But we left them with Shane and Angela, the trusty babysitters, while we went to the party. There was great food and lots of entertainment, but the highlight is always the stilt-walkers who wear parts of the traditional Kittitian carnival costumes.
The fireworks alerted everyone, whether they were asleep or awake, that a new year has begin. As predicted, they were loud and close to our house, actually going off above the house. As predicted, Damon was scared, and wouldn't go outside on the balcony to watch. What we didn't know would happen was that Damon would lock Brennan and the babysitters outside!
What better way to begin 2011 than with a walk on the beach.
