Our “Dancing Queen”

July 30, 2009

Hayley had her end of the year dance recital in June. She did three dances and this was the one with the best video which you could see her and she wasn’t behind someone else. This is their jazz dance. She really loves dance and thinks it is just awesome. You can tell she is enjoying herself!

Hayley’s dance team competed at Lagoon this summer.  They did really well and won the sweepstakes and got a big trophy for their dance studio.  It also gave us the chance to go to Lagoon with the kids and let them ride the rides after the competion.

Okay…let me clarify…I ride everthing and everyone else rides some things.  We all really liked The Bat – even Dillan after we conviced him to ride it.  I did get Hayley to ride Colossus with me, but I’m not sure what she thought about it.  I rode Wicked by myself and it was AWESOME!  I think the only ride that has ever really scared me was the Maliboomer at Disneyland’s California Adventure – 180 feet in 4 seconds – I was shaking when I got off!

It was a nice day and not too hot.  Just before we got ready to come home we decided to ride Rattlesnake Rapids because we knew we’d get wet.  Well, we did, and then we got wetter!  It poured on us!  We finally just decided it wasn’t going to quit for awhile and hurried out to the car and left.

img_2398Well,  I have been out of the blogging world for quite awhile now!  2 and 1/2 months to be exact.  Sometimes it just seems like there are things in your life which completely consume you for a time and you’re so intensely focused you can’t think about anything else.  I’ve kinda been there for awhile now.  Hopefully starting broaden my horizons again a little bit.  Anyway… time for an update on a few things the family has had going on and pictures.

This was Sydnie’s cake that my mom made.  It turned out really cute with the fondant.  Cute, but the fondant is really almost to sweet to eat.  Mom has really been into the cake decorating and making all her grandkid’s birthday cakes.

Sydnie had a fun party with a few friends.  They had a fun time.  What crazy sweet girls! 

Sydnie is 12!  Starting Young Women now!  That just can’t be possible can it?

Hayley had a big dance competition in Idaho Falls in March.  They did really well and got a big trophy for their dance studio.  I loved their cute costumes.  Their score qualified them to go to competition in Lagoon this summer which they are all really excited about.

This isn’t that great of a picture of Syd’s DARE graduation but you can tell at least that she was able to get her diploma from her dad.

This was Hayley’s birthday cake from her 10th birthday last week.  Cake courtesy of Grandma Kathy of course.  This time with frosting ’cause Hayley did not want to eat fondant as she informed her grandmother.  She got to go bowling with a few friends and mom which was fun.  They had pizza and cake and Hayley got a bowling pin which her friends helped decorate.
