Oh, in this pic Lily was flustered (it was dress rehearsal) because they got confused on where they were supposed to be. Luckily, it didn't happen during the real thing and they did it perfectly. I love the look on her face.
What a weekend! Or, I guess I should say--what a week! Lily had her dance recital last night. My parents came up for it. It was a very nice recital and Lily did a great job. She was so excited all week--to the point of being very hyper! She is so into the dance thing. I'm glad she likes it so much because I really like watching it! These are all pictures that my friend with a much better camera than mine took. The other girl in the pics is her daughter whose name is also Lily. Her brother is on Wyatt's baseball team. Speaking of baseball, we got so lucky. Wyatt was due to play tournament games at the exact same time as the recital. They got rained out so we didn't have to deal with figuring that all out! He plays them tonight instead, which is much better!
The ballet portion of the recital was called "Watercolors" and was an ocean theme. They started out with the song "Come Sail Away" where they all ran across the stage with scarves. Lily's dance was to a song called "Island of Dreams". The tap part was called "Shiver Me Timbers!" and was a pirate theme. Lily's dance was to "My Bonny"(Lies Over the Ocean)--it was a version that started slow but then got kind of rock and roll-it was really cute. The finale was really cute, too. I have some pics of those that I haven't loaded yet. I'll post more later.
Oh, we ate at a great restaurant Friday night. It's called St. Elmo's Steakhouse. It was SOOO good. The we walked around downtown Indy for a bit. I need to get my "country" kids to a city more. They were SO shocked and scared actually of all the beggars. I guess I don't think too much about it because I've lived in larger cities and dealt with it. I didn't even realize that they have never even seen someone shaking a can and asking for money. We gave a lady our leftover chicken. She seemed grateful. We even had one guy give us the sob story of needing $8 for cab fare. Anyway, we had a great weekend and I'm glad it's over. The next 2 weeks before we leave for the beach will be relaxing and I'm looking forward to them!
