Summer Fun & Events

The summer in NYC is so much fun! There are lots of things to do and to keep you busy. Who wants to work when there is so much to do.

The NY Philharmonic & Met Opera give free concerts in the park throughout the city.
The Today show has a free concert every Friday morning at 8:30 am at the Rockefeller center. They have had Cold Play, Usher, & Josh Groban so far, and we are planning on going to Miley Cyrus, Rascal Flats, and Celine Dion in the next month. Bryant Park shows movies every Monday evening.

We are also planning some other fun events. We are going to Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey. We are going up to Boston to spend a weekend, and want to spend some time in Philadelphia. If we have any time left, we may plan a road trip to Palmyra and Niagara Falls. And of course, you can't forget the beach!!!!

This Friday, on July 4th, we are having a huge party at our apartment. It will be a lot of fun with friends & food, and an incredible view of the fireworks from our apartment window. We are going to a BBQ with some of Emily's co-workers earlier in the day, so it will be non-stop fun.

Summer Fun in NYC

We are doing well. We still do not have a camera, since it was stolen in Jamaica. But we will get one soon so that we can put more pictures up on the blog.

We have had a busy few weeks. Scouts is going well and keeping me busy. We have a campout in a few weeks, so that will be fun preparing for. Emily has Enrichment on Tuesday, so she is busy planning that. Work is going well. Emily is Super Star! She is getting so many compliments on her hard work.

Thursday night we went to a fireside with Gary Crittenden, the CEO of Citigroup. He is incredible. We really had a good time and enjoyed his comments.

Friday night we went to this steakhouse called "Angelo & Maxie's" by Union Square for a friend's birthday. It was a lot of fun - with about 30 of us there. We have a great ward and have made tons of friends.

Saturday we had a ward BBQ that was so much fun. It was at the house of a guy in our ward, and was so much fun. The weather here is pretty good, normally in the 70's, but it is so humid. That has taken some time to get use to.

We are doing really well and are excited for the summer!!

Temple ... Eve?

So Emily and I volunteered to clean the Manhattan temple last Thursday. We were busy cleaning when all of a sudden, the woman in charge walked in, and what do you know, it was the brunette Eve from the video.

Her name is Sister Moe, and we had a lot of fun cleaning with her. Talk about a busy woman - actress by day, cleaner by night. Needless to say, it was a fun experience. Her husband (Adam) is a Bishop here in Manhattan. The strange thing is that their names are Adam and Eve. No, just kidding.
