When we say we have LLF’s all around the globe it was not just saying it. As I post and share our moments we get invited to peoples homes and we create awesome memories. This time we got to create memories with Mrs. Twyla Bright. We met in 2000 in Ghana before our oldest daughter was born… so it was so wonderful to be able to bring the kids over for her to see how much they have grown. Such a blessing to have people like her in our lives throughout the years.
Twyla is also an amazing teacher and was able to have us come and have our girls speak to her class which was 5 different classes of 9th to 12th graders at the Poston Butte highshcool. Our girl shared their adventures of traveling and being homeschooled and also inspired the kids about taking responsibility and motivating yourself to do what needs to be done. It was really fun watching my girls inspire and watching the other kids just fall in love with our girls. So grateful for this opportunity we had.
Then we spent our weekend doing some fun stuff like breakfast and tour at the olive mill. We got learn all about the great olive tree and our all time favorite of how olive oil become olive oil. Did you know the oldest olive tree is about 8000 years old? Yeap that’s right… also when you plan an olive tree it take about 2-3yrs to start bearing you some olives. Amazing right.
I had not idea you can even buy chocolate olive oil and so many other varieties. We got to try some and also able to buy some.
After we visited the pork shop… the variety of bacon alone was overwhelming for me… it’s basically a butcher shop that butcher all their meats on-site. We got to tasty they yummy burritos which is make with pull pork and some tasty green chili. By the time we are done we got so stuffed that a nap was needed and so we return home for that well deserved nap.
Overall our time in Florence, sun tan valley and queens creek was surly one to remember. Thanks to Twyla for inviting us into her home and hosting us so grateful. Here are some moments we got to capture during our trip.
