This weekend Gracie had a date with Daddy...to the Daddy/daughter dance!
The theme this year was '50's. She was not so happy that I made her wear this dress. She would rather have worn some fancy one/ Luckily we had this in our dress up closet so it was easy to find something to wear.
We put her hair in a ponytail and put a scarf in it.
Daddy wore a plain white tee with his jeans rolled up.
She wouldn't admit it, but she was excited to go!
I helped out at the dance. I do it so I can see what's going on. I get to spy and take lots of pics because I'm obsessed with that. I worked the favor table. Check out the adorable glasses and lollipops the girls got!
Sure enough, the couple showed up!
Of course pretty early on, they did a hula hoop contest and you know who had to run over there and enter it?
She did really well but once she had to hula hoop on one foot, it was all over.
Besides the DJ, they had a photo booth set up too. Check it out!
I am serious when I say that this was one of the most adorable things I have ever seen. All the girls were in poodle skirts or something similar. Some even had "pink lady" jackets. All the dads were in white shirts and jeans. It was absolutely darling!
The best part was watching all the dads slow dance with their daughters.
But they did a lot of group dances too like the chicken dance, cha-cha slide, and of course, the twist!
Gracie had a lot of fun with her friends too. Here she is with Lily.
and some of the other girls from her class, Kaelin, Evelyn, and Meryn.
They had all the girls pose in front of the backdrop for a big group shot.
Most of the night though the girls were running around with each other and the dads were left sitting staring at their phones.
But Chuck managed to get Gracie to dance with him a few times.
The part I loved the most was at the end they played "Butterfly Kisses" and all the dads picked up their daughters and danced with them. I totally wanted to cry my eyes out.
Miss Olivia was even there with her daddy. Poor Jackie was sick and couldn't come.
I even got to sneak a pic with Gracie in the photo booth before the end of the night!
How fun was that? Next year Daddy will have 2 dates...Gracie and Evie!
