BIG weekend for Canyon

First, even though we were told the last dance was the last dance of the school year, there was a surprise dance this Friday!  It was beach themed so we dressed him up the best we could (in mom's shirt)!
At the dance, there was a new video screen, Canyon had to go right up and check that out.

Sahara said Canyon's friends weren't there and he seemed kind of bored.  She also said it appeared it was 'by invite only' and might have been an honor roll dance.  He was invited, but the rest of his class wasn't, which is strange.

Eventually though, he had a dance with 2 girls.
As you can see, no one hardly dressed up.  A lot of the kids bought the t-shirt for the dance and wore it.  I wish the kids would get more into the themed dances.  Well, when ever possible, Canyon dresses the part.

Next was the first baseball game.
He got his new shirt and was ready to go.
As usual, he was the catcher for his team.
It's a hit...and after 5 years of playing, he decided he would FINALLY run the bases without an escort.

After that he went home, showered, and dressed up for the pageant.  He was in one 2-3 years ago and we had to go quite a ways for it.  This time it was closer to home in a brand new school.  It was really nice.  A lot less participants which made it go a little faster too.
He wore his khaki pants that are just about too short, a borrowed dress shirt from Jared, and a new tie.  
Only 4 kids in his age group.

He was escorted by a girl named Taylor (that Jared happened to know).

Crowned a KING.

They had adults there as well and this guy, 66 year old Roy with DS and his guitar was just too cute.

As soon as we got in the car he asked, 'Nana-Papa now?' because last time we went straight from the pageant to visit with Nana and Papa in Eureka Springs.  I can't believe he can hold onto memories like that.  

At home he emptied his goody bag.  He got a shirt...
A mug, metal, key chain, dog tags, pencil, magnet, photo book, coloring books, and a stuffed Eeyore.
