Cali had her first dance recital this past weekend. Naturally, we made a big deal about it. You would’ve thought she was the prima ballerina in a special production of Swan Lake for the Queen of England. If you don’t believe in miracles, well…you should. If you’ll note in the following pictures…Cali’s hair is slicked back. She didn’t put up too much of a fight for the dress rehearsal. But she had a complete and total meltdown prior to the main event and I honestly didn’t think we were gonna make it. I was in dire need of a daquiri by the time we left the house.
Mood swings aside, the recital went beautifully. Every single one of the dancers did an awesome job. Everything from the programs to the sensational costumes was first class and I’m proud that my daughter had a part in the process.
I was only able to take photos during the rehearsal…so you’re unable to see the beautiful costumes worn by the older girls. Take my word for it…they were stunning.
