For the next who-knows-how-many-years I will attend a dance recital on Mother's Day. That's the day for recitals at this studio. I have no idea why. I'd like to ask and I'd like to suggest other options, but they've been doing it for 31 years so I'm pretty sure I should just keep my mouth shut!
The doors opened at 1:30 and there was this HUGE line of families at 1:25. The entrance is at the back of this picture where the buildings look like they intersect. There were plenty of seats, even extra, but I guess some wanted to be make sure they were up front. I didn't care where we sat. I had a great seat for the rehearsal and Aliza and I stayed all 3 hours of rehearsal so that she could watch the other classes. I had my videos and pictures so I was happy just to sit and watch the recital. I took my Kindle for good measure, but didn't use it! Two and a half hours--no intermission. After sitting that long I was feeling sortof pregnant!
Jeremy played in a golf tournament the Friday before and he put a few dollars in the raffle for a Mother's Day gift basket. He happened to win and it really made my day. Before I even really saw it I asked if there was a getaway in it and Jeremy said yes (with a silly grin on his face). Bracelet/earrings, restaurant gift cards, Shore birds tickets, a beach umbrella...it was an unexpected and very special surprise. (We'll be able to use the getaway nights next winter during Ocean City's off season.)
