Strawberry Festival

This past weekend my sisters, Emily and Hannah, decided they wanted to come visit and go to the annual Ponchatoula Strawberry Festival. So, the gang was here: Emily, Jeremy, Annelise, Hannah, Daniel, and Jeff and I. It is always so much fun! There is a parade in the morning, carnival rides, carnival games, lots of booths to buy some local crafty stuff, and every form of strawberry delicacy you can imagine. One of the contractors for Jeff's work always rents out one of the pavilions so we have free food, drinks, dessert, tables, and most importantly restrooms! lol
We ended up buying some strawberry wine, strawberry jam, strawberry bread, and a large palate of fresh strawberries; not to mention the fresh strawberry daiquiris we had while we were there!
Oh ya! I can't forget the Strawberry King and Queen! lol
That night we had some friends over for dinner and Jeff and Jeremy made some strawberry shortcake with the fresh strawberries we bought at the festival. We opened on of the bottles of wine and had a wonderful time visiting with everyone.
We had a blast and I am so glad that my sisters were here to visit with us. I am truly blessed to have such a close relationship with them. I can't wait until next year!
Here are just a few pictures of the festivities:
