All Glammed Up...

So I was sitting out the front early this evening having a glass of wine, watching the kids playing at the park and commenting to myself on the unusual amount of traffic circling our park. Then gradually the park turned from this...

to this...


It was a school ball / prom for one of our local private schools. Very exciting stuff for my little seven and five year olds to watch!!! There was a rainbow of beautiful coloured dresses that the girls were wearing. They all looked stunning and they were having a wonderful time. My kids were so excited to watch all the limos roll up. This is the first limo...a Ford Territory, then there was a Hummer (very cool...) and two black Chryslers. I couldn't take any more photos because I was starting to look like a bit of a stalker....you know....weird neighbour taking photos of young adults all glammed up...



I couldn't help but reminisce about my own Year 12 ball...was it really eighteen years ago??? Surely not??? Seems like only yesterday. And I was thinking about these young adults heading off to have the night of their lives...will it turn out to be all they dreamed of??? I hope so!!!

time flies doesn't it. How wonderful see all those gorgeous kids on the threshold of the rest of their lives.
Glad you enjoyed your glass of wine.

Scary isnt it. 21 years for me - cant believe I'm admitting to that.
I've tagged you if you'd like to play along. If you've done it before I completely understand.
Cheers

It's a small world - we recognised your local park - we live nearby! Love your blog.
