A berry-pickin' good time!

Well, here we are in Utah, and we are having a great time! The kids can't get enough of Grandma and Grandpa's house. Today after church, a quick trip to the urgent care for some stitches (sorry, Ev) and naps, we took the kids outside to pick berries in mom and dad's berry patch in the back yard, and boy did they have fun. Here are some fun pictures:

Ryan helping pick berries with Grandpa and Grandma:

Calvin LOVED the blackberries. I love the string of drool connecting Calvin to his berry in this picture:


Grandma showing Calvin the ropes:


My favorite picture--Calvin showing me a flower he picked:


Calvin also loved the popsicles:



Grandma and Ryan picking peas:


Happy Luke:


Then the boys rediscovered the water fountain...which led to a water fight...


Then of course Grandpa got involved:


Love this one of Luke running away from Grandpa's hose:


The boys and I also got to go see Liz and Erik and meet sweet baby Elliot. Ryan LOVED holding him and Elliot and Liz were both very brave:


The Anderson Family! SO cute!


Anyways, we're having lots of fun. More updates to come. WE MISS YOU MICHAEL!
