Well we are back from our trip to Utah. We had a lot of fun and so didn't want to come home. It was so good to see family and friends. Usually by the end of our trip I'm really ready to go home, but this time I really could have stayed a couple more weeks. Brianna had a really fun time seeing Grandma & Grandpa Anderson again and meeting her aunts and uncle. (I'll post more about our trip later.) Since we've gotten home Brianna has had a rough couple of days. Let's just say I think she got a little spoiled in Utah. She got constant attention from everyone while we were there and I think she's missing it. She's been really fussy since we've been home and every time you go over to her to see what's the matter she just smiles at me, like saying "stop ignoring me". She just wants to be held all the time. Which is kind of weird because she was almost too overwhelmed in Utah with everyone and we'd have to just lay her down on the floor and leave her alone for awhile. Also her sleep schedule is so messed up right now. She adjusted really well to Utah time, even falling asleep early at 8:30/9:00 every night (which is 6:30/7:00 Alaska time), but now that we're back home she's having a hard time readjusting. We're doing okay at keeping her awake as long as we can without a terrible meltdown, we've made it till 9:00 the past two nights, but she wakes up at about 3 or 4 in the morning and thinks it's time to play. After rocking her back to sleep 3 times in a row last night at 3:30 she woke up again and thought she'd tell be a big long story. I try really hard at night to keep talking and playing at a minimum, but she was wide awake and it was hard not to smile at her really exciting story that she was telling - it went on and on forever. I keep telling Justin that it's a really good thing she's cute cause this is getting a little annoying. Oh well I guess that's the whole point of staying at your grandparents house - to get SPOILED! :) She loved it!

Here are a couple of pics from the first couple of nights that we were there. My little sister Kristy had a softball game the day we flew in, so we decided to start Bri off on a good old Anderson tradition and take her to the ballpark.

And then on the 24th of July we went and saw the fireworks in North Logan. Brianna loved them! She'd start fussing when there was a pause between fireworks and as soon as they'd go off she was mesmerized. Too cute! Then we had a family firework show the next night - also a fun Anderson tradition.

I wish you were here all the time too! Well, as long as I'm here too :). I have no idea how your beauty got one made that big of a deal about here did they :). I'm glad we could finally see each other after a couple trips of us missing each other. Come back soon.
