My dear little girl is so fun to be around. She gets into everything. My make-up, food, Dvd's, kitty food. Bad news! But I have never been so happy. She says "whatyadoingmom?" 200 times a day. I try to answer but I am afraid most of them go unanswered. She loves baby dolls and cats. She runs and tries her best to keep up with the big kids. She loves them very much. On the first day of school she asked "where Margaret go?" It will be an adjustment but I am glad to have her alone for a few hours of the day. I am so happy she is ours!

City of Rocks!

The best place to climb on rocks bar none. We had a great time meeting the Mayos! When Clara and Ashtyn saw each other the looked like they were going to run and hug, but just before they stopped and looked at each other and said "Hey, we are both wearing popsicle shirts." Darling. I love when these two get together. Looking forward to the next time.

 The worst picture of the most incredible thing I have ever seen. We were so happy to be at Carl and Julie's home. Right in the path of blackout. I was excited and thought it would be amazing, but it defiantly exceeded my expectations. I have heard that some people were quiet and solemn, we were not. We were happy and giddy and so loud. It didn't last long. but I guess that is why it was so special. I enjoyed seeing a 360 degree sunset. I loved seeing the diamond ring. I missed the cool lines on the ground. Shucks. The drive home took double the time there was so much traffic. but all so worth it. Carl and Julie were incredible host. I hope we weren't to much of a burden. WE are hopping to go to the next one!

8 is Great!

 He is Eight. He has finally pulled out his two front teeth! He is kinder, smarter, taller, and accountable. We have such love and high hopes for John. He succeeds every day. The next year is going to be great!

 Ron and Ginny have gotten bigger and are so adorable. It is hard to tell them apart. Some birds have built a nest under our porch. Ron and Ginny climb up on our umbrella shaped tree and swat at the birds as they try to dive bomb them.  It is humorous!

Fourth of July

Our 4th was memorable and hot! During the day we drove out to Balance Rock and climbed up the step hike. It was not something I will do again holding a toddler but so fun! We had a picnic and talked did a ritual to help us learn and remember what our nation stand for. The kids understood it and we plan to do it again! Maybe you can do it with us? When we got home we watched "A More Perfect Union." It was great and helped us wind down until it was time to head over to the Shaw's house. They had a great party and we were so glad to be invited. Happy Independence Day!

Anderson Family Runion 2017

 This year we had a great time in Island Park. Not everything was 100% ideal but we were happy to be together. I tried to put the photos in chronological order and tried to cover as much people as I could. We rafted down Henry's Fork, went on a hike to Coffee Pot, went horse ridding, did bells, danced the Virginal Real, and played Bang. It is wonderful to be a part of the Anderson Family. I am happy they are mine. Fun, kind and smart people. They work hard and are pleasant to be around.
