Barn Dancing

April 10th, 2011 by Mommy

Julia and Mommy went together to the annual Barn Dance and Chili Dinner. Julia was so excited to go! She picked out her boots to wear and wore her hat around all afternoon. When we first got there, it was a new place with lots of people so she was shy again. Once she found her friends and a space to run she was her friendly little self. After running around the dance floor and eating, we went out to check out the farm. She loved sitting on the tractors, and was curious about the pigs, roosters, and hens. The rooster talked to her and Julia found it quite startling, but got used to it. By far her favorite thing to do was run around the dance floor with her friends. When it was time to go home she gave kisses to all the babies, hugs to the bigger kids, and blew kisses to the other mamas. Sweet times!

Annual Barn Dance

May 3rd, 2009 by Mommy

We borrowed Elena’s really cool purple hat! Thanks Elena for sharing!

Julia is hanging out with Daddy!

Our side of the square had an extra dancer.


We had our annual church Barn Dance and Chili Cook-off. Last year Emily loved dancing and didn’t want to quit even when Mommy’s arms were tired. This year she liked the dancing, but was far more interested in playing outside with theĀ other kids and toys. Julia had a blast riding around in the front pack. She did some dancing with Mommy while Daddy and Emily played. Emily could have chased bubbles for the whole evening if she had been allowed to. The only sad note from the evening was that we didn’t get any photos of Emily and Daddy dancing to the hokey pokey. They had a blast even though Emily didn’t quite get the idea of sticking individual body parts in and out of the circle. Her favorite was the whole body and hopping in and out of the circle.
