Tony's mother and sister watched the children while they raced and had a great meal prepared for when they finished. On Saturday the children prepared banners and posters to welcome the team home. They all did a great job.
I asked Jodi and Tony if they would do it again. They said it was challenging, but they would do it again. So Hobbs team lets get conditioning for next year. Go Hobbs Team! ( I will watch the children and have a great meal for you when you return.) I will start conditioning for the Tahoe Relay.
Tony and Jodi we are proud of you and your accomplishments. Keep taking the Aleve!
Camden was not quite sure of his Grandma Hobbs. He got this new farmer outfit so when he comes to visit Great Grandma and Grandpa Searle he can show he knows what a tractor is. We became good friends quickly.
I had a great time playing and getting to know Camden. He is a special spirit of our Heavenly Father. I think he will walk and not crawl. He hates to be on his tummy. He loves his mom and dad and they are great parents.
They took me to the temple Sunday morning before my flight went out. It is a gorgeous temple and I challenge all of you to attend the temple nearest you often.
Thanks, Pat and Anndalyn, for a wonderful trip. Of course, it was hard for me to leave and I got teary eyed as always when I have to say goodbye. But families can be together forever. We must keep our covenants we make in the temple and strive to live the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am looking forward to having my children and grandchildren with me forever in the kingdom of our Father in Heaven.
Cooper, our lefty, is also on a T ball team. He wanted his picture taken just like his brother. He is a fast swinger (Just like his dad).
Saturday while Tony took the boys 4-wheeling, the girls and I enjoyed the backyard swimming pool. They played in the sand and the pool and got warm on their towels on the deck. The had more sand in the pool than in the sand box by the time swimming was over. They even had sand in every crack of their bodies. Does this remind you of the beach?

Brekke's only brother and friend sang a song to them. He has a great country wester voice. I could have listened to him all night.
We all had a great time. It was very
company. Jeff never showed and so
we ate his food. (Katie was suppose to invite her friend, but she didn't so we just pretended he was there. They just kept bringing him drinks and his food.)
On Friday June 1st at 1:00 they were married in the Salt Lake Temple. Their sealer, Bro. Woods, did a wonderful job. Jaci got to sit in the Mom's chair and Cheri's grandma sat in the grandma chair. That was a special tribute to Cheri. AJ was teary eyed during the ceremony and I know that Cheri was there with him. AJ was her favorite child and I know AJ missed having her there. She would have approved of his choice for a wife. Brekke is a wonderful girl. Those two are laughing and smiling all the time. The new thing in wedding dresses is to wear a temple dress for the sealing and then to wear your wedding dress out of the temple with a colored sash to match your wedding colors. Brekke was very pretty. Her colors were teal, lime green, and black.
Stephanie is a good mom and is finding out what work it takes to raise 2 (children that is, not a terrible two year old)!
