so long to the groves flea...

the rumors have been flying around and around for a very long time...
 
the groves flea at the great park is coming to an end after next month...
 
apparently, the great park/the city of Irvine no longer wants to allow us to have the flea market at the great park due to the developing of homes that are going to take place on the location we set up at...
 
we all know that the great park is massive in size and there is a lot of locations that we could set up and have our flea...
 
but, they are not allowing us to do that...
 
there is a farmer's market that sets up every weekend and if our flea joined them once a month, we could grow and thrive...
 
the great park/the city of Irvine could charge for parking and make a lot of revenue for the city...
but apparently they don't want to do that???
 
baffling???
 
there are a lot of people that make their living off of selling at the flea market!
there are a lot of people that depend on that monthly income!!!
there are a lot of people that own shops and depend on buying from us at the flea market!!!
this seems like another government rip off!!!
 
it's super sad that a flea market has to come to an end after so many years...
 
the concept for the great park was ALWAYS designed to provide family fun/concert venues/sport's park, etc...again...money seems to be the center of this conflict...
but,
this could be worked out...they could put us in another locale at the great park in Irvine...
 
if you feel the same way, please, please, please send your letters, emails and phone calls their way...

easter at the beach...

we had the best easter ever!
we decided to do something a lil different this year...
we invited friends and family to the beach for easter...
most everyone made it and we had a blast!
the weather was gorgeous!
the family and friends were a joy!
and,
the food was great!!!
it started off with steve and i rising at 6 to get the trailer and the bikes down to doho/capo...
with much anxiety and anticipation, we found a great spot...
dropped the trailer,
set up the tables,
and,
got ready for the group to show up...
we made some lemon scones in the trailer...
went on a long walk...
and then they started showing up...
our family and friends we adhore...
went for a bike ride...
ate and drank....
watched the sunset...
had a bonfire and made yummy smores!
a great time!
we are very blessed to have such special people in our lives...
i hope you all had the easter of your dreams...
we did!
