Dancetastic Time at Nationals! Tweet 3rd July 20133/07/13 Amy's Blog Amy Hanten 0 Comments Ireland and her dance team from Barb’s Centre for Dance in Green Bay were so excited to make to Nationals again this summer! Once again we packed up the car with a few stops along the way and headed to Virginia Beach! It’s a really cool place! Our hotel was right on the beach with a gorgeous view out over the ocean. We’ve been here for about a week and we’ve had a blast! There are about 100 families here from Green Bay so, that kind of makes it feel like home! It was like one big a party in our hotel lobby every night. You know us cheese heads! Some mom’s even brought Wisconsin Cheese and Sausage to munch on! Gotta love that! Yes, we’ve spent a lot of time at the Virginia Beach Convention Center (gorgeous place) where the competition is being held, but we managed to squeeze in some beach time. We even went parasailing. It was supposed to be just Ireland and a few of her dance team members. At the last minute, somehow I got talked into doing it too. Yikes! But, no worries as you see I’m still here, so it’s all good! I’ll have to blog about that experience some time but not sure I want to share the pictures of me in a swimsuit! Lol! Anyway, back to the dance team. They rocked it! As you can see Ireland (front row, middle) and her team were all smiles after news that 3 of their dances took First Place Platinum! And, two of their dances advanced to the final “Dance Showdown” which meant another night in Virginia Beach. Who am I to complain! More great seafood! It’s been a fantastic trip and the Green Bay dancers, who were competing with teams from all over the country, danced their hearts out! Too Cool! Time to head home and see our boys! We’ve missed Bob and Riley a bunch! I think they’ve missed us and my cooking too! We’re all meeting up at the cottage for a fun-filled 4th of July! Can’t wait! Hope you have a wonderful 4th of July with your clan too! What are you up to? I love hearing from you! Please share!
