Popinjay - Innocent

This week's Popinjay prompt is "Innocent".  I knew right away what picture I would use for this.

This past Saturday night I attended a Fundraiser Gala event.  The church group I'm involved with has been putting these Galas together for a few years now, and proceeds from the tickets, the silent auction, raffles and donations go to a local children's hospital.  It's our way of giving back to the community, and it's an excuse to get all dressed up.  Our very own adult prom.

But it is also a family event.  Everyone brings their kids, we have dinner, and we dance the night away.

As the adults had a few drinks, mingled, chatted, and danced...the kids were having a party of their own.  Creating their own dance moves, having the time of their lives.  We spent a good portion of the evening just watching the kids have a blast in all their innocence...

Here, they created their very own "conga line" and made their way around the event hall, weaving in and out of tables...such beautiful spirits, and wonderful innocence!
