Every time we grow accustomed to spending most of our day outdoors, this too cool spring keeps driving us back inside.
We actually had to freshen up our Dance Party song list, adding "Yakkety Yak", the chipmunks version of "Witch Doctor," and European superstar Mika's "Big Girl (You are Beautiful)."
Our renewed commitment to daily dance parties helped us discover the newest family star... Elliot has moves. Reminiscent of her sister (at 9 months rather than 7 though), Elliot wiggles, hops, and flops to the beat. She even sings along!
With both girls dancing, the party is a riotous celebration of silly. Maya likes to add funny costumes, not only her tutu, but sometimes her doctor's coat or the firefighters hat. I'm awfully glad all of our windows open into the backyard... I suspect my neighbors would risk the cool air and the drizzle to post a video of our latest dance move - dubbed the backward firefighter - on YOUTube.
So until global warming kicks in and brings us up to a humid 90 degrees for the next 5 months, we dance.
