Cakes for a birthday party.

Heading to Ica for our Zone Meeting.  Poor Sister Bellitti, the person in front of her leaned their seat back and she was stuck in there!  They finally had to crawl out and change seats.

They took their bags for an overnight stay with the Sisters in Ica. 

During Zone Meeting, Sister Mostert was reviewing missionary health concerns.  Each group had to either mime, sing, tell a story, make a commercial etc talking about a missionary health concern ie. diarrhea, personal hygiene, water intake, eating habits etc. 

   Our group got to tell a story about getting diarrhea.  We did a spin off of the 3 bears with our health secretary as Goldilocks.
This group ended up having to do a commercial for personal hygiene. Fun Times!

 Our zone this transfer consists of: our hermanas Baderrama (Bolivia) and Mostert (USA), Bellitti (USA) and Onate (Equador) Our zone leaders E' Chicoma (Peru) and Calle (Bolivia), E' Roca (Bolivia) and Wahl (USA), E' Peterson (USA) and Pena (Domincan Republic), E' Vergara (Chili) and Brown (USA), E' Mitchell (USA) and Gastelo (Peru), E' Alcantara (Dominican Republic) and Siesquen (Peru)

We found a car willing to give us a ride back to Nasca - hooray!  No more bus today! Curt's knees were very very happy!

The driver took an older road instead of the PanAm Sur Highway and Curt snapped a pic after we went through this narrow one way tunnel.

Our decorating committee for a Luis' birthday this week. 
As a missionary, I am not supposed to hold the adorable little baby girl running around but I did get a minute to cuddle the new little puppy.

Awwww  Now you can see why I want to hold this precious little girl!  Danna is about 8 months old and the Serveleon family babysit her.

This is Luis, Leonor, Danna, and Leonor's parents.  Mrs. Serveleon made a big dinner and I made a couple of pineapple upside down cakes and cups of jello for the party. 

Agusto, Me, Curt, Luis and the Serveleon siblings (Mirella holding Danna)

As we were out walking by one of the schools, they were preparing to start a parade celebrating their schools anniversary.There were floats, costumes, and music.  The parade routes always seem to go around the Plaza de Armas.  

A cuy character and a group of girls dressed as Minnie Mouse.

Maybe they just had their makeup left from earlier this week's day of the dead activities.

We made a trip down to Marcona this week.  Both of these little guys are getting ready to be baptized.  Curt got visit with one of them in an interview as he's getting ready for his big day.

Since we were already in Marcona, we asked Julio to drop us off at the beach for an hour before we headed home.

It's always fun to explore the tide pools and see what interesting critters we find.

Curt had been following a huge crab around trying to get a picture.

I was entertained and also enjoying the beautiful view.  There is something about being at the ocean and looking out at the horizon. 

Tide was coming in and we had to time our dashes out.  We made it and then I wasn't paying attention while we were walking and I ended up with wet shoes anyway!

Nasca is making huge changes to their fair. We've noticed they started blocking vendors from sites that they'd been using.  This is one of the new areas where the vendors will be assigned to set up. They were out there on Saturday chalking off the areas and assigning spots for the fair on Sunday.  It'll be interesting to see the changes. 

These sweet gals were bringing someone in for a family history appointment.

Families - that's what it's all about!

This lady had a big fire and caldron set up in the street near our home.  Hmmm, what's for lunch?

When you forget your are working on the computer that isn't hooked up to the printer but you need to print out what you've been working on - you adapt!

I had to take this selfie to show off my new shawl!  Sister Yolanda made it for me. What a sweet lady!
