June Rewind: Greek Fest

For as long as I can remember, my family has gone to the local Greek festival in early June. My great grandfather actually came here from Greece when he was 12 or 13 (lied about his age and came here by himself!!). But regardless of the heritage link, who doesn't love Greek food and a couple hours of music and dancing?! Some of our friends joined us and it was a perfect early summer evening.

every kid's favorite Greek fest tradition: Loukoumades!!
(delicious little dough balls soaked in honey
and sprinkled with cinnamon... heaven!)

Charlie was not shy about his love of loukoumades!
