Happy Halloween

So sam went all out for Halloween this year. Our porch was too scary for kids to even come close to trick or treating at our house... (chain saw massacre man, spiderwebs, blood, flashing lights, fog, and scary noises). Also, My sister jess had a party accross the street and sam won the best costume contest!!

I love this Place!

We live 15 minutes away from a fruit farm that allows you to come and pick fruit, veggies, and even Christmas trees on your own. They give you a little hayride on the back of a tractor to each spot and you pick your food and just pay for it by the pound.

On Sunday we got to go to a Phillies game. After 20 minutes into the game it started to down pour and so we had to wait 2 hours until it started again...but it was okay because we somehow walked into the Hall of Fame Club (restricted for club members only) on the second floor and got to sit on their padded seating and eat their exclusive ice cream while we waited. Oh and the Phillies did pull through for the win against the Atlanta Braves.

Sam is Number ONE!!!

Sam is ranked number one in the company for most installs! Last week he beat his best week by installing 32 systems. That is so awesome!! Sam is working very hard and i think there should be a grand prize for the number one tech:)

New York

This is a picture of Sam's first trip to New York. We visited the Empire State Building, Ground Zero, China Town (got a purse for $16) and we walked around Time Square all in one day(well more like half of a day). Before the summer is over we will have to visit the Statue of Liberty.

Watch Sam Rise to The Top!

Apx has hundreds of technicians and Sam is ranked number 2 in the entire company for total installs. Sam has 200 installs and we are about half way through the summer. Way to go sam!! It looks like he is only 8 installs away from being number one. We will keep the blog updated if any changes happen in the next couple of days.

Apx Pool BBQ

Thanks to the wives we ate some yummy skewers!
Diving for money can get a little crazy... next time i will be subbing in for sam because i think i could have scrapped up more money! Just Kidding! Sam made us $20 BUCKS!!
Sam looks pretty buff with his shirt off.
Thanks Apx for the food and money. Sam installs better when his tummy and pockets are full.

Kelty, Ellie, and Cody playing in the sand.
Beach Bums
Over the weekend we went to the New Jersey coast. Wildwood beach has 7 miles of boardwalk with carnival rides, games, waterparks, and shopping. We enjoyed relaxing on the beach and riding the Thriller! (a wooden roller coaster on the boardwalk).
