Now despite all of my very best intentions to actually write a fashion post for Shiny T Tuesday ... like you're supposed to ... I simply couldn't find a single thing in my wardrobe that reminded me of a carousel in the slightest.
So I took the opportunity to reminisce a little instead.
Here's Master 16 back in 2000 ... when he was Master 2.
This was taken at the Royal Easter Show ... exactly 20 days after Master 13 ... then Master 0 was born. We left Master 0 at home with my Mum ... which was the very first time I had left him ... and took Master 2 out for a special day.
He loved the merry-go-round ... as you can see ... but chucked an impressive sized tantrum when he realised he couldn't ride it endlessly.
Here's Master 13 ... then Master 3 in 2003 at Dreamworld on the Gold Coast.
This was our first "proper" family holiday. We stayed in a fancy high rise hotel and did all the touristy things. The kids loved it. They still class the Gold Coast as one of their favourite holiday destinations.
As you can tell ... Master 3 was rather fond of the carousel as well.
So was Master 16 ... then Master 6 ... but he was trying to play it cool.
Is there anything more joyful to a kid ... big or small ... than a carousel??
At least Master 3 colour co-ordinated his shorts with his prancing pony ... as did the lady in front of him ... so please note my impressive token reference to fashion.
Next week I'll do better ... I promise.
