Carnival photos - Part 3

Tuesday, May 29, 2012

Children's Parade - two items to note:

1. My dad likes overview photos, but we were up on the second floor looking down - I prefer close ups that create little vignettes. So photos are some of both.

2. Notice how some of the kids - and the next few days, the adults - are what we'd think of as overweight. Yet they're still in little Carnival outfits, dancing in the street, having fun, and not being self-conscious. THAT is my goal!!! I think many of us need to learn that lesson - that our size shouldn't stop us from having fun!

Okay, photos:

    The children are so beautiful...thank you!

I agree with you. Media has done a job on our psyche about what is and isn't's not about size, it's about healthy and a larger stature doesn't mean you're not healthy. If we can get past the images pushed on us I think we'd all have more fun AND end up moving closer to our goal of healthy.

    I know - the Children's Parade is so much fun because the little ones are SO serious about it!
