watching the game

on a recent evening walk around the neighborhood, we found a girls' softball game happening at the local park.  we stopped a few moments for noah to watch it.  he was intrigued for a little while until we accidentally dropped his pacifier through the fence and we had to creatively find a way to get it out without disturbing the game!

we survived spring 2023 recital season!

we made it though lots of dance recitals this spring from april through june and we're exhausted.  add a baby to recital season this year and wowza!

we ended the season on sunday with the dance studio where i teach.  the recital was broadway themed which was right up my alley!

everyone did a great job and we're all super proud of them!

saying hi to butterflies

over father's day weekend, we joined my parents for the annual butterfly release event.  it was noah's first butterfly release, and he enjoyed seeing the butterflies float around the park.  he intently watched them and really wanted to hold them . . . maybe next year little guy!

slow wake up

when you just woke up from a very long nap during a dance recital it takes a minute to fully come to and get ready to move.  

i couldn't get over the curled up little nugget in his stroller!  he looked so tiny!

tired little noah bear

all of these dance recitals at the theatre sure make noah tired.  often he passes out in his car seat on the way home from the theatre.  poor little man is worn out just like us!
