This weekend, we went to the state Elks convention and Lauren got to go (for the 4th time in her short life!) and she loved it. She made friends with the Grand exalted Ruler (the national president) and his wife. They gave her their pins (proof of meeting them) and she was thrilled. She even hugged them each time she saw them. She also went to some of the hospitality rooms (parties) and ate some snacks and met lots of people who would all have this conversation with her:
"Hi! What's your name?"
"My name's Lauren. What's your name?"
"My name is _____. How old are you?"
"I'm three. How old are you?"
Very cute and always got a chuckle out of the person talking to her.
Then we went to the dance. There was a lot of music and a dance floor complete with a disco ball and Lauren was in dancing heaven. During the second set, the singers were dressed like Elvis and sang and danced and handed out red scarves. Only the best "dancers" got a scarf to keep, and guess who got one? That's right. Lauren. She was so happy!
Finally, she said, "Momma, I so tired from all that dancing." So off to bed she went.
It was a great time.
