Off to the Ballet!

On May 21st Ballet West presented Sleeping Beauty at the Sandy Amphitheater and I decided to take the girls. It was a mixed bag. I really enjoyed the show and in one respect, so did the girls. However, there were MANY questions and quite a bit of whining about when it would be over despite the lollipops and various goodies in my bag. I'm glad we went, but I think I'll wait until Clarissa is a couple years older before taking her to the ballet again. I think the Nutcracker is in order for Lila and I in December.

All dressed up and ready to go!

We sat in the grass, which was nice because it allowed for more wiggle room. Yes, Timbra, my class is showing again.
Technically cameras weren't allowed. I only took a couple.

During intermission we went up for the "Royal Coronation" on stage. The girls were each crowned as honorary princesses.

Second half as more fun for Lila, but a bit less fun for Clarissa.

At the end of the show the girls got to go on stage and get their picture taken with the cast. Very fun!

Friday Soccer-day

Kurtis' division finished up the season with a tournament. His team won the tournament, which earned them nothing more than bragging rights, but they really rocked!

What does one really need to watch a soccer game? If you guessed a snorkel mask you were right!

Scales and Tails

Lila's school threw a end of the year party with a potluck and fun with Scales and Tails.

my favorite rule: the grass stays growing in the ground
Yummy food

Time for snakes, lizards, turtles and spiders!

It was a really fun time and went really well despite my worry about the potluck. There was plenty we all could eat and the girls didn't even notice the things they couldn't have! The big boa was a huge hit and both the girls loved petting it!
