Hello everyone! I hope you’re surviving the summer heat. 😛
2018 is over halfway done! Only 165 days until its 2019. We’ve already had several adventures in the halfway point month of this year and I’m going to try to do a mini series about a few of them.
First up is definitely of highlight of June: a barn dance! Our friend Sam(antha) wanted to have a barn dance in celebration of her birthday, and we got to have it in our shop. There was a lot of sweeping, washing, cleaning up and decorating in preparation, but we all really enjoyed it – even my brothers! 🙂
We started decorating the shop in the morning. We had picked some bouquets and gotten some streamers (which actually didn’t work because the humidity made them go limp) so we set to work setting those up. After a little while Sam’s family came and brought more decorations! We put those up, ate lunch, and changed into our barn dance clothes.
Allison and Sam had basically identical outfits! I took this picture from the loft in the shop.
There were very many dances ranging from simple to confusing, and they were all fun. The most confusing dance was also the dance which I laughed the most in because of how tangled up everyone got. Allison and I finally took a break and took pictures during one of the last dances. Allison took pictures first and then switched out with me. The first three pictures are by her and the rest are the ones I took.
I learned that it is quite difficult to take pictures of large groups of people. You’re bound to have a few interesting expressions whether they’re intentional or not.
After the last dance (Jeff says he could have kept doing that one forever XD) we had supper and some of the kids went down the the huge hay barn and played on the hay bales which was also quite fun.
Hopefully we’ll be able to do another barn dance sometime!
have you ever done a barn dance?
magnolia flowers, daisies, or ferns?
