Bunny Left From Easter

Went to my first recital last night. The performance was of Little Red Riding Hood by a ballet company in Boulder City, Nevada. Why would I break such a long streak of never seeing a recital? Olivia.

She was one of the bunnies in the forest during Red's 2 1/2 hour trek to Grandma's house. Sure, I wanted her to have a bigger part but this is her first year, I believe. But one thing that was very noticeable was that the other girls were looking over at her to make sure they were doing the right thing. That smile on her face in the photo says it all. I gave her that flower (that's in her hands) after the performance. If you look closely to the right of the picture, you can see Olivia's new brother/sister... well, my sister's stomach (which she tried to avoid getting photographed.) I had a great time and I even got to play with Connor for a bit (felt bad about getting something for Olivia so I gave him some taffy.)

Olivia is adorable and I love the look of joy on her face! What a wonderful Uncle you are Martin! Sis looks like she's ready to have the next kid soon! Its hard to keep a belly that big out of the pic, I think its cool that you got a shot of it, a belly full of baby is a beautiful thing!

hugs,
Bar

Martin. Wow. What a cute niece! Glad you had a good time at the recital. Makes it all worthwhile when someone you care about is in the recital.

What a very cute and obviously very happy little bunny. She's beaming, and for good reason. :)

DUDE! Just read "THE" newsletter (the only one worth reading) and was sooooooo jazzed to hear that my good buddy Peter F. is coming out with some new stuff! Very under-rated musician, the guy can PLAY!
