The Luau

Friday night was the First Annual Brown Family Luau.  An Elementary School Dance.  My first.

So I signed up to work it.  And it was 20 degrees when the time finally came. 
Who's crazy enough to wear a muumuu when it's 20 degrees outside?  Me.  

Like it?  It's autumn sunrise.  

I was working hard at the ticket table when these sweetboys arrived to help me out.  
I got to take tickets.  Good thing, because as I was doing so, I learned that siblings were not invited.  So I had to call Eric and tell him that Jacob wasn't welcome.  :(  So Eric offered to stay home with Jake while I continued and he sent the boys in.  They helped me take tickets for a while, but they'd also run to the gym to dance and grab snacks.   All the kids were given leis and sunglasses for the luau.  It was so much fun, and I had barely made it into the gym for the dancing.  

But oh yeah, it's a good time.  Chris and I got in line for the Limbo.  This was his practice move.  

Chris was actually doing really great in the Limbo, he made it through 3 rounds before falling to his his hands.  I was really proud of him.  

I got a great opportunity to dance with Sam too.  He's such a lightweight, he loved spinning around, or having me twist him while we danced.  

The only thing that would have made it better is if I'd had a 'drinkie' before I'd arrived.  
It was like the most fun wedding reception, but with more kids! 

Here are my special Luau dates and I after we arrived home.  

When I stopped moving, I learned, I need to be in better shape before next year's dance.
