Weekend in Montana

We had a great trip up to Montana a few weekends ago. A family friend was coming home from his mission so we thought it was a good excuse to visit with family and take a little road trip. It is so much fun watching Anna get more comfortable with everyone as she gets older. She is one loves granddaughter and great granddaughter.

Anna Loves to Play

Playing in Grandma April's laundry, jumping in her jumper or on grandmas lap for a cookie from Grandpa Rich, and enjoying a new friend at her first play date. She loves to interact with others and make new little friends. She tried to crawl over Elinor and give her some slobbery kisses a few times but really did great for her first time around another small human. I'm so excited to see what kind of friend she becomes to those around her.

Micro Fashion

She is so much fun to dress up and put into fun clothes. She also is the best at getting her grandmothers and aunts to buy her clothes. Hopefully she has a sister so I can enjoy these all again. 

While in Montana Anna got a big surprise, lots of spring and summer clothes from Grandma Erica. I don't think Anna was nearly as excited to play dress up as I was.

The Malt Shoppe in Provo

After getting Kim's housing situation for the fall squared away we stopped at this gem of a place. The Malt Shoppe. Its been around for years, like my mom went on dates here over 25 years ago. Its such a fun vintage spot with pretty good food and any flavor of shake or malt you can think of. After 10 minutes of going back and forth I finally decided to get a pistachio shake. It was pretty good, really sweet, but good. So, if you find yourself in Provo, definitely stop by and order a hot dog, you won't regret it.

A Niece

Anna is one loved niece, granddaughter and daughter. She has no cousins or siblings and gets to be the constant center of attention. She has a very small circle of people she is okay being around for any length of time and its a pretty tight family circle. I am so excited for Kim and Megan to get home and join in the fun. There is nothing better than seeing how much Anna is loved.

Monthly Trip to IKEA

We realized that we go to IKEA every couple of weeks. Its just happens, we go to shop, look around, idea hunt, or for a warm place to walk around and enjoy each other. The bigger Anna gets the more fun she is to take to IKEA. She can actually enjoy the furniture when she is not interrogating  Clint under the spot light.
