Arden’s first time up on the big stage was for rehearsal the night before…and although she didn’t do a single dance move, she sang her little heart out. It was pretty comical. Even so, I hoped she would dance at the actual recital–so like any good mom would do, I bribed her with ice cream. I must have told her 100 times the next morning about all of the fun toppings she could put on her ice cream if she did every dance move. And I’m happy to report–it worked!! She danced AND sang (ha!) and her little class stole the show with “Old MacDonald”.
Here are some of my favorite shots from the big day…
She was excited, I promise! 😉
And yes, Chris managed to find flowers that matched her costume. They were perfect!
We forgot Nash in this picture…and we definitely didn’t tell Arden that he slept through her performance 🙂
Our star with Gigi & Papa…
Grandma & Grandpa drove a long way to cheer her on, so I sure am glad she actually danced!!
And of course, I had to follow through with my end of the deal. Ice cream!!!
Arden sure did have a great time at dance this year. She knew she had class on Fridays and she woke up excited to put on her “weeotard” and go see her little friends. It was really fun to see the girls get closer (and the “little brother club” get bigger!) throughout the year. I can’t wait for another fun year watching these cuties dance!
