Apparently all the little villages have carnivals every year. We have missed quite a few, but went along to the one in Staindrop. The funniest part was when the girls were cuddling the rabbits and guinea pigs from the rescue center display. I asked Nathan if he would like to cuddle a rabbit and he informed me he would rather cuddle a giant spider. You can imagine the look of mischief on my face when later in the day we found a tent that had exotic creatures in it...including a tarantula! He looked very shocked as I called him over to look LOL.
