A few weeks ago, we were able to make a family trip up to CT for a special party to celebrate Amy's 13th birthday; and in the Jewish religion that can also mean that you have a Bat Mitzvah. Before I get too much further, Amy is my mother-in-law's, boyfriend's granddaughter.
The event was held at a country club that we had been to one other time (for Amy's sister's Bat Mitzvah a few years ago). It has a nice area for eating, a bar, and a dance floor. They also have some entertainment for the kids with a magician and DJ and a little candy booth. Emersyn enjoyed the magic and I think she understood some of it :-). Its fascinating to watch her learn and grow. Check out the hula hoop competition pictures. Emersyn gave it her best shot!
