“Our homes are to be more than sanctuaries; they should also be places where God’s Spirit can dwell, where the storm stops at the door, where love reigns & peace dwells." ~ Thomas S. Monson

~Dance Festival 2008

California Dreamin'
“You can have a good time. Of course you can! We want you to have fun. We want you to enjoy life…. We want you to be robust and cheerful, to sing and dance, to laugh and be happy” ~Gordon B. Hinckley After many months, weeks, days & hours of practice and driving it was all worth it! 12 stakes and over 3,000+ youth. The kids had a blast. It is an experience they said they will never forget and met many new friends.

It was emotional for us in the stands watching. They did a beautiful job and we are so proud of all of them. Ashley danced to a copuple Beach Boys songs, Kelsey danced to "Oye Como Va" & Austin danced to "Get'Cha Head in the Game".

What a blast! I wish we lived closer so I could have seen it!
All the pictures are great! Austin is funny in a few of them, my favorite one of him is the one of he, Kels, and Ash!
Beautiful girls!
I love the quote from Hinckley at the beginning of the post!
They will never forget that experience!
