In June Addie graduated Pre-school. This is also when she announced she wanted to be a captain of a ship when asked "What do you want to be when you grown up".
June is also dance recital time. 2013 was exceptionally fun because I taught dance at my sisters dance studio. I've missed dance and using my creativity, being a dance teacher gave me the opportunity to bring both of these back into my life. I taught one Preschool Creative Ballet Class and 3 Dance With Me (age 18 months - 3 years old) classes. It was a blast and Addie seemed to enjoy having me be a teacher at the studio as well. The theme for the recital was Fairytales, Fables and Folklore's. Addie was in 3 dances Noah's Ark, Star Constellations and Gingerbread Man. She did great and LOVES dance! My dance class did "Princess and The Pea". It was fun because I used my creativity to create a huge bed for the stage scenery. It turned out awesome and my little dances looked so cute on stage.
In July we headed to Northern California to San Francisco. Here we met up with our good friends the Johnson's, from Southern Cali. While we visited San Francisco we went to a magic show where Tate and I got to go on stage for a couple of different tricks. Tate was hilarious on stage. I don't even remember what he did, but he was just being Tate and everyone in the audience was laughing at him. We also took the kids to Alcatraz which we weren't sure how it would be but the kids were great. Tate actually really enjoyed it and had lots of questions about the prison when our tour was over. We also went to an awesome park at the Golden Gate park and saw the Golden Gate bridge. It was such a fun vacation and so nice being able to spend a few days with them and their kids.
After San Francisco we headed to Yosemite for the Snow Family Trip. It was so beautiful there and Matt and I hiked The Half Dome, which was wicked scary.
