There’s something about our town’s annual Date Festival that makes the Coachella Valley feel small town-ish. The way the funnel cakes perfume the air, the petting zoo, the ferris wheel…it feels nostalgic and I love it. SO, when our bestie-family friends asked if we could join them at the fair last minute, it was a fast “YES!” from us.
I’m learning that not everything has to be planned out and scheduled. Sometimes, you can just throw PB&J sandwiches in a bag and GO. We spent less than 2 hours there but it was a blast. The kids rode a few rides, we munched on kettle corn and had a picnic in the sun. The perfect way to spend an afternoon, if you ask me.
Also, find people you love and do life with them. If they can love your kids through their fits and share their fried oreos with you, then you keep them around. Love you, Jansma Fam!
PS did you notice my pretty, white camera strap in a few of these images? I’ll share more about that next week!
