The Dancer and I were able to attend her older cousin, Maile’s dance recital last night with her grandma, Aunts Traci & Brittany, and cousins Ashlynn, Rebecca & Maci. Maile was incredible! She was the star of the show. The girls would get soo excited everytime she came on stage. As was I. Her animation, grace, and precicsion lit up the stage! The show was very well done: great theme, numbers, costumes, lighting, and variety. I can’t wait to go again next year!
Over the past couple weeks, I began thinking that the dancer would love to go with us (we had not planned for her originally), but clearly, she was meant to be there. She loved every moment!
Her cousins were so good to take care of her, let her sit with them, hold her hand.
After the show, she couldn’t stop watching Maile, and telling me, “she’s a dancer!”
(The dancer and builder before the recital…she was soo excited!)
As we walked to the car, the dancer turned to me and said, “It’s my turn now.” Yup, she wants to dance on stage one day…just like her beautiful cousin Maile!
As we drove to meet up at Maggie Moo’s (a tradition for Maile and her grandparents), the dancer fell asleep. Definitely a great outing. She enjoyed it so much that it tuckered her right out!
The end of a perfect “Cousins night out” with Maile!
