Zumba All Night Long

Last month several of us participated in Zumba at Relay for Life. It was such a fun night. We started by taking my friend Charis’ Friday night Zumba class at the Andover YMCA and then we all met for dinner and ice cream — basically just killing time so that people would stay awake and not bail — before our 11 PM Zumba session at Relay for Life.

Several of us are part of the Zumba Wear Outfit of the Day group on Facebook and that week just happened to be metallic week so we all donned our best and shiniest outfits! It gave me a reason to wear my holographic tank I got at ZINCON last year.

Here’s a pic of us that Brian took at Oak and Pie as we were waiting for the rest of our group to show up.

I was very excited to drink my drink.

Obligatory pictures of food, naturally.

Brian and I shared some meatballs and a chicken bacon ranch pizza.

Here are the other pizzas that people had.

I’ve slept since then and I, unfortunately, cannot remember what they’re called.

The all looked quite delicious! The one Brian and I got sure was!

Afterwards we still had lots of time to kill so we went to Churn & Burn for dessert. Some people had never been there.

In the past Relay for Life has been at Bishop Carroll High School. This year they changed the venue to Wichita Collegiate, which actually worked to our advantage because most of us are East-siders. We didn’t have to drive clear across town this year. Since it was at Collegiate, it gave us a reason to check out the newer Churn & Burn location on Central and Greenwich.

Charis gave it her seal of approval.

Rose changed her whole outfit. I just changed my shirt. We planned our matching outfits that night.

It was a nice night for ice cream on the patio.

Then it was time to head over to Wichita Collegiate for the Relay for Life event.

Here are just a few of the pics we took that night.

Here’s a pic of me with Angelisa (left) and Jessica (right). Angelisa is the one who contacts me about volunteering to lead Zumba at the event each year.

It was a beautiful night for dancing! There was a nice breeze and it wasn’t too hot. The weather was absolutely perfect.

At the end of the evening, after everyone had left, as we were walking to our cars, Rose and I were beckoned by the awesome displays. We couldn’t help ourselves. We ended up doing a bunch of after pics.

I had so much fun. I hope the others did too. I love helping with this event. I’m glad they moved it up a few weeks this year. Last year I was at ZINCON during the event and I couldn’t help. Melissa ended up leading the charge. I hope it works out for us to do this again next year. Until then… XOXO, Ching.
