the walnut festival
went to the walnut festival this weekend.
been hearing about it for quite some time now. basically, it's a really cute (and outrageously expensive) carnival that makes its way to walnut creek, ca every september, every year. people around here pride themselves on the walnut festival.
i'm not gonna lie: i was expecting walnuts. you know- walnut tasting, maybe some walnut syrups, walnut cupcakes, walnut cookies. but as luck would have it: there weren't any walnuts at the walnut festival. not a single one. just carni's (a term i just learned this weekend), cotton candy, carousels, balloons, and expensive games for cheap prizes.
oh, and don't you forget the fun.
the festival was lots and lots of fun!
ellie especially loved the red balloon she got for free at one of the booths.
i guess we could've just gotten a red balloon at the nearby drug-store.
but that wouldn't have given us half as cute of pictures.
and, i'm obsessed with cute pictures.
but you already knew that :)
hope you're enjoying your weekend!
