I chopped my hair!

The other day i cut my hair and i love it--most of the time. I still wake up every morning and wish I had someone to do my hair, that will probably never change.

while we've been in buffalo

When we first got to buffalo with Josh's parents we took them to see Niagra Falls. While there we paid the $1 to walk down to the lookout. Most people bought ponchos so they didn't get sprayed by the mist, but we didn't. We walked right up to the very edge of the lookout and were sprayed by the mist. It was so much fun!! We all said the $1 was well worth it! We also walked across to the Canada side of the falls. That was fun, I'd never been to canada.

The next day we took them to Palmyra to see the church history sites. Of course we had to stop at the Chill'n Grill for lunch and some of their famous ice cream.

After Josh's parents left we worked on our house. We unpacked, painted a few rooms, weeded, put a boarder and mulch around our flowers. This summer we've also hungout with friends, played lazer tag, guitar hero, mini golf and other games. Gone to Crystal Beach, the Hill Cumorah Pagent, and Allegany State Park, and celebrated our summer anniversary.

Our summer anniversary is when we celebrate our first date. This year it was our 4th first date anniversary--it's so much easier to say "Summer Anniversary" We usually try to do something cute for each other and it's an excuse to go out to dinner! ~July 11, 2007

We backpacking at Allegany State Park. It was so pretty there! The woods here are so much different than when we've gone backpacking in Colorado and Idaho. At night there's no way to see the sky through all the trees so it is pitch black. We love backpacking and had a really good time except for the fact that my camera died about an hour in to our 5 hour hike in the first day, and on the way back we got lost. Other than that we had a great time, and our dog Teton loved being free to do whatever he wanted to do too! ~july 12-14,2007

This was the first time Josh and I had seen the Hill Cummorah Pagent, we had a good time. The church always does a great job with their productions. We went with Tyler's whole family while they were in town. ~july 20, 2007

the past few months

We just moved to Buffalo, NY and have some downtime before life picks up again so I thought that this would be an ideal time to join the craze and start a blog! Here's the update on our life. In December of 2006 Josh was accepted to dental school at UB in Buffalo, NY. Right away we started making plans to buy a house. After all the negotiation, fedex overnight paper packages, phone calls and money exchanges...well i guess it's not called an exchange when we're just giving money, not getting any...we closed on March 8. Our lives didn't really change when we became homeowners. We stayed in our same townhouse and at our same jobs in colorado springs until our lease ended at the end of May. Then we stayed around for Josh's brother's wedding and began our adventure across the country the day after the wedding. Josh's parents helped us drive since we had a uhaul and 2 cars-we really appreciate their help. We got here in 3 days, and have been hanging out and working on our house. We painted a few rooms and worked in our yard. I'm currently looking for a job and Josh starts school in a few weeks and then all our fun and free time will have to slow WAY down. Until then we're going to live it up!!
