Dancing Queen

Grace had her first dance recital last Friday. Following are some of the 100+ photos from the day.
("Look at how cute my kid is!" Alert!)
Hair done - check!
(She hated it and cried in the car,
was OK when we got to the auditorium,
and then wanted it washed out as soon as we got home.)
Waiting for the recital to start.
(iPhones are lifesavers.)
All the pretty girls back stage.

 Big finale...
"Was that it?"
Finally, relaxing at home.
What a long, emotional, fun day!


  1. Grace is SUCH a beauty!! I'm sure she's just as "grace"ful on the stage! :)

  2. Thanks Jamie! She thinks she's got lots of moves, which is fun to watch!

  3. These are adorable pictures!! She is such a sweetie...and those curls are to die for! Did she wash them out right away?

  4. Yes - she had a screaming fit, mascara streaming down her face, "I can't get out of the van at DQ or the girls there will see my hair." (so?) So she had a bath right away, we hoped it would help settle her down, she was way over stimulated. It was fun to see her so dressed up and girly, though.

  5. Hi Kathy,
    Wow, this post brought back memories of June dance recitals and my own two daughters...
    Maybe next year Grace will want to be seen in all her finery and fabulous hair. I seem to remember that going to Perkins in costume and make-up after the show and seeing other girls similarly attired was the thing to do.
    I hope that you and your family will have a wonderful summer -
