Janna went to Ventura Beach for the day with the Sierra Ward Young Women

Later that night Janna was off to a party. It was there that she borrowed TWILIGHT from a friend. She soon returned it and borrowed the second book, NEW MOON, before going on our Arizona trip. Reading has occupied a lot of her time during the break.

Our arrival in Arizona meant everyone
had to take a turn holding Baby Ryan.

Hugh took the opportunity to visit one of Billy's Seminary classes and observe him in action.

Later that morning, Hugh and I went to the Mesa Arizona Temple for the first time. My parents were sealed in this temple nearly 57 years ago.

In the morning a group of us went on a hike in the Superstition Mountains.

Later that afternoon Sam, Becky, Hugh, and I played a round of minature golf at Golfland.

After discussing TWILIGHT with Janna, Bill, and Chelsea - Becky purchased the saga. Becky started reading it and so did I. Janna happily moved on to book three, ECLIPSE.

Billy and Ryan Mae Blair on her blessing day.

It was a great visit to Arizona. We came home March 30th with the kids missing an extra day of school. We visited with family and friends. We ate great food and enjoyed walks to the park every day. We played some games, played music, listened to music, watched basketball, and enjoyed each others company. We might not get to see Ryan in a while. She'll grow up so fast, but we have some great memories to keep.
"When you look at your life,
the greatest happinesses
are family happinesses."
