This morning Norah's ballet studio had an open house for their students and families - Norah's favorites parts were the face painting and the bouncy house - in that order!Norah's instructor, and owner of DanceWorks Studio, Ms. Karen. She is an incredible teacher - and has such patience and kindness when working with the youngest children. We all love her!
Norah and Kelly, a friend from class.

Charlie found a picnic spot under the buffet table. :-)
I was too distracted to take many pics (i.e. lazing about in a lawn chair, enjoying the sun).

Some pics from our HOT afternoon celebrating Norwegian Constitution Day. We were lagging after the parade, but regrouped and made the most of the rest of the afternoon. Norah was exceptionally cute during her dance performance - she stood center stage and entertained the audience (and herself). We also had people ask to take her photo...I am bias (and flattery will get you everywhere)...but she is pretty great/cute. Emerson enjoyed running around in the kids activity room the most - actually, running around all over. He was up and down stairs and all over the place! He rode in a wagon during most of the parade and in Ryan's arms for the last bit. It was hard being restrained for that long! Emerson also scarfed down a giant polser (sausage) in record time, then begged Ryan for his. Well, I'd say he was more demanding than begging... We met lots of neat families and enjoyed the experience - and are all now in bed or on the way!

If you look in the mirror, you can see Norah admiring her reflection - one of her favorite ballet class activities. Fortunatly, she is not alone! The rest of these girls seem equally enamoured. Practicing returning to the stage for bows!

I love the blessing outfit Dannelle found - its a beautiful knit outfit and was so soft and snuggly. Grammie Peggy made the blanket our SUPERSTAR is laying on.
