Mormons helping hands

Last Saturday members all over California were assigned to different parks or shorelines where they did various things such as planting flowers, cleaning up trash, removing weeds etc. The group I was in was assigned to a new playground where we planted about 700 plants. I have to admit that I was not too cheerful to be up at 7 in the morning but as the day went on it was really fun! It was fun to be with groups of families all working together. The fun part is that Kristi Yamaguchi's foundation donated the playground to the park. It was a lovely suprise to see her as well as her husband (who played in the 1996 Olympics-Ice Hockey) planting plants with us the whole time.

A little bit of a creeper picture but hey I always feel so awkward asking to take a picture with someone "famous"

The creepy stalker photo is the best.

And the weather looks so perfect. Perfect for planting flowers.

And as always you are so so pretty!
