Walter Family "Au Revoir" Talent Show
Our Friends got together and threw us a lovely party. Every family had to participate in the show and we had so many wonderful acts! We even had a video performance from the Liffords! The rain poured down as the guests arrived, but the kids spread out in the big room and played games and the grownups sipped wine and prepared then performance area.
The show was fabulous in every act. It was SO MUCH FUN. Davis and Michael and Samuel performed Eleanor Rigby with Sam on guitar, Davis on keyboards and vocals and M on bass. They were great and I was very proud. Samuel was so nervous. He ended up under the table afterwards and I was worried for him, but I soon let it go, because I saw my mom disappear under the table with him and I knew he was in the very best hands.
Michael also played with Nacho Mama, the band formerly known as Pappy Hour and they were great. I am a total groupie.
We had a dramatic reading of poetry and a beautiful essay on Friendship. We had lots of upbeat and fun songs and joke telling and general cuteness. I loved all of it.
After the show, we ate a potluck dinner. The rain had stopped by this time, so all the kids put on their swim clothes and ran for the pool. There were so many children! When did we all have so many children?
Several parents watched the kids swim, while another group headed down to the bocce ball court for a game. I love bocce ball and I was so happy to be able to play with my friends.
The party was over by 8ish which is my kind of party. I loved it. I am so grateful for my friends and my mama who threw this fabulous party.
