Labor Day Weekend and August's Tea Swap

I hope that all of  you had fun and relaxing Labor Day weekend.  My family and I had a great one together in San Diego.  On Saturday we started it off by me attending a craft class at Papertales while my hubby and kids had lunch.  I made deco den art.  Aren't the projects cute?

It was so much fun making them that I think I am going to add deco den  to my hobby of crafting.  After class my family and I went to some of our favorite places to eat and shop. Before heading to our hotel we went for fluff ice at Icekimo.  My hubby and I shared a passion fruit one with toppings and our kids shared a lychee one.

On Saturday we went to LEGOLAND.  Besides going on our favorite rides and visiting with the Lego Friends we had apple fries (This is what we enjoy during each of our visits.) we had a crepe filled with strawberries.  It was onolicious.  All the things they make there with legos always amazes me.  Here I am in my new purple car.  (Those of you that know me knows that my favorite color is purple.  It would be fun to have a purple car for a little while.)

After LEGOLAND we met up with my daughter's best friend from school and her family at Extraordinary Desserts.  Their pieces of cake/pie are huge and very good!  My hubby and I shared a tiramisu,

my son had a crème brulee tart,

and my daughter had a passion fruit and kiwi cake.

On Monday we went to the Mayan Exhibit at the Natural History Museum.  It was awesome!

We also went to a Japanese Tea Garden.  It was beautiful.  We felt like we were in Japan.

We made one last stop at Icekimo before we went home.  This time my hubby and I shared a moncha green tea fluff ice and our kids had the lychee one again.  Before ending this post I would like to share what I made for my tea swap partner Sandy last month and what she made for me.  I made her this card

and Sandy made me this awesome card and ATC.

Have a fun and relaxing weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Your deco den art is out-of-this-world CUTE and colorful!!!! I just googled "fluff ice" and that sounds super delicious and refreshing. To have all the fruits added sure makes them "deluxe." The purple Lego car suits you perfectly well. You look so happy in it. :-) As always, the dessert pix are making me drool. I would love to try the Creme Brulee Tart. That is a BEAUTIFUL pix of you and Benson. You and Sandy shared an awesome swap. Bet you were both smiles receiving each other's crafty projects. Have a fun and crafty weekend.
