East coast Invasion

East coast Invasion

End of June through the 1st week of July found us on the “other” coast. It was an important trip on two counts.
Julia has had a great year and qualified for the Nationals in NYC. She took her two solos, a duet and six group numbers. Amazing!! Her group tap number “I Mean It” took 1st overall!!

When not watching dance we had a chance to see some of Manhattan. It was a wild few days.

New York City

We flew into Baltimore to start the trip with Dustin, Christina and Tucker. We caught an Orioles’ game, enjoyed an afternoon trip to St. Michaels, MD and watched 4th of July fireworks from their balcony. Lots of good old, wine and laughs!

Searching for a White Christmas

Searching for a White Christmas

We headed to my Rick and Karma’s hoping for a white Christmas and some great family fun. We drove in a convoy with Erin, Jeff and the kids. Dustin flew in from Baltimore.

And, boy did we find what we where looking for.

Great fun in the snow…
