My Wonderful husband and I went to the Riverside County fair in Indio because my husband favorite band, Switchfoot, was playing. We got in the park for under $20 and we got to see Switchfoot for free! Crazy! Let me just say this, I have been to the LA county fair and this fair was just as awesome.

|These Turkey legs are HUGE|
And this is a video of Switchfoot covering sabotage by the beastie boys.
Just for Nick. He loves both of them.
So next time consider going to the Riverside County fair. I wasn’t disappointed at all. Oh wait take that back. This festival is also called the date festival, as in dried plums, and I couldn’t find a vendors selling date shakes anywhere. Next year I’ll try again.
My sister in-law’s cousin, Alexandera, turned 15. In the Mexican culture that means the coming of age for a woman. In celebration of this landmark most young woman have a Quinceañera. Almost always these parties are a big deal and are very similar to a wedding. Big dress, flowers, attendants, ceremony/mass, reception, dancing and cake. I have never had the chance to experience one before and this is what came of it.
This is the church where the ceremony took place
|Here she is all decked out. Look at that amazing dress with the gold stitching! All the Aunts and Grand mothers wore a bronze colored dress. You’ll see one later.|
|It was a full mass(service).|
|This is the beautiful car that Alexandera came to the church in. Her and her attendants left the ceremony in a party bus.|
|Lovely table decorations. This reception was way more fancy then my wedding.|
|This had to be my favorite part of the whole evening. There was an amazing mariachi band. They were such talented singers and musicians. I have also never seen a mariachi band that had a harp.|
|After a good amount of dancing there was a father daughter dance.|
I hope you enjoyed that. I had so much fun and I hope to attend another one.
