Visit With the Marchbanks

After PCC, I went home with the Marchbanks. It was so nice to be able to spend a little time with them!
Here a some pictures of my visit...

This little girl is such a doll!

Downtown pretty!

I got my first caramel apple on Tuesday!! It was absolutely out of this world amazing!
Caramel, chocolate, and toffee...Mmmm...

Sis. Marchbanks bought us girls these little purse hooks...
Aren't they so cute?!

Cherie and me

I hadn't seen them in 6 months so I was missing them a lot! Now I'm back to missing them again, but we've made a lot of memories these past couple of weeks. I had such a good time! =)
I love you guys!

The Last Part of Camp

On our way home from camp on Saturday we stopped for pizza. These were supposed to go with the last post, but I forgot. So here they are. :)
I look like a really pale zombie in these pictures. We were all so tired!!

 It's almost the Fourth of July! I can't wait :) This will be my first Fourth of July (stateside) in about 4 years. 
I'm ready to see American fireworks!

Pacific Coast Apostolic Family Camp in Ventura, California 2011 (Hallelujah, Praise the Lord!) The Wakefield's Point of View. Amen.

Pacific Coast Camp was amazing!! Something even more amazing is that I didn't even pull out my camera until Wednesday night. Thank God for the Marchbanks! Between them, I think there are about 1,000 pictures. So I am "borrowing" theirs. 
Elder Russell Frazier preached the day services and Missionary Brad Lambeth preached the nights. 
Both were fabulous!! Also, the special singing was pretty good, if I don't mind saying so myself. Har har.

Mexican Day! I did not get a picture of everyone that was wearing green and red, but here are the few that we took.....

Again, I'm at a loss for words. :D

She did say yes :)

OMW! Erin is THEE BEST counselor EVER!! If you are thinking of putting on a youth camp, you should  so totally HIRE her! She is FUNNY,  witty, hilarious, a good story teller, and funny too.
She also is really good at calling 911, but if you're *extra thick*, don't expect her to give you the Heimlich.
But besides that, she is so awesome!! My life is forever changed because of her.

Alrighty. I'm so outta here.

Food Was a Nice Invention

Last night we went out to the most fabulous restaurant ever!!!
The Gonzalez family (pastors in Boyle Heights, CA) took us there last year and we loved it. So we went again yesterday with them and WOW!! I've never had food that tasted so delicious. Actually, this past week I've eaten the best food of my life.
Sunday: The Corner Bakery. Chicken noodle soup in a sour dough bread bowl. Roll-my-eyes delicious.
Monday: Las Granadas. I got a Chimichanga. OMW! The best "Mexican" food I've ever had!
Tuesday: Outback. I shared the Outback special. I'm speechless about its goodness. The steak was so juicy and tender! With fresh green beans, ate like french fries. Mmmm!!

Thursday: A burger buffet place. They give you a plain burger and you go up to the burger buffet and put whatever you want on it. It was so fun and DELICIOUS, plus we got curly so good.

So anyways, back to this Thai place that we went to last night.
I have a lot of favorites, obviously, but this place is my #1 favorite!!
Have you ever tried to explain to someone what it's like taking off in an airplane?
Or what it felt like when you were filled with the Holy Ghost for the first time?
Well this is what I'm experiencing, trying to explain how amazingly delicious and tasty dinner was last night.
I just get this really happy feeling and I have no words.
Even in this picture, I look like I'm floating on clouds with these big shrimps.
(Shrimp. Shrimp. Shrimp....
...That's the weirdest word ever).

I have to give honor to Cesiah Gonzalez.
Last year at this restaurant, she introduced Nicole and I to boba. Oh, what a day it was!
We have never been the same since.
I don't know where we would be without Cesiah. Very sad girls, I'm sure!
Cesiah, me, Nicole.

Last year we were told that this was piranha. I found out last night though, it is pampano. Which I have never heard of, but let me tell you...It tastes like heaven with salt!
They even come with their heads attached like in Mexico so I felt right at home.
(I at a whole fish. It was amaaaaazing!)

Chowing down!

So now I'm hungry??
