A little this and a little that...more pictures from our walks around town. No theme, just fun.
We didn't find any of our favorite donuts in all the booths; some of you will remember those delicious donuts we found one day in a bakery. Good enough to make you swoon! Those were chocolate and filled with a Boston Cream Pie-type filling...yum! All other donuts pale in comparison, just our opinion. It was easy to pass on the traditional ones. Made us feel 'virtuous' (which is funny, as we stuffed ourselves trying out other goodies!)
In hindsight, it's probably a good thing we didn't find our favorite donuts. No refrigeration, that we could see, in the booths and our sensitive tummies could have suffered from more than the sugar overload.
For pictures of previous Corpus Christi celebrations, you can do a search on this and other blogs. The sheer number of goodie booths are hard to wrap your heads around! If you tried to sample all the goodies, you'd be royally sick or in a sugar coma.
Last year, there were tons of bees going after the sugar, but this year, with more rain, not many swarming bees. Seemed easier to get up close and personal to all the treats this year.
Should have gone with the chocolate brownies! We could have pretended the dark chocolate was for 'medicinal and health reasons', right?
The little girl was taking about 3 steps to Mom's 1, maybe headed to or from work at the flower market, or home for lunch? Or, out for errands? Both were headed some place in a hurry...
Matt will remember how excited we all got at first! And, then, how we had to laugh at our silliness. We laughed and teased each other for a good block afterwards.
You can see no yellow tape or warning signs or cones around the dug-up streets...walkers beware!
There were some dicey areas of rough construction and large holes to trip over and into, if you weren't paying attention to your feet. (We definitely were paying careful attention!)
It looks like the workers are trying to decide what color to paint the railings and the posts. We think these are color swatches, not the final paint job....maybe.
(Note Fabian's special umbrella behind the ear.)
You can see we're still walking and enjoying the sights of our City and countryside. Always something to see, enjoy and wonder about!
We celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary this week! (Actually, we've been 'an item' for 30 years.) Thanks to those who remembered....
Here is our anniversary cake, just delicious.
For those who know our tradition, yep, we re-upped for another year...
If you'd like to re-visit pictures of our wedding, you can see here:
Happy 4th of July! Enjoy that barbeque and all the red/white/blue desserts!
We will be spending the 4th with friends here, too, and wearing our USA patriotic colors, too!
