The 2009 Lompoc Flower Festival is in full swing. Ted and I went to the Flower Festival in the early evening, and despite it being chillier than we anticipated, we had a great time. Most of the arts and crafts booths were shut down for the evening but we were able to ride rides and eat yummy food.
Picture #1: Beth and Ted in line to ride the Ferris wheel.
Picture #2: A view of the Ferris wheel we rode.
Picture #3: We rode the Ferris wheel with two of the cutest girls you ever hope to meet. They were super chatty and their smiles and laughter were infectious. They asked us all kinds of questions and told us all about the different rides they rode during the day. So cute.
Picture #4: A view from the top of the Ferris wheel.
Pictures #5-6: After the Ferris wheel we rode the Himalaya. I have not ridden this ride in probably 15 or more years and it did not disappoint. It was as fun as ever.
Picture #7: We worked up an appetite walking around and riding rides so we indulged in the food. I had Danish Aebleskiver and Ted had a Philippine noodle dish.

It's been at least six years since I've eaten at Sizzle. I broke that streak today. I don't think it will be difficult for me to wait another six years before eating there again. Pictured left to right: Lisa, Racel, Cheryl, Denise, Melanie, Cynthia, Debra, Beth, Lynnette.

Ilaria is growing like crazy, and she showed me how she can roll from her stomach to her back (pictures #: 1-3). She handled rolling over like a pro. After rolling over she spent a little more time on her stomach (picture #: 4) but then she was ready to rollover onto her back. Carolyn and Vince brought Mu some round furry toys from the bay area (they look like rabbit's feet) and even though he could not open the drawer to get them out (believe me he tried!) he was content to guard his toys by sitting on top of the table (picture #5). Little Ilaria loves to be bounced on the exercise ball so I took a turn. I'm not as good a bouncer as her mom, but I was able to bounce her to sleep (picture #6).

Two weeks ago my company decided to stop supplying hot drink cups for employees. I don't mind the fact that my company is no longer supplying hot drink cups, but I do think the delivery of the message leaves a lot to be desired. One day we had hot cups and the next day the hot cups were gone. In their place was a sign reading, "We are no longer supplying paper coffee cups. Please bring a mug from home or use one of the extra mugs in the cabinet." Way to let us know ahead of time.

Ted and I decided to spend the afternoon in Solvang, a Danish town about 25 minutes from Lompoc. The weather was beautiful and sunny and it was a great day to be out and about.

Picture #3: Danish folk dancing.
Picture #4: I had my fortune read by Zoltar. I'm sure my fortune will come true.
Picture #5: Ted and Beth in one of Solvang's pretty town squares.

What a phenomenally beautiful day. Ted and I spent the afternoon in Pismo Beach eating and enjoying the sunny weather. Even though there are many great places to eat in Pismo Beach we always gravitate to Mo's bar-b-que. After lunch we walked off some of our lunch and enjoyed the sights of Pismo Beach.
Picture #1: Pig on a surfboard at Mo's.
Picture #2: Ted chowing down on ribs.
Pictures #3-4: Beth and Ted on the pier.
Picture #5: A fancy sandcastle on the beach.

For many years during high school and college I was addicted to strawberry Pop Tarts. I ate them for breakfast and for snacks. I have not had a Pop Tart in several years and recently when I was grocery shopping they caught my eye so I bought a box. Unfortunately they are as tasty as ever.
