Matt and I headed over to the Fiesta La Ballona in Culver City on Saturday. The festival, celebrating the region's early settlers, has been taking place annually since 1951. The weather was perfect, and we had a blast! I love old school carnival rides, so we were sure to take a spin on the Kamikaze and Tilt-a-Whirl. The Ferris Wheel, however, was skipped. One of my biggest fears is riding ferris wheels, and I can't tell you how many times I've ridden them only to completely freak out in the process. I just don't like to be up that high while moving so slow...crazy, I know, but I can't help it! We also devoured some fried pickles. Mmmmm...fried pickles.

This backpack is pretty much my new favorite thing. I found it a couple weeks ago at an estate sale and just had to keep it for myself. It's perfect for carrying around my camera. Plus, the fun colors! Also, it has a secret zippered section in the side which is great for stashing my wallet and sunglasses without them getting lost in the big main compartment. I think it'll be getting a lot of use.
