All together, Richard and I attended 8 baseball games this weekend. This was fun, but the highlight of the weekend had to be Sunday night when Richard took the girls to their first dance. For the past couple of years, I have watched my facebook page light up with adorable pics of daddys and their daughters going to this dance. This year, I was on top of it and got the girls tickets for Valentine's Day. They have talked about little else since then! Part of the experience was that my mom and I took them shopping to pick out their dresses. You might find this hard to believe...or child abuse....but my girls have NEVER been shopping! I mean, they have walked in the mall before...a couple of times...but to be honest, I didn't feel rushed to let them know that they might have a say in what clothes hang in the closet :) I have been just fine without their little opinions, and they have never know the difference.
This made for the funniest shopping trip I have ever been on! They didn't even know there were fitting rooms! lol... They were literally looking around in awe of all the beautiful clothes. They must have tried on about 10 dresses each and came to their decision. The whole thing took maybe 30 minutes :) I loved seeing what they chose.
We then rode the carousel, ate lunch and headed home :)
This is what I've heard this entire week, "I can't believe daddy asked us on a date!" "I can't wait to dance with daddy!", etc, etc...
We headed over to our friend Sara's house to get ready together. There were curling irons, makeup, lipgloss and lots of sassy!
The corsages were a big hit! I had the same woman who makes our big girl corsages make them and she did not disappoint!!
Three precious treasures...with their daddies who certainly treasure them!
