Well, the time has finally come. We are officially done with the New York experience. It was definitely fun to go, but Drew and I agreed that we would never want to live there. We are now in Utah and have been since Wednesday night. It seems completely dead around here. Where are the thousands of people wandering around like in NYC? Oh well, I like it better like this.
For the last week in NY, Drew's parents came out and stayed with us. We had so much fun with them. I think they kind of wore themselves out, but I think all in all they enjoyed themselves. We showed them around, taking them to Times Square the night they came, to Grant's Tomb and Rockefeller Center and the American Girl Store (which was AWESOME) and the Empire State Building and the M&M store and the Hershey's factory (kinda lame) and then they went and saw Phantom of the Opera that night. The next day they had to wander around by themselves. Then we just kind of showed around. Sunday we went to Harlem 1st ward and Central Park and Little Italy. Lots of fun. And this was all a week after Drew's mom had surgery. She is a fighter.
Anyway, New York was good to us. I'm so glad we were able to go. Although Drew didn't LOVE his internship, I thinks it's better that we went. It looks snazzy on a resume.
Well, our next adventure is.........
TEXAS! That's right, we are officially going to Texas to work before Drew can apply to UT-Austin or BYU. We want to establish residency and since the standard of living is wayyyyy cheaper than Cali, we thought Texas would be more affordable.
