After a 1 year hiatus, we decided to try our hand at the Annual New Boston Easter Bonnet Contest. When we first entered the contest 5 years ago, the competition was virtually non-existent. Mostly just bonnets with a little bit of decoration. Year after year the entrants step up their game. This year was a tough one. Making it even harder was having to make two different bonnets. One for Charlotte and one for Maeve. We let the girls know that its all in fun and that all that matters. Deep down, dad knew his creative mind couldn't take a loss. With his brilliant idea and the girls creative touch there was no way he was going to lose.
The good news is despite not winning the MegaMillions, the girls did each win a coveted spot in each age group. Maeve with her beekeeper bonnet and Charlotte with crazy bird lady birdcage bonnet. Next years entries all already being dreamed up by dad's crazy brain.
Crazy bird lady!
Metal birdcage was a little heavy for her.
Finishing touches on the bee keeper bonnet.
Walking for the judges.
Her first win!
