Catching up with family and old friends!

This August has been a great month for Brent and I.  We have had the opportunity to go on much needed vacations to San Diego and Utah.  In California we had the unique and wonderful opportunity to spend time with Brent's cousin and wife Graham and Rhandi and also some of Brent's closest college buddies Wade and Clint.  In Utah, I had the rare opportunity to go to lunch with some of my closest High School and college friends; Becky, Jay, Cristy, and Linds.  It was so much fun catching up on each other's lives.  My only regret is not taking a picture :(.  I also spent some good time with one of my best friends, Becky and her adorable little boy Tucker.  

We feel so blessed to have been surrounded with such great people over the years.  Our wonderful family and friends have been such great influences in our lives and we are grateful we had the chance to spend time with some of you this past month! :)

Anderson Reunion in San Diego

My favorite part of our reunion in San Diego was being together with my whole family, which doesn't happen very often.  It doesn't help that my brother Jeremy and his family live on the opposite side of the country in Delaware.  Every time I see my niece and nephews I can't believe how fast they grow.  There are actually a few missing from this picture.  Jeremy's youngest, Wyatt and Nicole's little baby Maci.  I also have a niece and a nephew on the way.   

Wonderful day at Disneyland!  Brent and I, my sister Lauri, two brother-in-laws Matt and Dean, and two nephews Nicholas and Noah all went to Disneyland together.  My favorite part of of our day at Disneyland was watching my nephews laugh and scream on the rides.  We couldn't get on Splash Mountain until the evening and went on it two times back to back.  We got so wet and didn't dry for the rest of the night!  It was great! 

Our Day at Sea World!

It was so hot at Sea World we all got a little dehydrated.  After living in Washington for a few years I wasn't used to the heat.  It felt great getting splashed by Shamu!

Entering the world of blogging!

I have to admit it's kind of exciting entering the world of blogging!  To give a little update of our lives... Brent and I have had an extremely busy summer thus far.  It started out with me graduating from the University of Washington in June and shortly thereafter my in-laws left on their mission to Alaska.  It has been fun for me to get to know them better over the past couple of years while living only 40 minutes from them in Seattle.  We will miss them but I know they are needed Alaska and will be amazing mission presidents there!  I have been really busy with a teacher training course that I have been taking this summer.  I am training to be a Montessori teacher and I can't wait until the training is over.  Brent has been busy with work and is finally done with his project in Denver :).  Hopefully he won't have to travel for a while!  We are doing great and are looking forward to some vacations that we have planned in August!
