This week was insanely fun!!
We had a lot of service. To start off we got to go to Coloma National Park and help setup for the California Pioneer Days. That was super fun we got to basically wear p-day clothes for most of the day. We setup for like 3/4 of the day. It was hard work but it was way worth it.
Then on Saturday we went and first participated in the parade. We were part of the Mormon Battalion. We got some fake guns and some olden clothes. It was pretty cool to see all of the work come together. There were about 17 stakes that helped in the planning for this event. Then after that we helped direct traffic so that people would not be hit by any cars. Some of the helpers were from the Roseville Mission. It was pretty cool to be able to talk with them for a little bit. Then Elder Carl Cook of the seventy was in town and we got to see him there. It was a super eventful week. It kind of felt like a brake from the missionary life because I was not in a tie as much as I normally would have been.
Today we went on an awesome hike to this place called Dutch Creek Falls. It was a beautiful and easy two mile hike But we hiked that for a p-day activity and it was a blast. There was some amazing water falls that we saw. It was fun because we had time to relax and enjoy the scenery.
That was the highlight of my week. I hope that you all have a great week!!!
