ROCKY'S HAPPY DANCE

Art and Becca were at Band Camp yesterday, Zack was asleep and Dickidoo was at work, so it was just Rocky and I... and my recently recovered Little Baby Nikon and we took off in search of trouble to get into.  We ended up at a park we had never known existed before, and spent a very pleasant afternoon enjoying its many delights.  Not to be out upstaged by her older sister's 'Twilight Dance', Rocky scrambled up a 4 foot stone wall and celebrated with her very own 'Happy Dance'.  Once again we are featuring Cast In Bronze on the Carillon Bells as the background music.  We had to cut the dance short in order to beat the storm which was moving in over the mountains.

It rained off and on for the rest of the day and through the night.  I think its safe to say that our drought, at least for the year, is over.  Becca and her friend from down the street did some celebrating of their own with a mud dance.  My front yard is probably the only place in Colorado that is muddy.  Everywhere else is now covered with lush green vegetation.  I must admit though, I really do have the nicest mud on the block!  I made Becca stand on the patio in the rain until she was rinsed off before she could come in the house.  What a mean mommy huh?  As for her friend, her parents will probably never let her come down the street to our house again after that.

It looks like you had fun creating your video!  It's good to have some one on one time, too.  Glad you got some rain.  We need some here.

Seems like every generation has to create their own Woodstock.

Mom and Dad watched Rocky's Happy Dance and wondered how many #s she lost during the dance???  Go Figga, sisters can't be outdone by the other, can they?
Give her a hug from Grandma and Grandpa on a good production.  Kudos to the photographer/director and producer too.
