Our first Ball!

Adam and I were really excited to attend the Oil Barons Ball this year. It is a fun event put on at the end of each year by the API (American Potrolium Institute). Since Adam was an active member this year after we moved out here to California we got to go. This whole evening is a, thank you for all your hard work, kind of thing.

Adam and I, ready for a night out on the town! Thank you dad for the dress!
Adam is trying to take a picture of my hair. I wish we had gotten a better picture of it. This was the first time I ever attempted doing an up-do myself and it turned out really well if I do say so myself! You will just have to take my word for it because there is no picture for evidence.
The Band was rock'en! They played mostly oldies but we really enjoyed getting out there and dancing, we even did the conga line and the electric slide!

and the dance floor was hopping. This is what it looked like from the second the band started up. Men untucked their shirts and women took off their shoes (that means business!).

Well after an amazing meal, meeting new fun people, enjoying some wine, and dancing the night away it was time to go home. We were some of the last people to leave!
Mom and Jim partied on the dance floor for most of the night! We all had such a wonderful time!
