Recently, Caroline had her very FIRST dance recital. It was incredibly exciting. I had been waiting for that moment for three years. Just kidding...sort of ;-) Caroline's dance was called "Bee Humble" so of course her costume was an adorable little bee. The recital was held at the McFarlin Auditorium at SMU...on a BIG stage. We weren't allowed to take any pictures or video inside the auditorium because they had a professional photographer and videographer taking care of that. So as soon as I get the professional pics and video, I'll post it (well, at least the pics and I'll try to figure out the video). Anyway, here are the pics I took during the rehearsal that morning and then at the recital.

Doesn't Matthew look so excited to be at his sis' dance recital?!?
Watching Caroline on stage. Matthew did great and was very quiet during the whole recital. He had a look of bewilderment on his face the whole time, ha:

Clapping for the other girls...Caroline LOVED watching the other dances. She watched all of the girls on stage with wide eyes and kept yelling out "yay" when they would do something "pretty":
Getting some flowers from her fans right after her dance. So exciting!

We were all starving after the recital so we headed to Macaroni Grill (one of Nannie's favorites) to eat:

Caroline, we are so proud of you and the fantastic job you did at your first dance recital. We can't wait to watch you dance on the big stage again next year!! We love you!!
