And the dress I shopped for in my closet fit. It's been a long time since it zipped. Wohoo!
They had a cocktail hour, dinner, awards and dancing. The DJ really got people involved. Youngest hit it off with a few of the girls and she was on the dance floor having a great time. My VERY serious son was dragged on the floor by one of the mom's and being to polite to say no went. He actually started to loosen up a bit and joined the rest of the cadets on the floor.
The music wasn't too loud and hubby and I spent a lot of time on the dance floor ourselves. It was such a fun evening. The best fire department dinner I've been to. There were a lot of laughs and some joking but no one getting stupid. I look forward to more of these events.
And I'm wearing 4 inch heels in this picture. The beads were part of a game we played at dinner. I managed to win a few extra strands. And son's tie didn't make it until dinner. :( He's still handsome though - just like his daddy.
