The Florida Happy Dance

We spent the beginning of November on the other side of the United States... in Florida!  Last year, we were incredibly blessed to have our short movie, "Him and Her", win grand prize in the video contest we were apart of.  Since that prize covered the trip for half of us, we decided to take the whole family and make it a trip of a lifetime.  And believe me: it was an incredible trip!  I felt so grateful, so humbled, so thankful that the Lord graciously poured out such blessing on each of us.  Wow.  We were able to do so many amazing things as He orchestrated everything in His perfect timing.  I am so thankful to the Lord.

While on our big Florida vacation, we made sure to get clips of some spontaneous--yet frequent for us--dancing to the classic "Happy Song".  I edited all our footage, making it into a video memoir!  Filmed all over Florida... in the MCO airport, Disney World, Epcot, on the road, etc.
And if you've ever wondered... this video does a pretty good job of summing up what goes on behind closed doors: dance grooves and comedy routines.  What can I say?  Our parents are really good teachers!

I have lots of pictures to post, so hopefully I will get those up before next year.  (Just kidding!)

I really think that your family and mine should have traded locations! I happen to know that song a bit better than I would like because people down hear really like it! And they seem to be just fine with dancing down the sidewalk almost the way you all were doing it! (What's funny is, it was to that same song!) They tried to get me to join in, but I'm to stiff and northern to have any part in it! ~ Your family would have fit right in! ~ You should consider the swap ~ I'd take your long winters any day! ;) Though, seriously, the Lord has placed us all where we are for a very good reason and I really am content. Thank you for sharing your video with all of us who are too "proper" to do such things but love to watch others at it! :)

Well, you have to remember that our original location was California. ;) I really don't think your dancing depends on where live... it just depends on how you like to express your joy and energy. Other people has different outlets. :)
