Let's Dance!!!

Do you ever become so wrapped in writing and the busyness of life that sometimes you forget to just have fun? Well, that's how it's been around here lately. 

But last weekend Hubby and I attended the second reception for my nephew and this time there was room to dance. And boy, did it feel good. Here I am dancing with my favorite partner my grandson, Jonathan. Isn't he the cutest?

You can't see that he's pulling my hair, but other than that he was a great dancing partner. Light on his feet and always a smile on his face.

We had a wonderful time!

Wait a minute. I started at the end of this awesome adventure. Let's start at the beginning.

The drive to Idaho was mostly foggy, but we hit this patch of blue sky as we passed Pocatello. Clouds were crawling over the mountain. One word describes the scene, beautiful! 

After several stops along the way, we made it to the reception. Here's a picture of the bride and groom with their parents.

My sister, Jo Lynn, came to the reception. You're going to hear more about her as the release of my book, River Whispers, draws near. She helped inspire me to write the book. She's taken me fishing, camping, on cattle drives, to rodeos, and etc. In the picture, going left to right: Jonathan, me, Jo, Julie (my sister's daughter), and Stan, Julie's husband.

After visiting and eating we danced. Such fun! 

Here's the bride and groom, Craig and Kassie.

This is the mother of the groom, Tonya, dancing with her son.
This is the father of the groom, Steve, dancing with the bride.

 This is my daughter, Kristina, dancing with her husband, Greg. (Kris, what are you looking at?)

This is my brother, Bill, with his wife, LaRae.
This is Hubby and me dancing the night away.
I learned a lesson. When life gets busy, DANCE!!!


  1. I know what you mean. I get caught up with my reading and writing more than anything else and I just forget sometimes to actually get up and have fun. My kids ask me to play a game with them and then I realize I'm having fun before I know it. It feels good to take time for other things.

  2. Amanda,
    Isn't that the truth? It felt good to laugh and dance. Now, I have to knuckle down and get back to work, but I have my memories to see me through to the next time. I'm going dancing more often. :)

  3. Just dance! Now that's lesson worth learning. My husband won't dance--period. We didn't even have dancing when we got married. Can you believe it?! *sigh* :-)

  4. Shannon,
    Oh, I believe it. My hubby doesn't like to dance, but when he saw me out there having a good time with Jonathan, he wanted to join in. ;)

    BTW: We didn't dance at our wedding either...but we did at my daughter's, so hang in there.
