Promised Pictures from Dickens on the Strand

I said in last week’s post that I would be posting pictures from last weekend’s trip to Dickens on the Strand. We didn’t stay too long at the event, what with bad boots and tired child…but we had fun, and there were some wonderful sights to see!

We dressed up Saturday morning and headed for the Strand, but needed to stop for some supplies on the way. Like something to carry my things in. That turned out to be a great little basket.

We split into two different lines to see if it moved any faster. Jamison and Lauren discussing the doll Grace and the parasol…

Loved this girl’s outfit. I can so see Jo wearing this in green. Practical and pretty!

Adorable child. She didn’t like to have her picture taken, but I caught her when she was distracted. 😉

Jo definitely needs one of these cycling costumes!

So much more practical than trying to fly in a fancy dress…
