Easter/ Dance Recital

I figured I should get my blogging fix in before we head out to D.C. It could take a while before we get I wanted to get caught up!

Easter was so much fun this year! (despite the furocious wind that gusted for hours at the desert) We did our usual, and went out to the East Desert to ride four-wheelers at the dunes. Our clan was a little bit smaller this year, but we had a blast! Their were Ma and Jer, Dust and I, Brandon and Steph and their 3 kids. When we got their the wind was so strong that we decided to go on a ride in the truck until it calmed down a little. Wind that strong, and sand do not mix well. It's like little needles hitting your body...not fun!:( Going to the desert has been a tradition since I was a little girl! I love it so much! It never seizes to amaze me how beautiful it is, and the stories that took place there fascinate me! It is definitely one of my favorite places in the whole world!

Dance Recital

Hadlee and Kayla had their end of the year dance recital this past week. I was able to make it to 2 out of the 3 nights! The theme this year was Disney. They all did such a great job with the characters and the dances! Hadlee is involved in jazz and ballroom and she does such a great job! Her partner in ballroom is Garrett Jensen. (I work with his mom in her Kindergarten class) It is hilarious because Hadlee watches the older kids dance, and next thing you know she is flipping her hair, and swinging Garrett in all different directions. It is so funny. I swear he had to have had whip lash by the time the 3rd night was over. It was so cute to watch!

Her Mary Poppins Dance

Brynley, my cousin Maghan's daughter, is in tiny tots, and she is the cutest dancer ever! She absolutely loves being on stage. What a doll!

Landon and Kim's little girl Jakell is also in tiny tots, and she was blast to watch! They have the cutest little personalities and boy do they show when they get on stage!

Everyone worked so hard to get the splits for the recital, and EVERYONE did it! It was so funny to see all of the shocked people in the audience.

Kayla and Kimberly dancing! They did a great job!

Had and Shandee

I decided to take my niece Shandee to the last night of the show. She had so much fun! She kept asking me if she could dance, and one time she about went on stage! I could not believe how well-behaved she was. The show was two hours long and she watched the whole thing! What a cutie!
