So a couple of weeks ago we went to the Stratosphere with Daniel and Brittney to go on the rides at the top!...it's been awhile since we have done this and I am learning that the older I get the more my distaste for rides such as these grow!...Adam and I had gone on the Xscream a long time ago and I was pretty sure that I was going to plummet to my death on that thing...(for those of you who don't know that is the one where you sit in a row and let the ride slam you straight down looking at the Strip below only to be brought back up and to have them do it again!...NOT FUN!)...So needless to say we did not ride that this time!...But Daniel and Brittney did however risk their lives to go on on the Insanity..which it alot like the swings you'd find at a fair that go around in a spinning circle and bring you back down...but we are of course in Vegas so everything is bigger and badder...these swings slide out over the edge of the Stratosphere and then proceed to tilt in a 70 degree angle while spinning over the lovely strip!...YUCK!..so after they were back safe all 4 of us rode the BIG SHOT which each of us did not remember being so scary!...Anyway it was a great night and we topped it off with delicious frozen custard from Love-It's...mmmm...ps..check out B&D's blog for more pics...I didn't have my camerea...this lovely photo was taken by a very animated photo worker at the Stratosphere...notice the model worthy expressions on the guys faces!

Ok so we're almost caught up...September was the month when they FINALLY started our house!...I guess with all the foreclosure craziness it takes a bit longer to dot the i's and cross the t's which is fine by me!...It's been so exciting to watch the stages...they really have been working fast! With-in 4 weeks they've layed the foundation, put up the framing and windows and are about set to lay the roofing!...I can't wait for it to be done I'm soo excited we are really blessed to be able to buy a home...thanks to the help and support of our families. It can for sure be intimidating to buy a house with no previous experience on the subject...luckily I'm kind of a research freak so I feel like we've got a good handle on the situation...so far! Our house should be ready about mid Dec/mid Jan they say, so here are some pics of what's been happening so far! Oh and my grandma Mickey turned 80 in September!...so we went down to California to celebrate and we got to spend some much needed time with our friends Troy and Tiff and their baby Makayla!..the whole family minus a few were there and everyone had an awesome time on the boat...Happy Birthday Grams!...I love you! So there you have it...our lives from April until now in a nutshell...hopefully we will be better at this...I have a feeling we will be because we definately have alot to be greatful for and what better way to document the things in life than by writing it all down as it happens!

So our summer was slated to be pretty low key with not much going on but ended up being a whirlwind of unexpected trips and lots of fun! After our fun Cabo trip we divided and conquered with who Adam headed out on a father and sons trip to Yosemite which was in jeopardy because of the fires that were going on around that time...luckily they were far from danger and able to have an awesome time...Shortly after that I headed out to the Poconos to watch my brother take the lead in Carousal the musical...he was awesome!...I finally got to expeience a true "Philly" cheesesteak and it was amazing...I had 3 in 3 days from 3 of the most famous cheesesteak places in Philly...needless to say after I cam home with one in hand for Adam I was off cheesesteaks for a while. I did manage to catch the Liberty Bell and Indepenence Hall (I thing that's what its called) so it was educational as well as appetizing!
