The street party, Sunday afternoon, was lovely. The sun shone (not that it has done much else this summer) and the neighbours came. Some came on foot, some came by stroller and some came by bike.
Our street is a crescent with a shorter portion (called "The Court") cutting across it, so that the top of the crescent becomes a big "D" shape. The children decorated their bikes, and were asked to ride slowly around the D in a parade of bikes. Somehow, it turned into the "Tour de France" with the big kids doing about 10 laps as the little ones on trikes valiantly tried to make it around once. We stood and cheered.
I finished my second sunhat, in time for that party. (see the first one here) It was actually finished 2 days early! No sense in rushing these things. The hats became part of the prize selection, with prizes awarded throughout the party. I expect that I will see the hats around the neighbourhood, shortly.
Here is sunhat #2, in the classic Dino look, popular with most children under 5.
Sort of a French Foreign Legion look, very vintage!
And the back view:
As well as a view of how dry it is in my backyard. If you have any extra rain, could you send it my way?
