Recital 2014

Carly had her dance recital a few weeks ago and she was amazing.

 She is such a beautiful little dancer.

 Her tap routine was to the song Give a Little Whistle.  She was supper sassy and cute!

 We love that she gets to dance with her cousin Zoe.
 Goofy girls!

More horsing around

 At the beginning of  May Brianna  had her first mini event of the season.

 The first event is dressage.

 She moved up a level from last time she competed, and she did amazing.
She won this even by 2 points.

Then she headed of for the cross-country course and fell off. 

But she got back on and finished the course.

She is a pretty amazing rider and we are so proud of her no matter how she places.

The event was on the same day as the Kentucky Derby so participants were asked to wear derby hats.  She also happens to be the cutest rider and pony out there.

Cinderella, Cinderella

 One of the reasons our May was busier than usual was because Carly had the chance to preform in MountainWest Ballet's production of Cinderella.
 She got to be a mouse in the show. Her cousin and BFF was also in the show.They danced in three different dances, including getting to help Cinderella make her dress.  Aren't they the cutest mice ever?!
 Carly has made some fun friends in her dance class (mom has made friends too).
All the mice
 Two pretty dancers after the show.
Grandma and grandpa came to see the show.

And Aunt Jenny and Grandma Phyllis

Carly and Morgan, who danced the roll of Cinderella.  Morgan is not only a beautiful dancer, but a really awesome roll model and I'm so happy my girl has girls like her to look up too.  Morgan is going to go far.
Carly had so much fun dancing in this show and really loves to dance.  She pretty darn good at it to.
