Queen of Hearts Dance 2012

Entrance to gym where theme for dance was Neverland.
The big dance of the year at Broughton High School in Raleigh is the Queen of Hearts Dance held each February.  Grandsons Zach, a junior, and Brooks, a freshman, attended the dance this past Saturday night, and I went over to their house to see them all dressed up in their tuxedos.  It's hard for me to believe they are so grown up.

While the boys were getting ready for the dance, little sister Grace and her friend Margaret were having fun playing the piano for GPat.

Younger brother Tyler and Dad were off in Winston-Salem at a basketball tournament and missed all the excitement.

Brooks and Zach left separately to meet their friends and their dates.  They do things very differently than when I was in high school.  They go in groups of six or seven couples after meeting at the home of one of the girls for picture taking, first by limo for dinner at a restaurant, then to the dance and later the parents will host the group at a "breakfast" at the home of one of the girls.
