Ok, so that was a sweet post about Gabs and her daddy. Now let's talk about the rest of the insanity that was Recital 2012. THIS is their haul from friends, family, grandparents, etc. It's sort of a backstage tradition. And when I was called back as the "only one parent backstage after the show, please", I didn't remember that because I had TWO kids, I could've likely gotten away with two of us! AND there was THIS much stuff to carry out too. I was WORN SLAP OUT when I finally got outside.
In fact, I think I looked a lot like this...
WHEN will Cindy realize that I AM going to post every weird face she makes when I point the camera at her?!! Of course I am ! But, I felt the very same way!!
Now, lets' take a look at a sampling of the people there to root my girls onto a successful dance recital!
Here, we have KK. She doesn't miss anything we do!
And of course, there's Veronicia and CoCo too.
Gabs just LOVES all this attention and LOVES all these people.
And I am pretty sure they love her too. My girls have so much love and support around them!
Oh. And gifts.
Like this awesome big floppy hat from KK. I'd say we are beach ready.
JinJin was there with giant ballerina babies for the girlies. All three of her girls.
Kimie drove in from out of town to watch the show.
She's their "other" grandmother, ya know.
Nana and Pops came bearing lavendar roses. (Linda LAVENDAR School of Dance!!)
We had enough flowers to make a huge bouquet when we got back home.
And the legions of friends and families of the kids were all outside as all the dancers exited "stage left".
