Ava's Dance Recital

Ava had her dance recital a few weeks ago, and the whole experience confirmed that there really isn't much in this world cuter than little girls in dance costumes. The recital was held at SMU's McFarlin Auditorium, and Ava was in two dances this year...ballet and tap. 

After parking in the law school parking garage, we had Ava pose for some pictures right in the middle of the area where Josh and I spent so much time back the day (crazy that it has been 10 years!).

The ballerinas waiting backstage for their time in the spotlight...

The ballet performance was to a slow version of "Pure Imagination," and it was so sweet. We took a video, but due to the distance and lights, you can barely see anything. 

After a quick change, it was time for tap. I only managed to snap one picture of her in the tap version of her costume, which was just a fringe skirt in place of the tutu. The tap dance was to "Sugar Sugar," and Ava rocked those shuffle steps.

Our little ballerina after the show... 

And while Rylan was a bit fussy/fidgety during the second half of the recital, I know there wasn't a prouder baby brother in the whole theatre.

Heart officially melted.

About Me

My name is Catherine, but most of my friends call me Cat. I was born and raised in Austin, went to TCU, and ended up in Dallas for law school (where Josh and I met). I decided that being an attorney was not my cup of tea and pursued a career in legal marketing instead. I am now a mother of two attempting to balance family with a full-time job, which is always an adventure. I love: my sweet babies, handsome husband, very large family, and fabulous friends; trying new restaurants; wine; TCU football; holidays; cooking; The Bar Method; pajamas; La Croix; reading; coffee; podcasts; Central Market; carbs; the beach; mani/pedis; Anthropologie; binge-worthy TV shows; trivia; French 75s; Pinterest; cheese boards; The Ticket; dancing; Sprinkles cupcakes; The Texas Rangers; fresh flowers; thunderstorms; naps; Tex-Mex; the Texas Hill Country; porch-sitting; ranch dressing; throwing parties; and my job. I hate: working-mom guilt; snakes; heights; waking up early; ignorant people; stomach bugs; paper cuts; green fruit; snoring; bad hair days; the sound of people eating (Misophonia); scary movies; bad drivers; pulpy OJ; trimming baby fingernails; and Miracle Whip. I think that about sums it up.
