On April 22 we had a lot of things going on! Lydia had a harp recital at the Springville Art Museum, the girls had their final ballet performance, and I thought Lydia had her final performance for musical theater. Because I can not keep track of dates lately, I was completely wrong about that and Suzanne drove all the way down from Salt Lake only to discover the performance was the following Friday. Oops. To top it all off, the girls had the Daddy Daughter Dance at the end of the day. It was a busy Saturday!
At her harp recital, Lydia pulled a trick from both Mom and Dad and completely forgot her piece (which she played over twenty times a day to perfection before the recital). I always had performance anxiety and experienced memory slips regularly, and Abe related that at his first piano recital he completely forgot what he was supposed to play and just made something up on the spot. We were proud of Lydia for persevering to the end!
Also, we loved the Springville Art Museum. It was also fun to see Abe’s grandfather’s art on prominent display!
After the harp recital, we went home and got ready for the girls’ final performance of The Lion King. The actual recital was, no joke, four hours long. We hightailed it outta there as soon as the girls finished their number because we thought we were going to be late for Lydia’s final musical theater performance. Oy ve.
After the recital, we rushed over to Scenic View Academy, where Lydia’s final musical performance was supposed to be. I realized when we arrived and the doors were locked that the performance was supposed to be the following Friday.
Since Suzanne had driven all the way down, we decided to use the time by taking a Qualtrics tour. The gardens were gorgeous and the kids enjoyed playing in and outside of Qualtrics. The only picture we have is this one:
Then we headed to Zupas for dinner and raced home to get ready for the Daddy Daughter Dance. The girls, Abe and Tom had a fabulous time. I know the girls and Abe look forward to this event all year long. They love dancing, dressing up, and basically everything about it. This year they had a fifties theme.
And that was the last to-do on our crazy April Saturday!!
