This is the first carnival I've participated in. Well, not really, but it's the first carnival I've participated in where I didn't have to juggle, facepaint, or make balloon animals. Go over to Nerd Family for lots of links to all sorts of interesting places. And while your there don't forget to thank the Nerd Family for putting this all together in spite of a nasty stomach bug going through the family. Get well soon, Nerd Family!
