{Addison Dance Recital}

Dance recital time!  Addison took a lyrical dance class this year with a great group of friends.  All in all there were 10 girls in the class that were friends (out of 15 total)!  8 of them were LDS so we lobbied pretty hard with the studio to ensure a Saturday recital date (vs. Sunday)...and we got it!  Proud of those girls! 

 Such a fun crew (missing a few here though!)

Addison's dear friend Sophia ...friends since Kindergarten and been dancing together for 3 years too!

And her friend Chanel who has been in her dance class each year since Addison was 4 years old!  

Posing for the camera at the dress rehearsal.

I took all of her pictures before the dress rehearsal the day before so we just had a couple family shots to take on the big day!  We left Miles at home this time (a 3 hour recital is not fun for a 3 year old...and semi-torturous for adults too!)

But we were so happy to have Grandma and Grandpa Dalley here with us this year! What a treat!  

 We were up in the balcony, and I couldn't get a great shot with my camera. I love how they light up on stage with the lights and atmosphere. They get so giddy about it all, and it's so fun to makes all the practices worth it because they love the end result so much! They worked hard and the class pulled off an incredible performance!

We love our little dancer!

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?

More about me here.
