Dance Weekend

This weekend was Lena's dance recital. I always love her recitals because her teacher takes such care in planning a theme for the show and then making sure each dance and song goes along with the theme. This years theme was "Disney Through the Decades" Lena was a part of A Whole New World from Aladdin and The Enchanted Tiki Room! She looked beautiful and did a great job. This year was especially fun too because I had friends who's daughters were in the show so I knew kids in numerouse dances not just our own. Another year down and can't wait for next year! Most of these pictures were taken by my wonderful sister in law Jen.

Remodling to move up

We have begun the process of preparing our house to put on the market. We have lived in this house for 10 years and are now ready for an upgrade. My family has out grown the openess of the 1600 sqft design that makes up my home. There is no rec. room, no room over the garage, no play room. My kids don't like playing in their rooms they always want to be in the living room under foot. So we decided that it's time for an upgrade. Along with the process of looking for a new home we are having to re-do some things in our house to get it ready to sell... our first project is the master bathroom. We are completly renovating it. We have painted the walls ripped the big ugly mirror of the wall, hung a new light and now are needing to replace the flooring, bathtub and sinks. It's a bigger job then we expected but we are having a ton of fun doing it!! Stay tuned for before and after pictures of the bathroom!!

First photography experience

Last night I joined Radley from Artiem photography his friend Dave and Naomi also of the studio at the Kafe Beach Bash. I had my first experience as a photographers assitant and as a candid shooter at an event. I have to say I SUCK as a candid shooter. I just don't have the confidence wtih the camera yet to get in peoples faces. I hear it comes with time and even the seasoned photographers have a a hard time with this one. I had a really good time and got to play with a really neat camera. All in all I learned a lot and had a ton of laughs (these guys are so much fun to work with) and I can't wait until my next job!
