So, I have discovered that Beaver Falls sucks! There is nothing to do, and it seems pretty ghetto. I have yet to hear anything good about the town, and have yet to discover anything good. I am going to be moving to Cranberry Township soon, so much better, and they have a Chick-fil-a by the hotel. It looks like I am only going to be able to go home every other weekend, so Cynthia and the kids will be coming down during the week to visit. Its so hard being this far away, but its hard to pass up work when times are hard.
It was pretty funny talking with some of the other people on the project, it seems like we have worked with several of the same people in the past. So far, it is going good down here, I just wish it was closer to home. It would be nice to be able to spend the weekends with the family on the pontoon boat, doing a little fishing. Guess I'll just have to find a place down here to use my fishing boat. Hope all is going well with everyone reading this.

Well, I finally got the call! I'm headed to Pittsburgh on Monday, our 5th anniversary. I know bad timing, but what was I to do? I'll make sure to get some pics of the mini road trip down. Now if only we can find a house on a lake down there, we'll be set.

Well, after spending all afternoon trying to figure out how to re-assemble the engine on the pontoon boat, it still did not start. Now I have to go back through and try troubleshooting a few things before I succome to defeat and take it to an actual mechanic. Normally, I would have done that by now, but since I have nothing better to do, I figured I would give it a shot.

Well, I found out late last night, I will NOT be going to Texas. However, I did find out today that I am going to starting a new project up. The first few weeks will be hard, as it is only commission based pay. After that, then it will be back to a normal day rate pay. We're hoping to get this project going strong so we will have work for awhile. Wish us luck.

Hello all. Sorry it took so long to get this up, but I have been very busy with the boat this past week, more on that later.
Tuesday, before we left for home, we decided to take the kids to the Boston Children's Museum. But, before we got there, we had an awesome beakfast with Alan and Amy. I have never seen pancakes or french toast that big! When we got to the museum, there were several field trips there, so it was really packed(packed with annoying little(and big) brats). After lunch time however, most of the kids had left and Travis and Jenna were able to enjoy the museum much more. I could not believe how big the museum was. We could have stayed there all day, if not for a 6 hour drive we would have. There were a few things that weren't all that great, and a few things closed, but it was definetely worth the price of admission.
After dealing with Travis and Jenna throwing tantrums for about a week, it was the first nice day we've had in awhile. If we end up living out here longer, we want to make it back again in September, when there will be less people in town(hopefully!).

Greatings all. We arrived in Boston on Sunday evening, after a VERY LONG DAY! Monday morning we left our hotel to go walk the Freedom Trail and see many of the historic sites in Boston.
It was very humid out, and I think thats why it took us awhile to figure out where we were supposed to go. Once we got our bearings, the day started to get a little bit better. There are so many things to see on the trail, that we did not have time to see or take pictures of everything. It is also a little hard when you have two young children with you. We had a great time seeing all of the historic sites, I just wish we could have spent more time looking at each thing. Hope fully we will get to make it back here again soon so we can see some of the things that we missed or were unable to see, the USS Constellation is closed on Mondays :(.
We leave tomorrow morning, but not before a quick trip to the Kid's Museum. Travis was really looking forward to going there today, but we were all way too tired to go.
