Advent Day 18...

Activity: Have a picnic in the local park, listen to the carols & watch the fireworks.

Carols in the Park 2009

Tonight our local council put on it's annual carols. Luckily the weather was perfect, so we loaded our picnic basket in our trusty cart & headed out.

The night finished with a spectacular firework display, that some of us enjoyed more than others, but overall it was a really special night out with the family.

Oh what a gorgeous unhappy face! I hope she at least liked seeing the fireworks.

Lovely photos. Looks like a great night, even if the fireworks weren't with with everyone.

I remember doing that every year too, going to the carols in Queens Park or at the big Christmas tree. We attempted carols for the first time this year with Cohen, but it started to rain after 290 minutes so we headed back to the car! While we were there we only heard one Christmas carol, but many kids songs and old songs. Didn't feel very Christmassy! We missed the fireworks, but that may have been a good thing! Who knows how a one year old will react to them too? :)

My daughter would be doing the same thing! She is 2 and hated the noise at the wiggles concert we just scored free tickets too. We haven't braved Fireworks yet!

Tania said...

Oh, Oh, Oh...POOR Lo!

Don’t s'pose the firework trauma cured her of pinkitis and she's embracing gingham yet?

I love that last picture! I have hated fireworks my whole life, and this must have been (and probably still is!) the face I pulled each year, when we went to Firework shows!
Shes so cute!
