Bang Bang by Will.I.Am
This song was one that I heard during Sunshine's dance recital this weekend & not only did I dig the song, the dance was one of my favorites.
It was a really tiring weekend. I am just exhausted today & I am so excited about my vacation this weekend, it cannot come soon enough.
Friday night, I ran some errands & then got to meet some of Paul's friends that were visiting from Iowa. They were just as fabulous as he had told me they were! Then the hubby & I went out to the casino for supper & for me to lose money. I ended up sitting in the lobby of the casino when I had had enough & read some of my book (Paper Towns). I should have just pocketed the money Paul gave me & did that from the very beginning because it was just not my night.
Saturday, was day one of the dance recital. They do two performances on Saturday & two on Sunday. It's a very busy weekend. It's nice now that Sunshine is older cuz she gets herself ready - hair & makeup - & all I have to is get pictures. Easy enough. Paul & I went to the Saturday afternoon performance with my grandparents. I frickin' cried during "K's" first number & then again when Sunshine got on stage. I'm just so proud of these girls & the hard work they put in & how well they did. They both had two pieces.
After the afternoon showing, a bunch of us went to local bar & grill for an early dinner before the girls had to jet again for the night performance. I chased "D" all around while my husband put "C" on a gambling machine & he won $5. Ha!
That night, it was decided by "C" that we would have a fire, so we did. He helped Paul build the fire & get wood & even ran to fetch beverages when he was asked. I ran & got goods to make s'mores & we tried Reese's PB Cup s'mores, amazing! When the girls got back from their evening performance, they each had a s'more & went off to bed.
Sunday, it was off to the races again. This time we had lunch plans with my mom, aunt & cousin. A quick lunch at McDonald's & then off. Again, the girls did a great job & I still cried but not as much this time around. Then I was able to stay home the rest of the eve after dropping Trouble & her boyfriend off to watch the last performance & picking up supper for Paul & I.
It was a busy weekend but I got some great pictures from it, here are a few:
Our new gardner, "C".

Sunshine as Cinderella (in Shrek) for her Musical Theater performance.
She wanted to do something silly & she chose "Rockstar" pose. Ha!
