Cultural Nights... Another great thing about Thunderbird

This past Saturday was "America Night" at Thunderbird. Every month or so, Thunderbird hosts Cultural Nights where they celebrate one part of the world. This past Saturday night was "America Night" and North and South America was celebrated. They had wonderful food, decorations, and a show put on by the North and South American Clubs.

Here is a picture I took of one of the clubs performing a Mexican dance. As you'll see below, Lance loved looking at the women dancing and at their bright dresses.




Spence held Lance up so he could see better, he couldn't take his eyes off of the action.



There was a really funny fashion show in which students would model the state they came from. Ty Hanks was "Mr. Utah" - you can see him in some missionary attire on the far left. He dressed as a hiker/skiier, and then stripped down to his missionary clothes. It was a very creative fashion show to say the least.



Afterwards we came over to our apartment to celebrate Erika's 26th b-day. She got really embarrassed when we sang to her - as you can see her face matches her shirt, but I still think this is an adorable picture of her. Happy 26th B-day today Er (November 5th)!



Here is the goofy gang. We were quite impressed that the pic turned out being on automatic, not bad!

I know you posted your halloween pics a few posts down, but you guys looked SO cute! The chicken and farmer thing was adorable. And isn't it wonderful to be able to swim in November? Yes, it is. One last thing...we went to Last Chance today. Heaven! Well, a really dirty, grimy type of heaven, but we got some great finds!
