After the perpetual shield is awarded to the best costumed family, everyone leaves Government house down the grassy slopes back to the Kingston compound (the children roll or run down ) where families set up for their own Bounty day feasts.
The Christian-Bailey family and friends are all generously invited to Devon House by Mary and Bernie.
The food is always plentiful, provided by everyone who attends. A real Bounty.
This year, our highlight was attending the Bounty ball.
Teddy and his school friend Brianna decided that they wanted to Dance together this year, but after taking them to a few rehearsals with the older school children, they both decided that it was too hard.
Sienna on the other hand, was just happy to dance around by herself to the music and was delighted to be joined by Eli who was there with his brothers and sister who were practising.
We enjoyed the night even though we didn't dance ourselves (Brandt had an ankle injury).
It was a great excuse to dress up and mingle with the community at Rawson Hall and to watch the children's ballroom dance competition.
