Bus riding, memorial eating

Here is Smith in DC. We rode the Metro to Chinatown, and then took a bus to Philadelphia. It was just 2 hours and 45 mins. We watched the movie, Adam about a man with Asperger's Syndrome, read our book, The People of Paper, and I slept and dreamt of our bus flying off cliffs.

beautiful dirty Phili
Ete giving us a tour. They'd done so much since we'd been there last!
getting ready for their baby boy! He comes on the 14th!!! Such adorable little feetsies.
Sarah made cinnamon rolls and that is what we ate for 2 days. DELICIOUS.
Sunday morning walk through Pitman. We LOVED going to 1:30pm church!!!!!!!!!! Our church is at 8:30am, so it was the most wonderful break. Honestly, I've gained a testimony of later church! We got to wake up well-rested, read our lessons, read our scriptures, go on a walk together, and eat breakfast all before getting ready and leaving. EXCELLENT.
I loved this house. Half of it on stilts.

I like taking pictures of signs.

yes, yes, my shirt is inside-out and I like games.
This is one of my favorite books of all time, The People of Paper. Collin hasn't read it so we're reading it together aloud. I love Collin Smith.


Wiffleball fun. I was so nervous to play because it had been awhile since I'd played any sports, but I did AWESOME! I got on base every time I hit, got a few runs, and caught a fly ball in the outfield. Man, I felt 22 again.

It was time to get going. Uncle Miti drove us into Phili, and we made it to the bus station just in time to fight our way on the bus! We made it! Phew!!
This is where we stopped to get gas in the middle of nowhere on the bus back to DC. FREAKY! We all thought we had broken down and/or were going to die.
It was good to be back home in DC, but we had another 1.5 hours home to Rockville!!
Here's a deer in our backyard. Yahoo.
