Portland Weekend

Darren's cousin got married in Portland in early April and we had a great time partying with lots of family we don't get to see often enough. Of course, the trip started off with a dip in the hotel pool. We invited Kellen and Caleb to join us. Look at this bathing beauty!First time in the pool with Daddy.Swimming boys! Joseph and KellenJustin and CalebAll the boys together at the wedding. It was an adventure to keep the kids occupied with all the waiting that goes along with a wedding. But they made it through! We had time for quite the photo shoot.Grandma and Erica.Maygan and Matthew. Congrats to the bride and groom!Uncle Val, Uncle Dean (father of the bride), Bruce and Carol.

Anderson/Jolley Reunion (Tour of Erica)

Wow, we had a fun and family-filled trip to Utah! It was actually a recruiting trip that I was invited to, so Darren and Erica and I flew to Utah while Grandma and Grandpa Jolley were kind enough to take Joseph and Justin to their house to play. We started by driving to Portland and meeting up with Carol and Bruce. Then Erica and I flew out of Portland. Erica was happy to see her grandparents again. And the boys were so excited to have sleepovers at Grandma's house!This was Erica's first airplane ride and she was kind of naughty. She did quite a lot of fussing, both times making me stand up in the aisle and bounce her to sleep after screaming her head off. I was glad to not have the boys with me during all of that!Erica missed her Grandma and Grandpa Anderson! Darren is such a sweet Bishop. Everytime he's at BYU on business, he takes the youth from our ward who are now at BYU out to lunch. We enjoyed each other's company and some yummy food.Erica met her Great Grandparents!
