I had a great time this weekend at the Be Your Own Artist BBQ! Lili Wang Consulting and Be the Light of the Party Foundation hosted the event. Special thanks to Lili for donating all the proceeds to the Foundation. Guests had a picnic of hamburgers, hot dogs, pasta salad, veggies/dip, cupcakes, and brownies. Lili made great cupcakes with homemade pink butter cream frosting. They were so good I had three! I also liked the lemon iced tea - very refreshing. I wrote a special poem for the event called "Parasols in the Park." (I included a copy of it in the previous post on this blog.) All the children received a copy of the poem along with a sun parasol to decorate. There was also a Little Artist Contest, silent auction, and raffle. Peacock Parade was one of the raffle items. Some of the guests enjoyed a paddle boat ride on beautiful Lake Galena. It was a day filled with food, fun, art, music, friends, family, and charity. I included some photos from the BBQ below and also a link to the photo album here:

Also, forgot to mention there is a place called the Peace Valley Lavender Farm near the park. It is a nice place to visit if you are in the area. I purchased a lavender plant, some culinary lavender, and also some lavender honey. Very yummy! Now I just need to create a recipe!
