We had one amazing, wonderful and satisfying weekend. So much so, I literally forgot to blog. (I hope I blog on our trip in a few weeks. Maybe I’ll set an alarm to remind me? 🤷🏻♀️)
Curly Cook started the weekend off by buying and wrapping a wedding gift for her primary teacher Julissa. She was invited to attend her wedding on Saturday.
It was held at a private property with no shade. We all got some “red” from the sun. But the experience was lovely.
The bride actually bought a temple dress and converted it to a wedding dress. It was tastefully done and VERY affordable! Brilliant idea!
After the wedding, we prepared to feed lunch to the Elders and Sisters the next day. GingerSnap made a lasagna and I made lemon bundt cake and some homemade jello. But we didn’t set the table because we were expecting company to stay over that night. We just didn’t know whom they would be, nor how many would be coming?
Because this AMAZING performing group traveled to Costa Rica to perform for many of the Stakes here.
We were so blessed to see them perform and hear some of their inspiring stories. The costumes were amazing, the dances thoroughly enjoyable, and the night highly entertaining. We left with three amazing strangers who quickly became our friends.
They slept over in Joy Boy’s bunk bed, and on our library couch. Joy Boy hoped to take his new techie/sound guy friend home, but he was married and was staying in a hotel with his wife. Thankfully Joy Boy supported us using his bedroom for our guests. Thanks big guy! 👍🏻
The next day (Fast Sunday), we all woke up early to feed these hungry men waffles and scrambled eggs, then took them on a quick tour of the property. Paul drove them to the temple for church and then joined us for church in our branch.
After church we fed the missionaries and then Paul took GingerSnap to Seminary while I worked on Family History (I founds TONS of baptisms for our temple visits in Utah🎉🎉). Then we had our dear friends Spencer and Sofia, with his sister and nephew, over for 7 Item Sunday! We had a blast.
The next day, we took off the day from work and school and traveled with Spencer and his family to the hot springs at Termales del Bosque (2 hours away). We enjoyed the drive by finishing up our family read-our-loud “Esperanza Rising”. Spencer treated us to dinner at a Columbia restaurant. It was a FULL weekend. That’s why I haven’t blogged. Forgive me.
PS – Elder Whitchurch is a much happier missionary. Thank you for your prayers for him. We appreciate you! 💕
