Hoops On A Playground

I’ve had a long week and am feeling like silliness is about all my brain can deal with posting for the moment. Plus, I’m ready for summer, or at least spring. So here are some silly pictures from last summer that I’ve been waiting to share until just the right moment. They bring a smile to my face and I hope they do to yours as well! Bring out your inner child and enjoy!

    What a lovely idea! I always thought that crinoline dresses would restrict what women could do. You certainly changed my mind on that one
