Yesterday was Handley's first ever dance recital! She takes at the community center and they perform outdoors at the city's spring festival as their recital. Handley was so very excited for this day and I had so much fun helping her prepare for the big event. We practiced and practiced her dances and she was as ready as she could be.

We were SO very proud of her and she was the most beautiful little ballerina. She danced her heart out and I was pretty impressed with how well she remembered the dances and remembered to smile. Her first dance was the ballet routine and then they switched shoes and did tap.
After her second dance she got a trophy, which was a total surprise to her and a REALLY big deal. It's her very first trophy and she hasn't let it out of her sight. She's been holding on to it tight and has taken it with us everywhere this weekend. (She even wanted to bring it to church this morning). We also gave her flowers so she felt so proud and happy carrying them around.
It was really hot yesterday so after she was done we made our way to the new RaceTrac for frozen yogurt to help us cool off. You better believe that trophy came in with us. :-)
That night Robby and I attended a UGA Alumni Gala so Gigi and Papa stayed on for the evening to babysit. It was fun getting all dressed up.
Today, Hudson got to try out the bike trailer for the first time and the report was that both he, and Harper, were so comfy in it that they took naps on their ride.
Here are the links to her dance videos if you want to watch. :-) In both videos she starts off on the far right, but in tap she ends up a few over.
