Weekend with family/Latino Festival.

This weekend was an eventful one! Friday night we had a teacher's get together at church for all of the life group teachers, so it was nice to hang out with Dave and Lindsay (our co-leaders) for a bit!

Saturday was a huge day! The De Jong's were here. Elizabeth had won an award, so we had to go to the Latino Festival downtown for her to accept it. As part of her graphic design class, they had to create the design that would go on the flyer for the 2015 festival next year, and hers won! So, we spent the morning downtown, and after that Brad and Elizabeth headed back to OC so she could get back to school. 

I had never been to the Latino Festival before- it was quite the experience! There were hardly any people there yet because it was in the morning, which actually made it kind of nice to walking around. Unfortunately, the food we tried wasn't the best. The woman at the stand convinced me to try this authentic sweet milk type drink, and it was not good. I also requested mild salsa on my taco, and it was mouth-burning spicy (though, I do have a very sensitive mouth for spiciness). Oh well, it's all part of the experience!

Dessert made up for it. Kley and I shared this gelati thing, which was like vanilla custard mixed with mango ice, and that was really yummy!





After Brad and Elizabeth left, Kley headed home because he had to play at church that afternoon, so Jana and I headed out for a big shopping spree! We went to lots of places- Buy Buy Baby to get a few last items from my registry, Furniture Source to check out sectionals, Younkers for purses/luggage, and Pottery Barn Kids to pick out the specific items to go along with our bedding. (We have one picked out for a girl and one for a boy, since we don't know what we are having.)

After that we took home Cheesecake Factory for dinner, and Jana helped us pack up some things from our apartment to take back to our house. It was a long day, but it was really good too. I feel really good about all that we accomplished!

Today we had church, then lunch with my family, and tonight we have our small group fall kick-off. Hope you all had a good weekend!
