Thursday~ We went to a Santa Clara vs. UCLA soccer game. It was a very physical game, the goalie got a cleat to the face and the game was stopped for about 4 minutes while she recovered. The game was tied, 0-0. No pic's as I forgot to bring the camera
Friday~ Had dinner with my girlfriends and our hubby's at our favorite Italian restaurant owned by one of our friends. We discussed what time we would be meeting the following day for the Taste of Morgan Hill Festival. We sell food, drinks, and t-shirts to help fund our GNO (Girl's Night Out). We didn't do as well as we did on the 4th of July but it was an enjoyable time and the weather was great.
Saturday~ Taste of Morgan Hill + Soccer game (scrimmage)
Sunday~ Taste of Morgan Hill
