and on to the festivities...
My family didn't have anything spectacular planned, but it still turned out to be fun! (i am just happy that i got 4 days off of work...it was a nice break :o) ) Lauren had heard about a Strawberry festival near Disneyland...so we thought it would be fun to go and see what it was like. i mean i LOVE strawberries :o) Let's just say it wasn't anything great at all...it was actually quite a joke. well i guess to what we expected it to be. it was just more like a carnival with a few booths of strawberry desserts and what not. But it was still fun just walking around and hanging out with eachother...and better than just staying home! we also stopped by this little park across the street and watched the ducks int he pond...and we discovered lots and lots of turtles! they all just had their heads popping out..it was kinda cute :o) and then after that we had to stop by a 7-eleven because we kept telling matti we would get a slurpee after since she didn't get to go on any of the rides. hehe. and i discovered a crystal light slurpee that was good! woohoo...lower points on WW :o)
so after the festival we went home and had a BBQ. yummy, like always! :P and then just chatted and spent time together. Family time is always fun!!!
Saturday, May 29th my ward had a Relief Society 'herbal tea party'! haha, yes we had to say herbal :o) and it was SO MUCH FUN! We had it at Sister Laidlaw's house (who is the second counselors wife) and let me tell you...her back yard is gorgeous! and it was just a gorgeous day in general..not too hot and not too cold, just perfect weather. Sister Laidlaw and the relief society presidency spent alot of time and preperation making it look wonderful! There were several different herbal teas to try (which i found out i am not too fond of tea, but still fun to try) and lots of little yummy finger foods. Then they shared how tea party's started and a cute poem. And then all of us girls just chatted away for several hours. It was such a fun Saturday afternoon activity!! :o)
