Their First Ballet Recital

When my niece was in the sixth grade, her parents proudly sat in the audience for her performance as Clara in the production of The Nutcracker Prince. Oh yea, the Prince was played by Bobbie Ritchie ... yep the one and only Kid Rock.


Through the years, my niece was in many plays, talent shows, and dance recitals. Elementary through high school, college and community theater, she is quite talented. I recall her stealing the show several times.

This past weekend my niece and her husband were the proud parents in the audience as their two children had their first ballet recital. Her son is 6 and daughter is 3. As you will see, they both are following in her footsteps as far as stealing the show. It won't take but a minute to figure out which one is my great niece.






Waving, "Hi Nana and Papa"

AWW! I have to get out my daughters 1st recital video now. She's only 5 but the difference between now and that first performance at 2 is so incredible.
