Daddy Daughter Dance 2016

Daddy Daughter Dance has become quite the tradition!  I believe this is Addison's 4th time attending and she looks forward to it for months!  We scour the internet for a fancy, modest, dress (I can tell that the teen years will be rough in this department...the selection is few!!).  And she plans all the details of their date!  Manicures, dress, hair...a tiny bit of make-up.  She eats it all up! They like to get to the dance right on time to get pictures early and stay until the very end...soaking in all the wild and fun dancing that they can. I think they both go a little nuts-o on the dance floor!  

She got to go with her BFF Kaylee again this year and met up with a half a dozen other girls/dads for dinner after the dance.  

Such a treat to see cousin, Claire there with her dad!  Addy just adores Claire!

Love this pic! Captures them both!  

Late night dinner with friends (Carvers, Shakespeares, Bjorns)

I'm sad to see her move on from this stage, but also glad that her first "dates" were with her adoring dad!

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?

More about me here.
