Amy's Bat Mitzvah

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!
