Taylor at the Tap Festival

Taylor's dance studio had a wonderful opportunity to participate in a Tap Festival held in front of the Fox Theatre. The day started off pretty well but as the time approached for Taylor to perform the storms rolled in. We stood in a parking garage on Grand and Lindell trying to stay warm and dry. We patiently waited for the word if we would perform. Two hours after we arrived the rain stopped and they began drying the stages. Many of the dance Dads jumped on stage with mops and rags to help speed up the drying process. The girls finally went on at 3:30. They looked great! It was a great honor to be selected to perform on stage at the festival.

Delaney Cheering at the Kirkwood Football Game!

Delaney loves doing the cheer camp each year with the Kirkwood High School Cheerleaders. Each year they participate in a cheer camp and then they cheer at the Football game. She loves going down on the track to cheer with all of her friends.

Tea Room

Delaney got the idea that she wanted to have a girls day and go to a Tea Room. If you know Delaney well you know that once she has an idea she will not stop talking about it until she does it. We decided to do it on a half day of school. Trey would be in preschool and Taylor would probably choose to hang out with her friends. My mom and I picked up Delaney and headed to the Tea Room. She was so excited she even wore a dress to school. She was such a young lady. She was amazed at the sugar cubes and was so cute sitting there sipping her tea. We had a great day with wonderful food, great company and the biggest smile on her face.

Train Ride

With nothing on our schedule today we decided to enjoy some of the beautiful weather. We've been trying for at least a year to take Trey to a train depot that offers rides on small trains. We ended up going with Mama, Papa, Aunt Stephanie, Uncle Dave and Dane. We rode the train had a Grand Tour of the Roundhouse and then ended the day with a very entertaining ride through Lone Elk Park.

Just a piece of advice - Do not get out of your car when there is a very large Elk protecting his herd. Luckily we watched from our car as a man and many families got a first hand lesson on this.

Trey's First Day of Preschool

I can't believe the time has come for Trey to go to preschool. I was sad that he is already old enough to go to preschool, but excited for him. Darnel took the day off of work to spend some one on one time with our little guy. They went to one of Trey's favorite places, Whittle Shortline and then enjoyed lunch before heading off to school. Daddy took plenty of pics and then Trey settled into his room. He absolutely loved it. He has such a big smile on his face when I tell him he has school. Wouldn't it be great if that excitement lasted through high school!
