Friends 3/2 - 3/8/17

We have been having fun with friends.  Thursday the Wilcoxes came for lunch.  They flew in Wednesday evening and stayed with the Floyds.  We would have liked to spend more time with them but needed to get ready for MLC and the Stewarts were coming Thursday night.  
Friday morning we drove to Santa Barbara to attend a district meeting.  It was fun to include the Stewarts.  We then drove to Solvang.  We have never taken the opportunity to walk around Solvang, always driving directly to the church.  

The lobster wrap was delicious.

I don't know why I didn't take a picture of the bakeries; there were so many.
Saturday we golfed at RiverRidge on the Vineyard side. Best ball is the way to play.

When we drove into the garage after golf, Rich saw a lizard go in.  Dell and Rich were able to get it out.
Dinner was pizza and a salad at Toppers.
Sunday we went to the Ventura 2nd Ward.  We were glad we did because we heard testimonies from the Floyds.  That was their last fast and testimony meeting here before leaving.
Neighbors together again.
Diane and I read the Ensign each month.  She invited Raynee to join us and we share some of our thoughts back and forth.  I thought it would be fun to take the picture of us and send it to Raynee.  I'm looking forward to meeting her.
Sunday afternoon the VanLeeuwens dropped by.  (It was planned.)  They spent a couple of days with all of their family at Disneyland.  Since they were so close, they drove up to see us.
Thanks to the Hales, we had the last of the Kneaders bread for breakfast.  This is at the Cross where we take the new missionaries after flying into California.

The VanLeeuwens left from the Cross and drove to Solvang for the day.  The Stewarts left around 11:30 to catch their flight out of LAX.  We spent the day working more on MLC.
Tuesday VanLeeuwens helped with breakfast for the leaders in our mission.  We ate at the mission home and then went to the mission office for the day.  VanLeeuwens followed us so they could see the Floyds and then they went to the Ronald Regan Library.
We enjoyed sharing mission stories.
We have been blessed with truly wonderful friends!
