We Love You Jack

Bobbins' brother Jack was in a terrible motorcycle accident last week on I-10. Unfortunately, he wasn't wearing his helmet. He's currently heavily sedated and in a coma in the ICU. He has severe brain shearing, and there is very little chance of brain recovery. For what happened, his body is actually in good shape. But it looks like he's never coming back.

This is a nice picture of him doing what he was great at, pools, with his beloved dog Sophie.

I know I've been remiss in keeping this up-to-date. We had some travel in late May and June, and Bobbins' phone broke, and we lost a bunch of photos and videos. Sadly they included JoJo's ballet recital and TK graduation. There isn't much excuse for missing July. I'll try to catch up over the next few weeks. In the meantime, here's a great pic of the 4 kids.

Am Girl Doll Store

The other part of MM's gift was a visit for tea and cupcakes to the Am Girl Doll Store in Scottsdale with her friend Sienna.

7 Party

That night we had dinner and presents for MM. T Fish was already down so he missed the excitement. Her big gift this year, which she earned by not sucking her thumb at night for the 2 months leading up to her b-day, was her own American Girl Doll. They are expensive for just being a doll, but she really wanted one and worked for it. The look on her face was pretty priceless, so it was worth it all the way around.

Breaking Into 7

MM had her 7th birthday recently, and did our usual tradition of breaking out of her room. She got to open one present in the morning, and chose Julia's. It was a very pretty dress all the way from Brasil.

Grandma & Grandpa Visit

On their way out of town the Sunday after the SOTH Tournament, Grandma & Grandpa stopped by the house. It was windy and a little chilly.

SOTH Tournament 2016

Played in the annual Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church charity golf tournament again this year, out in Fountain Hills. Unfortunately, our organizer, Steve, fell ill and could not make it. Zach very ably stood in his place and made a lot of great shots for us. He also got yelled at for hitting a guy's roof. He had one great drive taken away by the 4some in front of us because it bounced a couple times and hit one of them, a kid, who took the ball and threw it over the road. We found two of their clubs, though, so it evened out.

I hit a great drive on this hole. Had just enough fade to get around that big tree on the right. I'm pretty sure we birdied it with the short approach shot, even though we struggled in that area all day.
