I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. We spent the day Monday at a Lavender Festival at Lavender Ridge Farms outside of Gainsville, Texas. It was neat because I've never gone to one of those farms where you pick your own produce, flowers, etc before this. They had a large field filled with lavender plants and you got to walk around and pick your little bundle full. It was pretty picked over since it was the last day but we still managed to find plenty. They also had some antiques, plants, and of course arts and crafts. It was a nice afternoon except that it got a little too hot towards the end and the Sweet Pea got tired. But it was a lot of fun and nice to spend the day with our family. I'm definitely going to be looking for more fun things like this in our area.
While we were there a reporter from the local newspaper came by to take a picture of the Sweet Pea cutting lavender with her grandma (my mom). She said if they use it in their story she will mail us a copy. I thought that was pretty neat, hopefully we'll hear from them soon.
