Ethnic Festival

OK .. many apologies on my part for not posting as much. Still recovering from pneumonia & pleurisy, but I'm feeling a lot better (still hurting a bit and coughing up junk now that it's allergy season) ... so I'm ready to start posting again about the girls!

Friday night was our annual Ethnic Festival showcase. Every year Kansas City puts on an Ethnic Festival that showcases countries around the world. They're represented by people who live in KC and they make crafts, food, etc that you can buy as if you were in that country. They also showcase talent also, and those are 30 minutes blocks performed over 2 days and one night. It's a BLAST to go to this festival, and we can find food for about $1-3 to sample and try.
The girls have been dancing at this festival for the past 3 years, and the Pipe Band usually performs along w/ them, so that's a neat treat to watch and listen to also.
Here are some pics of our night:

This is my mom and the girls. They're eating crab rangoons & egg rolls. How very exotic of a food for them .. they eat them almost a few times a month. SIGH

This is Katie in the front w/ the white dress. She's dancing the Highland Fling. The other girls are wearing a traditional kilt outfit while Katie is wearing a National dress outfit. She danced another dance earlier that I couldn't get a good picture of, and she had to wear a national dress with that dance.

These are the "babies" of the dance group -- ranging in age from 4-6. Maddie is the 2nd from the left (w/o a vest on). They are dancing the basic pas de basques & highcuts.

The girls next competition will be in MacPherson, Kansas on September 22nd. :)
