Lily’s Dance Recital

by RonFamilySuper cute

Six year old granddaughter Lily performed onstage in a dance recital yesterday 5/21/22. So Brenda and I had to go down to bear witness, natch’. Extra seating had to be brought in as the auditorium was packed! Lily was in two dance numbers and she did a great job – no stage fright at all, despite the huge crowd of spectators! We were sitting near the back, so these pictures were take from fairly far away. Consequently, they’re not as sharp as I would like. Later that day, Nick was scheduled for a soccer game but sadly, the game was cancelled due to too may players unable to attend. So instead, we had lunch at Capital City Ale House, and then went downtown to the River Rock Festival on the James River. There were many free events, including free Kayaking, so Dane and Lily jumped in a kayak and paddled up and down the river. I had no idea what a great city Richmond was until Brian & Susan moved there a few year ago. Click on the first picture below to run through all the dance recital pics and enjoy the cuteness.

Olivia Visits!

Olivia stopped by yesterday. She’s been having a great time visiting her old friends, Charlotte, Cam, and Abbygale, as well as Aunt Amanda, cousin Kelsey, and her “Bee” and “Papa.” When the other kids left, Olivia helped Brenda and me walk Arty and Frannie through the woods and the park. We were worried that she wouldn’t be able to walk all that way (about a mile), but turns out not only could she easily walk it, she ran almost the entire way! Then off to Costco, followed by a fine evening of bubble bath and bedtime stories. I’m sure today will be even more fun, and will add more pictures if Brenda takes any.
