Over UEA we headed up North. Addy got to attend a dance convention called Epic. It was held in Midway,UT so we left on Thursday and stayed at Tina's. The kids all got to play and it was great weather. Friday we got up, left Dawson with Tina because it was Mason's birthday party on Saturday so he was having a sleepover that night with his cousins at Mason's house. Bry, Addy, Ky and myself made our way to beautiful Midway. We stayed at the Homestead, which was where the convention was at. I really enjoyed the Homestead. This convention was by invitation only and only 5 studios in the state were invited! Pretty cool!

The whole On Stage Crew that went-making funny faces
Addy's dance started at 3 so after she was settled, Bry hit up the golf course and I hit up Park city with Ky man in tow! It was so much fun to have just him with me. That night we got some grub, picked up Addy and were just all plum tuckered out!
Saturday after Addy's dance started Bryan, Ky and I once again hit up Park City. We spent the day shopping and eating-pretty good day in my book! That afternoon about 4 we all gathered in the convention rooms so the girls could show off what they learned. That was fun and really amazing. So glad Addy got the opportunity to go and learn and be exposed to all these really amazing dancers/teachers! After they show off all the dances, they passed out scholarships for next year(which means they get to come back for free). Addy was slightly bummed she didn't get one but said this to me, "Mom I am going to work really hard this year and work super hard when I come back next year so I can get one of those scholarships". Melt my heart. I love that she is realizing that anything is possible if we put our minds to it and work really hard at our dreams. I hope her dream comes true-I love to see her passion!

That's a pretty awesome thing to be able to attend! She told me a little about it and it sounds well worth the trip. Oh, and the shopping helps! :)
