edition to our family. He is tough. I thought cooper might be a problem but this guy can hold his own. He is so cute though. I haven't had a chance to go into New York yet but when I do I will for sure post pics. I am still busy getting settled and used to the time change. Jon is doing awesome and we have a great office this year so I am excited for this summer. Not that things will always go smoothly but the hope is as close to!(: Love and miss you all.
