Last Monday, July 17, we spent the day in Campinas with our dear friends, Mark and Ivelisse Grover. They will be completing their mission in August and returning home to Utah. We will certainly miss them! We went to the huge marketplace which in the center of Campinas. Booth after booth of fruits, vegetables, flowers, spices, cheeses. This booth had every kind of bean you could think of!
This past weekend was the Feira do Dolce, festival of sweets. There must have been 40 booths set up at the Praca Matriz, all filled with all kinds of desserts and homemade candy. Top two pictures are of the people enjoying the festival and the band that played. There were four musicians, they all played different types of saxaphones. The music was amazing. Bottom two pictures, Al and I chose the crepe booth, delicious!

The purpose is for the schools to raise money.
Pictured above is Sister Barrus with Natalia, who is a school teacher and her school had a booth that sold brigadeiros (a favorite Brazilian candy). Sitting next to Natalia is her finacee Sergio. They are such a fun and wonderful couple.
Saturday night the different schools performed a dance on the stage at the praca. Pictured is Natalia's class right after they performed a dance around the maypole. They were dressed in beautiful matching long skirts In the back you can see Natalia.
That day happened to be our 46th Wedding Anniversary, we thought it was quite nice they had a festa on our anniversary!
