This is Emily performing in her first ballet recital. I believe she was two years old and so proud of her little pink tutu and sparkly tiara. Recitals for Maddie and Emily always took place in the spacious backyard of their teacher's home. It is there that parents, siblings, and grandparents gather to watch the kids' summer performances (I think the grandparents were even more excited than the kids). It's a perfect way to spend a warm summer evening!
