1996 The pyramids were always spectacular! Don't bother looking for Benson, he is surely in the back ready to catch the girls at the top, he had a reputation for never dropping a girl.
1996 My partner that year was awesome...
1996 But I sort of had a crush on this other guy. :) (can you find us?) We always had to sqeeze a large number of us into a small place to get our makeup done. It was a great time to bond.
1997 Sealed the deal for us. We got married a year later.
In 1999, we went back to perform in the pageant.
Even though there is a 1 foot height difference, we got to dance as partners.
We always thought we would go back someday to perform in the pageant with our own family, but 2004 was announced to be the last year of the City of Joseph Pageant. I understand there is a new "Nauvoo" pageant, but I will always remember the City of Joseph, and miss it this time of the year when we performed.
