Lavender Festival


Well I got back from Kids Camp on Wednesday... OH MY GOSH that was so much fun... I think everyone should go to kids camp at least once... (yes even the adults) Well Saturday Morning my mom and I headed over to the Peninsula for our annual Lavender Festival trip. This is the second year I have gone and I really enjoy getting to spend some mother daughter time with my mom.. We went with my Aunt and cousin and a group on my cousins friends... Linda,Kim,Me,Colleen,Sharon,Pam,Carolyn,Patty,Ann

Last year when I went all I took was pictures of the Lavender.. This year I took pictures of things in the lavender...

We had alot of fun eating White Chocolate and Mint Lavender ice cream.. drinking lavender lemonade and tasting honey infused with lavender.... I think the best part is spending the day with my Mom, Aunt Sharon, and Cousin Kim.

What a great way to end my vacation!!

Wow, that looks like fun, it must smell good too! So, lavender mint ice cream? Is it good? I have never heard of it before! :)

Hey, are T.J. and Keny gettin' excited for camp? It should be great! I am game master once again so I will have a great time watching them all get dirty! Remind them to bring some grub clothes...

I love Lavender! We have this tiny little lavender plant that has somehow managed to survive in my front yard, but I wish I had a big one--like a field of it!
good to see your recent blog post. I was about ready to put you on my abandon blog list!
Just kidding. I don't even have one of those....
