They joined Princess' friend Virginia and her daddy, who also just happens to be a good friend of the High Roller's, for supper at a Japanese Hibachi restaurant before the dance. Naturally, I wasn't there to observe things first hand, but the High Roller said the girls giggled and chatted throughout their supper and used very grown up manners... no dresses were harmed during the meal.
She caught a second burst of energy once she got home, however, as she excitedly told me and her siblings about all the fun she had and showed off the beautiful mylar butterfly balloon her daddy let her bring home... and many fights over who can hold the balloon. The committee for the Pike Road Father Daughter Dance did an amazing job of putting this event together, and I am very grateful to them for their time and efforts.
I was so excited for her to get to experience how she should be treated on a fun evening out, and how gentlemen should treat a lady, regardless of her age. She's very lucky to have a daddy that can show her what she should expect and demand in her future relationships... both by his everyday interactions with me as his wife and sweetheart, as well as how special he makes her feel on occasions like this one. This will become a yearly occasion that they will eagerly anticipate, and in a year or two, both of our daughters will get to enjoy this special night. Precious memories were and will be made that we can all treasure... holding on tight to them.
