Total Eclipse

Confession:  Never been much of a Musical Theater person.  I know, so weird right?  Because you can totally picture me belting out a show tune.  Wait - that wasn't me.  It was my daughter who is born to perform.  Who comes alive on the stage whether it's playing a boy from Newsies or a Poodle Skirt wearing girl from Grease. 
 Then we have my sensitive, quiet ballerina.  Dancing this year to "Here Comes the Sun". 
 They both did great and worked hard in there classes.  It was worth every penny I spent...
No really, it was!

 So the recital was Friday night.  On Sunday our family was blessed with a new baby boy Cousin, Landon Jarett.  Of course I never took a picture because I was too busy holding him.  Very much looking forward to a lot more of that!

We invited the Big Sisters over for an Eclipse/Splash Pad party.   They decided to pretend they just had a baby.  They made it look like a very relaxing experience.  These pictures will be priceless and I can't wait to pull them out 20 years from now when they are giving birth.  HA!

Note:  Not really sure what the bandages on the ankles were for?  Maybe to reduce Cankle swelling?

The last Eclipse you could see in Arizona was 18 years ago so I thought this was pretty cool.  I wasn't sure what impressed me more though:
1.  Seeing the lapse of the moon pass over the Sun
2.  My husband coming out of the garage with this welding hood so we wouldn't burn our eyes out.

Sometimes that man just knows exactly how to melt my heart *sigh*
