On May 20th we blessed Dalley. My whole family came to Circleville for it. My cousin Tasha brought my grandma and grandpa to it. My parents were impressed with the good people in my ward. My mom even said she wouldn't mind living here. I am sure that has nothing to do with being closer to Dalley. Dalley was blessed wrapped in a shawl that my Great-Grandma Hatch made for me to be blessed in. He also wore a cute little pair of cowboy boot booties that my visiting teaching partner made for him.

In June we went to Moab for the Hatch family reunion. We didn't have very many people show up but we had a great time with the ones who did come. Shawn and Stina drove to Circleville then we went to Moab together. We love spending time with them. At the reunion we spent a lot of time playing cards cause that is what Hatchs do. Some people went golfing and some went to arches National Park. One of the days we went to La Sal where my dad had lived for awhile when he was a kid and my grandpa worked in the mines. On the way back to Moab we stopped at Hole in the Rock.

In July it was back to Alamo/Hiko for the 4th of July. We went down to my grandma's house to watch the parade like we do every year. My grandparents even had a float it was really cute. Then we spent the rest of the day in the house playing cards. Shawn and Stina came for the weekend and we had a BBQ. It was a lot of fun.
