My last entry told about our trip to Hawaii, we were home for one week and then we left on one of Rob's Temple Trips. We flew to Kansas City and went to Liberty Jail and Independence, Missouri. We went to Branson for a few days and saw three shows. While in Branson, our son Scott from Arkansas came and stayed with us and spent the night. We went to Oklahoma City and attended the Oklahoma City Temple and on the same day drove to Dallas and attended the Dallas Temple. The next day we went to San Antonio and went to that temple and enjoyed the River Walk there. Eveything there was fantastic. The next day we went to Houston and enjoyed spending some time with my niece, Kim, and my nephew, Craig, and their families. We also went to the Houston Temple before returning home. We were home a few days and Bob and I left for a driving trip to California to see his sister, Sharon, his brother Johnny, and his step father. On the way we went to the Reno Temple and while in California we also went to the Sacramento Temple.
We were home for about 10 days, then we went to Park City for 3 weeks. The first week my sister Janice and her husband Dave went with us, the second week Rob and Chrissy and their family came for 2 days, then Rhonda and boys came for the rest of the week. On Saturday everyone that lives here in Utah came for a Bar-B-Que for Father's Day and stayed over night since we had two rooms that night. The third week Jen and her family stayed for 3 days and Julie and her family stayed the whole week.
We were home for 5 days when Scott flew in for a week visit from Arkansas. While he was here Todd and Rhonda and family came for a few days. While they were here, Tammy came from Germany for a visit. So you can see we have been busy, busy, busy. But it has been a fun time to have everyone here. Coleen, even though she only lives a few miles away, has spent some nights here just to be with everyone. Rob and his family have been out of town and has missed all the fun. They left the day after Scott got here, so they got to see him beofore they left. The plan is to see Tammy tonight before she leaves to go home on Thursday. I was hoping to have all 7 of my children in the same place at the same time, but that just didn't happen because of all the different schedules everyone had to keep.
Anyway, that is what has been going on at our house for the last few months. Hopefully things will slow up a bit and I can manage blogging more often.

Coleen came and spent the last week with us. It is always fun to have someone come who has never been there before. She went snorkeling with Bob in the mornings at 7 am. I didn't think she would get up to go that early, but she did! I think she really enjoyed it because she was ready to go again the next morning and the next also. We took her up to the volcano and she enjoyed the ride on the steep windy road up through the clouds. It was nice and clear at the top of the volcano. We enjoyed going to a luau and also going on a whale watch before coming home. I got some crocheting done, some of my mother's journal typed, and read, read, read. I read the books Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipse. The next book in the series doesn't come out until August. I guess I'll just have to wait patiently to read it. So, Aloha, until next year -- I hope things work out so we can go again. Actually, we are going again at the end of October on a cruise of the islands.

This is the Club Regina where we own a timeshare. You need sunglasses just to look at the bright building!
I love the tropical vegetation that is here.
You can get relax around the pool, under a cabana, or a hut on the beach.
It was so nice to get away from the snow and cold weather. Mexico was the perfect get-away place for us. Bob retires in three weeks, so this was kind of a retirement get-away for us.
