Memorial Day 2014

I love three day weekends. We took it easy in the morning. Caeli had dance rehearsal (yes, on a holiday) from 1 - 3. We picked her up and headed to the National Cemetery where my parents are buried.
 
 The Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts place a flag at each grave marker. It is so beautiful.
 I can not believe that my dad passed away 14 1/2 years ago and Mom two years ago.
 We ate dinner and then the girls jumped into the pool.
 Kianna wants to learn to surf and I am sure she will. The water was beautiful and it was a perfect end to the day.

School's out - summer fun starts!

I can't believe that school is over for this year and Caeli is entering 8th grade and Kianna 4th. How is that possible. The girls have grown so this year. 

 We get yearly passes for the waterpark and we went on Saturday morning. It was a beautiful weekend. The water felt wonderful, the lines were not long and the girls had so much fun.
I am sure we will spend lots of time there this summer.

Co. Dance convention and Competition

The Junior and Mini companies competed at Co. Dance this weekend. Check-in time was 7:30 a.m on Saturday. The girls had classes all morning.
 Kianna started attending conventions this year and loves them. They did jazz, contemporary, hip-hop ballet, and tap classes.
 Kianna joined us on the patio for lunch and then returned for two more hours of classes.
 Caeli and Samantha have danced together since they were 4.
 Classes concluded at 3 and the girls all got ready for competition.
 The mini's do an adorable number called "Bathing Beauties".
 I love Kianna's leap in the number.
 Caeli in "Rock Of Ages:
 Her last number is called "Walking Dead" The make-up and costumes are scary.
The awards ceremony finished at 10.We packed up and headed home. Exhausted from day one.
 Sunday morning the girls had classes from 8:30 - 3:00.
They had an amazing time, and were exhausted!
