Welcome to the family, Matthew

We have a new Grandson, Matthew Clark Glad. He is the first son of Bruce and Tara, weighed eight pounds and was 21 inches long. We now have a full dozen Grand kids, ten boys and two girls. We are so excited when June comes and we can make it a Bakers dozen. Todd and Shelly will have their first child.

Our post mission life is still good. We have rejoined the fitness center and are working out on Monday, Wednesday and Friday of each week. Marlene doing water aerobics and I am power walking and lifting weights. We have found that keeping in shape is very important for Seniors to feel good and keep healthy. I am now serving as the Weblos Scout leader and instructor in the High Priests Group. We have applied to serve in the new Draper Temple.

We went to the annual Travel Show at the exhibition center to wish about our next big trip. We are thinking about going on a Cruse off of and in the north east part of the country in the fall when the leavs are changing color. Most of the trips start in New York go to Boston and New England, then up in to Canada. There is also a Bus tour of Costa Rica that would be nice. We really enjoyed it when we went there a couple of years ago. Our life is so good.

vacation, vacation

We spent the last week and one half on a vacation away from the cold and snow. We did our favorite thing "cruising" along the Mexican Riviera. Good food and warmth was wonderful. Marlene loves jewelry so we spent most of our time in the ports we visited buying pretty things for her. The best thing about this type of vacation is the pampering and entertainment and of course the food. Marlene likes to do some dancing before dinner. The musical productions were great, good clean fun.

It was good to spend time with our family in California as the cruse ship left from and returned to LA. The grand kids have grown up so much. Going to church with our family in LA was great. It is just too bad that it all had to end.
