Roald Dahl Day! 100 Year Birthday Party!
13th September 2016 marked 100 years since the birth of the world's greatest storyteller, Roald Dahl...and if that isn't a good excuse for a party we don't know what is!
Nicki (One half of the Yard Power-Duo) had a vision...or perhaps I should say a dream, of a Roald Dahl - inspired Wonderland! So Ronan, Nicki, Jamie, Ken and I set about making it happen. Armed with pool noodles, duct tape, modroc, paint, wire, a glue gun, and an education streamed to us via YouTube we began...
Some thought us foolhardy...and indeed, as the gluegun burns and expletives muttered increased (mainly by me I have to admit), I may have agreed with them. But we kept going and on Tuesday our hard work was unveiled![caption id="attachment_469" align="aligncenter" width="625"] Willy Wonka himself made an appearance! As did the BFG...[/caption] [caption id="attachment_471" align="aligncenter" width="625"] And we were joined by the kids from St Patrick's Primary School![/caption] [caption id="attachment_472" align="aligncenter" width="625"] And Mr Wonka gave them all treats because they were so great![/caption] [caption id="attachment_473" align="aligncenter" width="625"] Though he did leave the box unguarded...[/caption]
The glue gun burns were worth it :) Possibly the best day in the Yard.
