Rolanda, our niece, goes to the Ball--Not Once, But Twice!!!

In a previous entry, I mentioned, tongue in cheek, that our tickets to the ball must have been lost in the mail.  And, as you all know, we were thrilled to get a nice room in Salinas where we could spend the day and night watching the Inauguration, and see all the nighttime festivities...

So...it was quite a surprise, when our niece, Rolanda, emailed us a photo album showing her in the main crowd watching the swearing in, and some pictures of her going to one of the balls...but, wait a minute, we see that she, not only went to one Ball, The Virginia Ball, but she changed dresses and accessories, and continued on to the Southern Ball...wow!!!  Are we impressed!!!

Take a look at several of the pics she sent...

 Rolanda is second from the left in baby blue hat...

 The TV said that the temp was 25 degrees right then, and it felt like 15!!!

 

 The Biden's take a spin...

 

 

 Second ball gown, second Ball--not bad considering that the morning was spent standing for hours in freezing weather...

 And maybe the last carefree evening for this power couple for the next eight years...

 

Well, Rolanda...we are proud of you...thanks for sharing these with us...

For those who don't know, Rolanda is the daughter of Roxanne's Brother Ward, and his wife Vee...and Rolanda is an executive in a leading Eco-friendly company living and working in Washington D.C.
