Royal Princess Dorothy!!

Cherry Creek Dance (where Dorothy has dance lessons) offers many princess camps all summer long. I asked Dorothy if she would like to attend a princess camp to which she of course replies "yes, Ariel camp!!!" Well, much to her and later my dismay, Ariel camp was FULL!!! After telling her that, she began crying and begging to go to Ariel camp! All week I tried talking her into Belle camp or Cinderella camp but she held out. I decided by mid-summer I could have her all excited for Belle camp and went to sign her up. The owner of Cherry Creek dance after hearing Dorothy throw a fit about not going to Ariel camp, informed me they had opened a spot for her in Ariel camp!!! So Dorothy was able to achieve her life long dream of becoming a "true princess" at Ariel camp!!!

Her face paint after one of the days! They also painted nails, did make-up, fake eyelashes, glitter and everything a princess needs to look beautiful!!

Practicing for the recital at the end of camp!!

Grandma even came out to see Dorothy at Ariel camp!!

In case you thought this camp was a sham, we have a certificate to prove otherwise!!!

Return to your roots in C-town!!!

My brother Evan and I went out to Caldwell for a Madrigal reunion/retirement party for Mr. Buckendorf (aka Mr B)!! We spent the weekend practicing, practicing, and well that's about all we did! It was so much fun to see and catch up with everybody!! We had a concert on Sat. night and went to a very late night dinner! Conrad even joined us for some of the festivities!!! It was a nice tribute to a man who has inspired so many students to love music!!!

Evan, Me and Conrad (now that's a good lookin' family!!)

Cousin-Fest 2008

After spending a few days with the Thomas side of the family, we went to Utah county to spend some time with the Mickelsens! The cousins had a week of fun planned!! We went swimming, went to jumping jacks, the movies, did craft projects, and played, played played!!

I only took my camera the day we went to jumping jacks!!

Happy 4th of July!!

Being that the 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays, we celebrated in style!! We spent the day with the Thomas family and we escaped Denver for a little while!! The kids went swimming, rode Blade's motorcycle, went riding downhill in a truck, played on a HUGE blow-up slide, and of course, the usual fireworks which both kids are obsessed with!!!! We had so much fun!!
