Here is the post about the Nina Dandy:

Thursday night, September 24, 2009, my mom invited us to go on the Nina Dandy...A large boat that cruises the Potomac River at night. It was so much fun and very beautiful and romantic. I had on a new dress and was accompanied by a cute boy:)

It was a beautiful night. The ship left from the pier in Old Town Alexandria and made a stop at the National Harbor and then down the Potomac to see the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson Memorial, Kennedy Center, and other lights of D.C. by moonlight. The food was gourmet and tasted wonderful...

It is shrimp stuffed with crab! We have never had a gourmet meal like that and it was fun being served like 5 different dishes. There was dancing...Ryan and I were the only ones on the floor and all they were playing were slow, love songs. I asked if they would spice it up and put on Meringue music and they did! 3 long, fun songs that got another couple out of their seats. It was so fun dancing. Then you could stand up top and see all the sights...

We loved the evening and we were so grateful to have the opportunity to cruise down the Potomac by moonlight. Thanks mom and dad!

Oh the things to write about...

Home is where ever we have each other.
And we have come home to Virginia.

There are many things that have gone on and many changes that have been taking place in our lives over the last 2 months that we have lived in Virginia...Ryan is currently working 2 jobs: screen printer and substitute teacher for the county. He seems to enjoy subbing, although he has only subbed at 2 different schools and he usually works a lot of hours at Varsity Graphics screen printing. I am working about 40 hours every week for my internship. It is a lot of fun and I enjoy working with the people I work with. We have some health fairs coming up this week and I enjoy getting out of the workplace and meeting people! I have 6 weeks left and then I turn in all the paperwork and I will be a BYU graduate!! Ryan is ready to start school this upcoming January!

We are back in Virginia. Sadly, we have no blogged for about 2 months...I do not know what is wrong with us. I did add a shelfari in honor of my sister Dorothy. We are moved back into the Bairds house and loving life. We have set up our room and we are really enjoying being home. We visit my family every so often and just enjoy being with our parents and siblings. Ryan is set up to begin substitute teaching for the county and is preparing to start school in January. I have started my internship with L&T Health and Fitness here at the Prince William Hospital Fitness Center and it is a lot of fun. I have a lot to learn and I am so ready to be working a job that will be enjoyable and not just "to get by." Ryan feels the same more early jobs or hamburger smells coming off of us!! woohoo...well atleast for a while, you just never know! Goodbye Utah and hello Virginia...Home is where the heart is (and where your sweetheart is).
