Sam's Dance Recital

We had Sam's dance recital on Saturday. This is her 3rd year in dance and she just loves it. My good friend Trisha teaches the dance class and puts together a great show. She designs and choreographs everything herself.....she is amazing!!! Every year the girls learn 3 dances. I am always impressed that my little Sam can remember 3 different dances. This years theme was Back to the Future with the Power of Love. The girls did dances to songs from the 1920's through the 1990's. This is the third year I have helped backstage with costumes. I have not yet sat and watched the recital but I love being backstage. Getting to see all the costumes come together and all the little girls dressed up. Randy records the recital and I watch it as soon as we get home. All the girls get all gussied up with makeup and curled hair. All except my Sam....she did not want to curl her hair...ugh!!!! Oh well, she did let me put a little makeup on. Sam dressed for "Don't go breakin' my heart" by Elton John....her favorite costume Sam, Malia and Moira Sam and Malia dressed for "I feel fine" by the Beatles...I think my niece Shalay will like this Sam and her best friend Malia Group shot for "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" Sam dressed for "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy"

Tina's Wedding.......Vegas!!!!!

My best friend since 4th grade got married on May 1, 2010. She got married at the Green Valley Ranch in Henderson, Nevada. It was our first time to Henderson. Randy and I really enjoyed it. He is now talking about moving there. We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express because Tina's dad gets a discounted rate. We need to save money any way we can. The kids loved their suite. After the wedding (which ended about 4pm) we took the kids to the strip to see the real Vegas. They were fascinated with the lights. We took them to Circus Circus and it was totally disgusting. I think my husband was trying to live he childhood again. I don't think anyone had cleaned this place since my husband was there last. Maybe it was just me but it just seemed dirty to doesn't help that the people there were also dirty. At least the kids did not notice it. They were too busy playing games.

The kids had a really cool suite in our hotel room....we are not big Nascar fans but they loved this

When my Dodger fan becomes a Yankee

My son is one of the biggest Dodger fans ever. This year in baseball he was drafted to the Yankees. I think he was shocked at first but then got over it really fast. They have a really good team and they got really cool jackets with their names on them.
