my favorite tradition is visiting our local italian festival each year on labor day weekend. we love the great food, the atmosphere, and the memory that it was were ryan and i went on our very first date back in 2004. this festival is like a religion to me, it's totally my happy place!
we headed down to the italian festival on saturday afternoon (wearing my la festa t-shirt) to have some lunch. we went at the perfect time because the weather was awesome and it wasn't crowded at all! on sunday night we went back down for some dinner and the fireworks, and then we went back again on monday for lunch with our parents!
let the countdown begin for next year's festival! ;-)
