In June we went to Moab with the family. We rented a condo for a few days and saw a lot of cool things. My favorite was waking up before sunrise and driving to dead horse point. We watched the sunrise over the look out and were the only people there.  It was breath taking. We went to Arches and Canyon lands and went on a few little hikes.

Back East & The Rainforest

Well I told myself that I was going to be better about blogging. I say that then I think about writing something and feel totally overwhelmed but I guess I just have to start somewhere. So in April we went Back East. It was a blast! Troy and I visited Chicago, Greendale Wisconsin, Baltimore, Philadelphia and Carlisle PA and Washington D.C. Did I mention that it was a blast? We saw so many things and visited Amy's family and my parents on a mission (who are back as of July). 

Here is where the rainforest comes into play. As we all know, on the subway we can find God's choicest creations. It was such a time in DC with Amy's family on the subway that we found ourselves crammed up against a 6'5" transvestite. The subway was packed and we were all sweating our brains out. He was wearing a sleeveless dress, had make up, pumps, long hair and nail polish the whole sha-bang. I was trying not to stare but it was so consuming. Anyway it was so funny to watch peoples reactions as the realized that he in fact was a man. People were slowing taking a step back here and there from the tranny  taking away any extra room there was. It was then that Amy chimes up "It feels like a rainforest in my pants". Needless to say everyone took another step toward the tranny. Anyway, Enjoy a few pics.

It's Official

It's official I am now a stay at home mom. Crazy! I am really going to miss everyone at my work. I always get so connected to the people I work with, it will be hard to not see them regularly. However, I could not be more thrilled to spend everyday with little Miss Macy Moo! She is so fun and being a mom is so much better than I had ever imagined. Wish us luck I have no idea how we will make it, but I am sure it will all work out.

Big News

We have big news at the Riley home. After a long wait we are finally expecting! I am sure this is a surprise to you all because it is to us! We were just two days away from putting money down on a adoption and we found out. God works in mysterious ways and we are so grateful. We are hoping this one will last so wish us good luck and keep us in your prayers.
