On the itinerary for our summer is to meet up with Steven, Amanda, & Kates tonight for dinner. We head out to Florida to see my Andrea, Ella, parents, and grandparents for a week. Then its off to the Crystal Coast to visit la playa (had to thrown in some random Spanish) and great friends. After a stop off at my seminary to raid the library, we will finally end up in Virginia. There is a wedding at the end of summer somewhere, but that seems too far away to think about.
