Lots of things have happened since I last wrote. We as a family went to Philidelphia. We decided to go due to the fact that my job as the janitor for our church(the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints) is being discontinued. Subsequently I had a meeting in a town called Broomall, which is outside of Philidelphia. Well to make a long story short we stayed the night after the meeting, and spent the following day in Phili. It was so fun. We got to see the Liberty Bell, which is much smaller than you would expect, and got to visit the continental congress. It was neat to see where our country first was started. Our family is into history and it was fun for us to contemplate what our for-fathers went through in order for the United States to become what it is today. I wonder how many of them would roll over in their graves with shock at how far away from the constitution many laws in this nation have become. We met a lot of people, not all of them old people. Which is what we thought we would see. It seemed like everyone there felt the same way we do about the constitution and our freedom. We are proud to be Americans. We had Phili cheese steaks, yum, yum (I think Dolly Subs were better). We had fun as a family and it was nice to get away and think of us and only us.
