Picnic Point Panther Dance Party

The 5th grade at my kids's school hosted a "sporty neon dance" to fund-raise for their end of the year party. How could you pass up  this glorious opportunity for sheer entertainment? Well, Aimee did, and here's what she was missing out on.

Kayla, like all of the other kids, could not resist the call of "Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)", each of the four times it was played
