Mia played with the train table for the first time tonight, an accomplishment both she and her brother were equally excited about.
After Luca’s Christmas performance there’s been some talk about Luca’s surprising dance skills 🙂 Here we take a look back to understand the progression.
Early on Luca found himself comfortable with the crowd. Who’s in the circle? Luca’s in the circle.
Having mastered his showmanship Luca spent hours refining his control and balance. 40 seconds in to this video Luca demonstrates his mastery with a single leg backwards roundhouse.
Getting older ain’t easy and sometimes it comes with timeouts. Here Luca explores his darker movements while drowning his timeout sorrows in bubbly water.
Time for free jam improv
Of course to become a complete dance you have to work on your partnering skills. Here Luca and Autumn pair improv to Mumford and Sons aka “Na Na Nuts”
Putting all the pieces together we have soul, functional movement, partnering, and improv. Here Luca also introduces us to the the “pogo stick” for the first time
Along with dance Luca is always trying to improve his rhythm and vocal acuity
Today was a special day. Grammie and Pop Pop came up and took Luca and us to Walking With Dinosaurs The Arena Spectacular at the Moda Center. Of course Luca is well versed in his dinosaurs, having accumulated a virtual library of dinosaur information, watched every dinosaur series he could find, and accumulated quite the model/toy dinosaur collection. Probably the best series we’ve seen so far has been the BBC Walking With Dinosaurs that this event is based on so we were very excited.

In our seats and ready for the show!
Here come the dinosaurs!!!
Getting up close with the Brachiosaurus
The show was amazing and the dinosaurs were incredibly well done. Such a great treat for all of us.
When it got a little intense Luca pulled up his hood and displayed his protective plates
Momma and her baby. The main take away here was… Don’t mess with momma.
We had a great time and couldn’t recommend the show to anyone enough. Special thanks to Grandma and Grandpa for watching Autumn while we went walking with dinosaurs!
