Last weekend we finally had all 4 granddaughters together. Jared and Susan blessed their two little girl, Haley and Kelly. What a blessing these two have been to our lives. They have taught us so much in so little time. Mostly, they have taught us patience. They might have had a early start on life but they are catching up so fast. They are perfect!!! Chloe is a delight, she is our quiet one...maybe because she is the smallest. She isn't very big but her cute little face speaks volumes.
Sienna is so busy, she isn't going to let life pass her by. Her mommy is busy trying to pick a school to go to for Pharmacy. Meg has been accepted into University of Utah and University of Southern Nevada....big decision! Susan just gave us a big announcement...she is expecting!!! She and Jared are going to be very busy. Congratulations you guys!!!

Just the other day, I was working in my kitchen and on the TV I heard an advertisement about
Carole King and James Taylor coming to SLC for a concert. They were singing parts of
their old songs on this add...then she started singing: "'s too late baby, now it's
too late, though I really did try to make it. Something is inside
just died and I can't ...." so on and so forth! This just
spurred a weird memory for me... bear with me:
I'm not even sure how old I was
but my cousin, Dave, had
picked me and Deb
up for softball
we were sitting
in the back seat of his
car and he had the radio on real
loud. This Carole King song was blasting
over the radio and I was just a singing along with it
totally oblivious to anything going on. All of a sudden, Dave just
flipped off the radio and there I was singing to the top of my lungs all by my
self. I was so embarrassed and all Dave could do was laugh and laugh. I love my cousins, but those older boys really had a way of making us younger ones look and feel silly! I think it is so neat the way music can bring back memories some 40 years ago.

We just got back from a great week in Loreto. It was a good week for fishing and sunning and eating. Mark and Bonnie really spoiled us. The fishing was good as long as the wind didn't blow (I guess fish are like me, they don't like wind either!) The sunrise in the morning is unbelievable. We get up at 5:00 in the morning to catch our bate before the sun comes up. The pelicans really love fishermen, maybe they just love the fish that the fishermen catch. On one day we caught 10 Yellow Tail Tuna...we brought 6 of them in to eat. I have lots in my freezer now.
Bonnie has all of us looking for Sea Glass whenever we walk the beach. It is kind of addicting.
It is a bummer to have to go home, but it is nice to get back to the real world too.
