Mia had her very first dance recital yesterday!
It was lots of fun and very entertaining!
Here's a crowd picture that Ray took, we were sitting about three rows back, you can see my daughter Katie (leaning over to talk to Jayden), Jayden (with his back to the camera), myself, my niece Erin, and our daughter-in-law Lori's sister Jackie, and Lori's Mom Virginia too (there were lots of other relatives there too, we don't all fit in the picture!). Mia's parents (our son Erik and daughter-in-law Lori are standing at the far side of the room, you can see later in the video that Lori's Mom and sister joined them to get a better view!).
I had to snap this little boy, he was so adorable in his little sequin vest! I asked Jayden if he wanted to take dance lessons too and his answer was a firm and resounding, "NO!", but he did enjoy watching!
The rest of the pictures are dark, but maybe you can see Mia in this one, she is second from last, and looking mighty frightened as she first walked into the room!
But she smiled when she spotted me!
And when she paid attention to her dance teachers rather than looking for her Daddy she did quite well!
You can see in the video how she keeps looking to Erik, she really is 'Daddy's Little Girl'!
And note the dance teacher, she is about to give birth any day, AND she is on orders from her doctor to be on bed rest!!
Mia is the youngest dancer in this school.
And here's the proud parents!
And as much as Mia loves her Daddy she does say that her Aunt Katie and her Mommy are her 'Best Friends'!
