Dancing Queen

Last Friday night, I went on a date with a new woman for the first time in 19 years.

Our first school Father/Daughter dance.

K likes to do things right, so she ordered a wrist corsage for A.

And it coordinated with her dress, purse, shoes, and headband, of course.

The dance was held in a small ballroom at a local country club.

A lot of the time, the girls danced by themselves, mostly because the dads had no idea what the songs were. Of course, I’m totally current on my Katy Perry.

I did manage to get out on the dance floor a time or two.

K also purchased A some shoes just for the occasion.  Of course, they lasted about 3 minutes before joining the rest of the girls' shoes on the side of the dance floor.

The had a slide show of father/daughter pictures.  Of course, this really brought out the dads' cameras.

I was no exception.

A had a great time dancing with her friends.

And bustin’ a move of her own.  And has anybody else used the phrase “bustin’ a move” in the past 20 years?

Yes, this is actually a conga line.

A likes to twirl.

Why won’t this song/dance die gracefully?

Since A’s dress incorporated glitter, I had a good excuse for coming home covered in it.

And K definitely didn’t mind me dancing with this beautiful young lady.

    Seems I never did this…with two sons. Probably better for all involved since, as you know, I have two left feet. “Busting a move.”. Never heard of it. Macarena…have heard of that; just last week on the high seas. I think it was GMM who could really handle that and the line dancing.
    Now all you have to do is wait about 7-8 years and there will be “boys” in the pictures. Loved the vids.

    Kelly’s taken Anna to 2 Daddy Daughter Dances so far and if you asked her, I’m almost sure she’d say they’ve been the highlight of her life so far. At least they’d make the top 2 if you threw in DisneyWorld.

    As a card-carrying Daddy’s Girl, it makes my heart melt to see daddies who are teaching their girls what it means to be treated like ladies. I’m so thankful for my husband and guys like you, Not Ned, who love their daughters well.
