Life of the Party!

That would be my girl! This past weekend we went to a barn dance/pot luck. Square dancing and all. It was a great time!
(Sorry about the photo quality. The dust made for a bubbly appearance.)
It was at a neighbors house that we have recently become friends with. They are a lovely homeschooling family and Luke takes guitar lessons from there boy. We really did not know anyone there and I'd say there was well over 100 guests. Regardless it was fun to watch everyone dancing it up and Leah made friends within minutes of arrival.

I love that girls expressions! She so reminds me of myself in my younger days. Right full of it!


I will end this brief post with a yummy recipe I just made up. It comes from June's Martha Stewart Magazine that I have on borrow from the library (btw one of my FAVORITE places to visit!)
"Basic Vinaigrette"
Shake
1/4 cup vinegar
2 teaspoons Dijon Mustard
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Then add 3/4 cup olive oil and shake well to emulsify.
I mixed up in a canning jar.
Tonight we will each our first garden lettuce of the season drizzled with the above. Off to get dinner started! :)

Their expressions are sooooo delightful! Almost like when a baby laughs when you blow it's tummy! I LOVE square dancing! Wonder why it hasn't become more mainstream? Sometimes it seems like all the wrong things do!

I went to a few square dances when I was a kid. They were a lot of fun. Nothing like a barn party!

What a happy party! And hope you enjoy that first garden salad - I had my first a few weeks ago and it was certainly a taste to remember :-)

That looks like so much fun! It's a shame people don't have things like that more often for families to enjoy together!
