    I didn’t recognise you in the pics, lovely memory; lovely costumes. Did you win the race?
    (Do like your mom’s shoes).

    Hubby wants me to perm my hair like that again.;-)

    I was very fortunate, a very creative friend made many of the ballet costumes too, I was just recently contacted by her on Facebook.

    LOL We didn’t win, we almost didn’t finish, but we had great fun despite the weather.

    I love her shoes, her feet were smaller than mine, so she could wear dainty high heeled sandals.

    Great fun. I totally enjoyed listening to the ‘Itsy bitsy teeny weeny’ song again, too. Well, you had to fit a bikini in there somehow! 🙂
