She's a Dancing Machine

Aaron's little sister Kimmy just started dancing this year and loves it. She had a recital last night and one today. Aaron is out of town this weekend fishing with his brother so Finn and I decided to go and support Kimmy. Last night's recital was all the jazz/hip-hop numbers. I was just planning on taking Finn into the hall when he inevitabley got restless but no need because he TOTALLY loved it. He was mesmorized by all the different music/costumes etc. and kept saying "Kimmy! Show! Kimmy! Show!"
Today's recital was a little bit of a different story...it was a production of the ballet "Cinderella" (Kimmy was a florist, pictured above). Since the music was all the same and the dancing wasn't as exciting, he got pretty restless and was ready to leave as soon as Kimmy's number was over. But he still enjoyed himself and loved having Kimmy sit next to us for a little while before/after she went on-stage. She did such a great job!

I couldn't get Finn to smile at the right time, but the middle picture shows how 'in awe' he was of Kimmy. He just kept looking at her and saying her name, it was really cute. He talked about the show all the way home by saying "Kimmy! Show! Chairs!" (they had those fold down chairs that he thought were fun to play on.)
