Strollin' through the Strawberry Festival.

After sleeping in and vegging out until the early afternoon, Josh and I decided to get our butts in gear and go do something. Josh suggested the California Strawberry Festival. I haven't been since I was little, and it sounded like fun, so off we went.

It was crowded. And dusty. Lots of little kids. And strawberries.


I was hungry. We weighed our options.

Strawberry pizza?


Strawberry nachos?


Hmm. I decided on a tri-tip sandwich.


While getting food, we saw an old friend of mine -- Strawberry Shortcake. Man, I loved her back in the day.


Also saw clowns on tricycles.


There was some live music in the form of a washed-up 70s cover band. Dude was into it.


We decided we couldn't come all the way to the strawberry festival and not eat strawberries. Behold, our delish dessert.


Mmmm...funnel cake...


We wandered around a little more, checking out some of the craft booths. Overall, it was a good event, although the admission ticket price was pretty steep considering it was essentially a strawberry-themed street fair on steroids. Still. It was a nice day.

Yay, I can see the pictures now :) I had a Strawberry Shortcake doll when I was little. I luuuuuved that doll. Strawberry nachos sounds gross, but I'm totally craving for funnel cake now.

It was SO crowded this year. It was insanity.
