Atlantical City

This past Sunday and Monday I was invited to Atlantic City with my best friends family. It was perfect to get away and have some fun. There were pools and sunshine, drink and too much food.

Family Hike

Today was rare, Scott had off and I got out of work REALLY early. We decided to go to a local trail and hike.


We covered 4.5 miles of empty trails. It was perfect.
