Its Carnival Time!

Yes, Carnival season is here again, and last night was St Breward. Last year at St Breward it rained torrentially, this year was much nicer, and we were able to take the roof off the car

The girls took two second prizes, which was nice as it will be their last carnival as Royalty, Eloise officially "retires" as Queen in a fortnight when the 2009/10 Queen takes over. (Sorry this pic is a bit dark)

I'm looking forward to a year off from being "Queen Mother" though we will no doubt do something else for this year's Carnival.
And so she doesn't feel left out, here is Naomi last night (looking every inch the Scary Emo Kid) Finally I've been having a little play with some driftwood and shells. Naomi calls them "Mermaid's Gardens"

Thank you for sharing such lovely pictures of your girls, I bet you all had a good time, I love the idea with the drift wood and hope you did well at the exhibition. I was wondering if you could show a larger photo of your seaside garden it really looks beautifu from what we can see.
