Sock Hop

Saturday evening was a Sock Hop in our community.  Man, it was cool!

I had an absolute ball.  We twisted, Hokey Pokeyed, and the Slide....my body is paying the price, but it was worth every ache.

I will have more pics later....here are just a few before the party got started....



Of course, Elvis showed up!


There was a hoola hoop contest....



Centerpieces were big Root Beer Mugs....and yes, we had Root Beer Floats....Hamburgars and Fries!




This couple are fantastic dancers!


This was the DJ.....


I rested up real good so I could have a good time....
I caught up with my magazine reading!!

Hope you had a great weekend too.....Hopefully by Monday, I will be able to move again!

BTW - Let's Twist Again....that song got way longer than I remembered it...(or maybe my body got a little older!!)

What fun. I was never allowed to attend a sock hop at school so I missed out on all that fun. How neat to be able to enjoy it all over again as an adult- Blessings- xo Diana

ps. Didya know we had another baby grandson last night?>)

LOL I remember sock hops from junior high! Sweaty teens dancing the night away in the gym until 10:00, always hoping that the boy you had a crush on would come over, take your hand, and lead you onto the dance floor.... Glad you got to re-live those times, CeeKay! I hadn't thought of those dances for a long time. Oh and I bet those songs DID seem longer! stretch out, girl! :-) Sue

I love the 50's and all the fun music. I'm actually a hoola hoop champ from a sock hop I attended once!

Rebecca said...

You know what? I would soooo do this. Sounds like a blast and sooo much fun.

When my MR. is OUT of school I'm going to throw a huge parteeee and dance the night away. COME ON NOVEMBER!
