This was our first trip to Utah since last summer, when Eliza wasn't even talking yet. So, this trip was fun because she grew really attached to everyone. She would ask where people were when they left the room, and she hasn't stopped asking about them for the past month. She asks about them, she draws pictures of them, and begs to call them on FaceTime. She loves her family, and it makes me happy to see how much that love develops when they are actually together.

We had a lot of fun with them. We went to the Bean Museum and the Living Planet Aquarium. Eliza was obsessed with her uncles, and rolled around with them in the living room. She really loves her cousins, and even let Nola carry her around in her arms. 

We got to celebrate Sam's birthday, in the Gray tradition with a favorite meal and a big chocolate cake. Eliza loved helping Grandma cook in the kitchen, and even got to wear a tiny apron. 

We even happened to be in town when Anthony got his mission call! He has been called to serve in the Lubbock, TX Mission- and leaves any day now! We are so proud and excited for him. It's weird to think that Eliza will be four years old when he returns.

I feel pretty blessed to have amazing in-laws. I fell in love with them the first time I came to Sunday dinner, when they couldn't stop smiling because Sam brought home a girl! They have always taken me in and made me feel at home, and I love how much they care for Eliza. I feel lucky to be a part of this family!
