Father/Daughter Dance

(Look -- her dimple is showing!)

Our local YMCA recently hosted it's first ever (at least I think it was the first) Father/Daughter dance. Maddy said it really should have been called the "Daddy & Maddy" dance -- I suppose because that rhymes and she felt so special going to it! In fact, Mr. Tennis reported it was really crowded and . . . fun! Even though I wanted to tag along, I didn't --because it was for daughters and their dads after all.

By all reports, it was a great success. They danced to some Taylor Swif*t songs and, of course, everyone's favorite . . . Y M C A (Maddy says Dad needs to work on his YMCA actions)!! Maddy received a beautiful red rose and after the dance, they went to out to dinner -- Maddy's choice - McD's What a special evening! I think Mr. Tennis has been talking about it even more than Maddy! :)

Are you wondering about Maddy's dress? She couldn't decide what to wear, so we picked this Matilda Jan*e "cowgirl" dress/top with leggings. Maddy's brother said -- "what -- she wore a cow dress??" Yes, a cute cow dress!
I'm glad she wore it because I think she has just about grown out of it already! I love that you can see her dimple in these photos -- I hardly ever get any photos of them -they are very elusive, but oh so beautiful! (I'm not biased at all, am I?!).

What a fun event, our YMCA does this too. It is so wonderful that the little girls really get to feel special. She looks adorable in her dress. I love that she wanted to go to McDonalds for dinner!

Sounds like a really special time together! Love that they had McDonalds for dinner. So sweet!

I love this, and it's so wonderful that she and her daddy can spend this special time together. They both look so happy in the pics. Had to laugh about dancing to YMCA and daddy needing to work on his 'actions.' so cute!

Have a great Wednesday. :)

Oh, gosh, you will want to frame this one!

So sweet and a beautiful memory for them both, I am sure!

Our park district holds a similiar function and seeing the 2 together always tugs at my heart!

Somehow they never look as grown up with Daddy by their side!

Heh. I love that she's already coaching him on his dance moves. Can you imagine what that will look like in ten years? *snicker*

I love that she picked McDonald's for dinner. Jadyn would approve of that. :)
