On Saturday our Annual Pageant came to the streets of Adelaide. It was 34C, hotter probably where we were standing; given that we caught the later train and only got to the city centre a half hour before starting time! The only spots left were, of course, in full sun.
I bravely took four kids. The Baby Angel and her two best buds and the Small Boy for whom it was only his second pageant ever as Himself of course, like many fathers, does not DO Pageants.
It was a wonderful time though. The kids loved it. They were sensible and co-operative and were so swept up in the magic that for the most part they barely noticed the heat. I really felt for this guy though. You can't see in the photo but he was sweatin' it up some!!!
Taking photos in ful sun like that is quite difficult and I am painfully aware of how flat the photos look as I survey my results. Photo on photo of yet another float, marching band or dancing girl. I wonder why I bother really as we rarely sit and look at pictures of past pageants (and yes, I have taken pictures at all of them since we returned) but it is so spectacular that I can't bear not to.Here's some dancing girls who weren't quite getting their legs as high as they did at the start of the route!!!
So what did you do for the weekend? Is Christmas coming where you are?
Got to go. Should be leaving for fitness now. Only two more sessions :-(
