My Family's Got Talent

On the last day at Bass Lake someone decided to have a talent show. We had the whole day to come up with something for the show. After dinner Tia Mary and boys come to our campsite and everyone who was participating drew a playing card to determine the order of the show.

First up was The Chone. She told a story about Rock Obama and a joke that he was told. He didn't get the joke and was asking everyone and finally he got it and was cracking up.




Up next was Day-day. She has recently discovered that she has a talent for trimming bangs. So with her lovely assistant Bubbs she demonstrated her bang cutting techniques.


Tia Uh-laine and Dexter did some sweet tricks, like giving super high fives and rolling over.



Somewhere in there I did a spoken word all about our beloved Bass Lake which I will share with you tomorrow....


and then my parents went up. They started their act by saying that it was dedicated to their grandchildren. Then the proceeded to do the Peanut Butter Jelly time dance complete with water bottles filled with rocks for music and booty shaking to the "baseball bat" part. (if you dont know what I am talking about click here


As they finished their act I looked over at The Phi and her jaw was on the floor and her eyes were wider than I have ever seen them and she was frozen in her spot. When my Mom walked off the "stage" The Phi ran over to her and said "Nana THAT WAS SO.......AWESOME". The kid was floored at how cool her grandparents are. haha

Next up we have Tia Mary and Tio Miguel who called their act "Dancing Under the Stars" and they grooved to an Elvis Crespo salsa number.


Arnie did an act where he showed us all how to make fart noises with his hands . haha


Then it was Mikeys turn. The same Mikey who's Senior Pictures I did not that long ago. Like most teenagers in America Mickey is a bit obsessed with the Twilight movie. So he used his acting skills. (Seriously he did commercials as a kid) and he reenacted a scene from the Twilight movie. He did the "say it, say it....vampire scene" and played both Edward and Bella. He was so serious but I was laughing so hard I had tears streaming down my face. WHY IN THE WORLD DIDN'T ANYONE VIDEO TAPE THIS?????



So there a vote and a tie then another vote and it was decided that Mikey and Me were the big winners of the first annual Bass Lake talent show!
