First day of Preschool

Tannon started Preschool the middle of August, she could not wait to start school! She loves school and getting to see her friends ever day, she was kinda bumped that most of her friends from last years preschool weren't going to be there cause they started kindergarten but I told her there would plenty of other new friends she could make. It was fun a couple of days before school started my mom came out and took her to the mall to buy some new outfits for school and to lunch which got her really excited to start school cause she had some fun clothes to wear that she picked out!

This is a picture of her right before I took her to school the first day in the outfit she picked out and could not wait to wear the first day of school! She has been such a big helper this summer, I am so lucky to have such a good girl. I miss her everyday when she is at school. Its funny everyday I pick her up she asks me "Did you miss me again, mom?" and of course the answer is always yes. Sometimes I tell her I cried the whole time she was gone and its so cute she gets this big girl look and starts to lecture me on how she is a big girl now and she has to go school to learn and I can't cry, it to funny! I love her so much!

4th of July weekend

Every year we head up to the cabin with the whole Anderson family for Heber's 4th of July weekend. They have fireworks, a parade and then a carnival, expect this year because of the fire they didn't do fireworks which was a bumper cause they do awesome fireworks in Heber.
This was at the Parade!
Carnival fun!

They had pony rides this year, which Tannon loved! That's all she wanted to do, so we saved it for last so she would do the other stuff too!
Barrett was loving the pony ride too!

All the Anderson grand kids in their 4th of July shirt!

We always have so much fun at the cabin, we get to relax and spend time with the family!

Daniel leaving on his mission/Utah trip

My brother Daniel left on his mission in June, before heading to the airport he came by to say goodbye to the kids! Tannon and Barrett love Uncle Daniel and they always talk about him being on his mission to everyone. It was sad to see him say goodbye to the kids!
Daniel and I really close so it was sad to see him leave but I know he will be an awesome missionary!

So my parent flew him to Utah a week before he had to enter the MTC and stayed with my cousin so that they could have a family vacation before he left, it was fun my brother Christopher who is lives in Idaho for school drove down for a couple of day and then it worked out perfect to were I could go which was so awesome. I drove up with Davids aunt who was in town visiting and then David surprised me with a ticket home. David actually setup the whole thing, it was so nice. I have such a awesome husband. It was so nice spending time with my brothers. I had so much fun. I had never been to Utah before and it was so pretty there.
So as soon as I got to Utah we all went bowling and then out for frozen yogurt. It was girls against boys and who ever lost had to treat for yogurt and of course the girls won:)
Yes my brother Christopher looks like a weirdo standing like that!

So the next day my parent gave us kids money and told us to go out and have bonding time as siblings and of course I took no pictures, sad! But we went to the mall and looked around and tried to figure out what we wanted to do and we decided we would go out to lunch and go to the movies and see the new X Men movie that was out! I had a lot of fun with my brothers, I am so lucky to have such awesome brother, I love them so much!

The next day we did some shopping and then we all went rock climbing, I had never been rocking climbing and I have to say I had a blast.

Then the day before Daniel had to go to the MTC my parents, Daniel and I went to the Salt Lake Temple walked around and did a session and the went for a light lunch and ice cream.

The last day was a sad/happy day dropping my brother off at the MTC. I am so proud of him for going on a mission, he is going to do such a great job because he is such a hard worker and so kind and caring about others.

I had a fun time in Utah. I am sad I didn't take that many pictures cause we did so much and had a blast! Thanks Alisha for letting us stay with you!
