Here Comes The Sun - PSC38

Hi everyone!  Just wanted to say that it's good to be home!  Yes, I have been on vacation in sunny California where the weather was just beautiful - cool in the mornings and evenings and just gorgeous during the day.  My oldest daughter is moving in just a couple weeks about an hour from their present house to Coto De Caza, so I helped her a little bit with packing.

Here's a picture of the new house  It's still having some remodeling done.  That's my SIL walking out of the house. 

To the left is a single car garage.  They are lucky with not having a whole lot of lawn to take care of, but there are a few flower beds around.  The back of the house overlooks a wooded area and beyond that is the golf course, so it's kinds of nice and quiet out there.

On the way down there, we saw this biker riding on the freeway and he had a skeleton riding on the bike behind him.  We thought it was a hoot, so of course I had to take a picture of it.
 The main reason that I went though was to see my youngest granddaughter in her last recital at the studio where she has been studying dance for the last 8 years.  The program was titled "There's No Place Like Encore."  It was a take off on the Wizard of OZ. It was the first time that I've seen her "en pointe."  The pictures I took were with my Nikon camera so they are a bit fuzzy from the movement.

This is one of her on the left as one of the 2 Snow Queens.  The snow woke Dorothy up after she feel asleep in the poppys.

This is her again in the middle as one of the"water" maids.  Fire and Water are what killed the Witch.
One last one of her in the middle as one of the Emerald City people.  Altogether she was in 8 different numbers. Lots of dances and costume changes.  I don't know how they do it.  We're hoping that she'll find a new studio close to where they are moving to so she can continue with her dance.  This is her life.

One last photo - my oldest granddaughter who just finished up her first year at BYU.  She wants to major in Advertising.  With her is their dog - Tucker.  He's full of energy and very high maintenance, but just so cute and adorable.  Smart too - he knows quite a few tricks.

That's all for today.  I really need to get back in the groove and get working on some more projects.  I'll be back next Wednesday with another Perfect Sentiment challenge.  In the meantime, pop on over to the blog HERE to see what the rest of the ladies have created this week.  I think there are 2 prizes up for grabs this week since we only had 2 entries for last week's challenge.  Don't forget you could be chosen as one of the Perfect 3.

Hope you have a great day and come back to visit soon.
