Audrey's 1st Dance Recital

Recently, Audrey had her first dance recital.  She had such fun this year in her Pre-combo class which was an hour long class where they covered ballet, tap and some tumbling during the class.  Her teachers, Miss Molly Brooke and Miss Mallory, were fabulous.  Audrey learned alot during the year while having fun.  She would always come home and teach Addison the skills she had learned.

Although I danced for 14 years of my life, it was so much different being on this side of the recital responsibilities.  I don't know who was more nervous- me or Audrey.  I was so worried that I wouldn't have all the costume pieces in the right places the right way at the right time.  Thankfully, it all turned out okay.

The recital was held May 12 at 1:00pm at the Bama Theater.  The theme was Mary Poppins.  The backdrops and costumes were beautiful.

Audrey's tap dance was to the song "Step In Time".  Such a cute routine and I thought the red and white costumes were adorable.

Her ballet dance was the "Fancy Ladies and Ladies with Parasols".  Audrey was a Lady with Parasol. 

Audrey had lots of "cheerleaders" to come watch her dance.

This is Miss Molly Brooke- Audrey's teacher.  She was a wonderful teacher.  Very talented, so kind and patient.

Audrey's 5th Birthday Party

We had Audrey's 5th birthday party at a gymnastics center in town.  This was the first time in several years that her party wasn't postponed due to bad weather. 

She wanted Little Mermaid (Ariel) theme party.  That particular theme wasn't easy to find in the party supplies.  But after months of looking we finally found items at various locations.

Several of her friends came to celebrate with her.  They all seemed to have such a fun time.

There were lots of activities for them to participate in.  Addison loved doing what the "big kids" did.

After about an hour of playtime, it was time for yummy cupcakes and snacks.

This was a group photo of most of the children that attended the party.  I just love the looks they all have on their faces.  Such a silly bunch of kids!

It was a wonderful day! 

As soon as we finished up with her party, I loaded Audrey up and headed to her friend's birthday party.  We were partying all day :)
