A post-dinner performance treat

One evening after dinner, my children decided that it was a perfect time for a picnic. We packed a little picnic basket and a picnic mat, and trooped out to somewhere nearby. It was late - maybe 8ish - but my girls were in their element of childlike wonder, exclaiming about how beautiful everything was, the stars, the breeze etc.

Suddenly Bubbles told Roboman that her sister and her were going to perform for us. Without missing a beat, Bun immediately took her place next to her sister on top of a bench.

We were treated to a ballet performance followed by a monkey dance, and a grand finale of Kungfu Panda moves. (Bubbles gave a running commentary along with the performance by the way, and her sidekick was an ever enthusiastic one who followed instructions pretty well.)

I took these grainy photos with a hand shaking from all my laughing, and they have cheered me up many times since that magical evening.
