Part of dress rehearsal is finding the right costumes for everyone and making sure there is a continuity to them. Loved the dress that BH has on in the top photo, but to find something similar that would fit the baby was almost impossible.
Love the way this turned out. This is We Are America, which opened the patriotic portion of the show.
This starts Step In Time. This is a salute to the different branches of the armed forces and the men and women who served in those branches. There's a long history of Air Force in my family and hubby's. Really, though, my favorite part of this is the flying of the plane while they sing the Air Force anthem.
Up we go, into the wild blue yonder...
JB was telling a story of how it's fun to watch the audience lean with them while this part of the song is happening. That was all it took for me. I couldn't help it. Every time they sang this song I had to fly with them. Except once. Well, kinda. I just didn't lean as much. It was fun and silly and I am all about that!
Grand Old Flag was next. This is where the kids came out and tapped during the music break. They got to choreograph the tap portion and I think they did a fantastic job. So proud of them and all their hard work!
These should have been swapped, but whatever. This is the end of Grand Old Flag. After this, the group sang our National Anthem. I always tear up at the National Anthem.
It was nice to see some of our veterans from the different services and be able to thank them. I also liked that God and country was together. I feel like God is being taken out of our country so it meant something special to me. It became one of the most well attended shows we did. And for good reason.
Have a great day.
