This is how Briz pronounces Utah. And by the way, anyone who doesn't live in Oregon, lives in Utah, according to Briz.
So here is what we've been up to:
First Two Weeks of July we drove out to Utah. The first week we were there, we went to Bear Lake for a Cottle Family Reunion. The bummer thing about that trip is how almost everyone in our condo got sick. By an absolutely miracle, Nick, Briz, and I didn't get sick. Hallelujah! I don't think I could have handled it. I was already exhausted and frustrated that I couldn't participate in most of the activities. My favorite thing about the week was seeing Briz play with her cousins, Libby and Kloey. They loved each other and it was so cute to see. All week they were yelling each others' names because they were so excited to see each other. Briz also loved following her "big girl" second cousins around.
Nick flew back to Portland and I stayed for another week. I hung out with the Sharp family and also got to see some of my friends there. Anna was like my personal nanny for the week, so I got extremely spoiled. It was fun to see Daniel, Carly, Meredith, Mary, Amander, Sam, and Maggie, and others. I even went with Sam and Mary to my last pre-pregnancy concert: Ben Fold's. It was fun trying to see how many people I could disgust with my big belly dance moves. I was pretty successful I think. Briz got to play with Sadie; they had fun swimming, and she still talks about Sadie and Baby Elise living in Utah. We miss Utah and all of our friends and family there. But next summer, I will be able to do so much more since I will have my body back. Woohoo!
