Inaugural Ball

IMG_8878001

We went to our Elementary School's Inaugural Ball last Friday night. We went with Jeff, Karen, Bailey, and Brady. It's Bailey and Brady's School. This is the school that Katie will start in 2010. Most of our neighbors were there. It was a fun night. They had a Uncle Sam on Stilts. Katie was freaked out by him. Our local Congressman Patrick Murphy came to the Ball to speak. Then they had a DJ. The kids had a "Ball" dancing and running around the gym. At the end of the night they released Red, White, and Blue balloons from the ceiling. I spent most of my night helping Karen at the refreshment table.
