The evening of Saturday, Feb 23 was a happy one! 🙂 As a volunteer on behalf of The Framing Nook, I was able to attend Shalom Counseling Center’s Daddy/Daughter event. Preparations started the day before with set up and decorations at the Golden Circle. On the day of, the weather was sunny and warm for a mid-winter Albertan day – perfect for such an event! It was so nice to see little girls all dressed up in their finest apparel holding their Dad’s hand as they entered for an evening of fond memory making.
There was a raffle table in which I was put in charge of, guessing jars for both Dads and Daughters, scrapbook craft, games, prizes, a delicious meal catered by Remi’s and an hour of Father/Daughter dance time with a DJ that would sing along with some of the songs!
Upon entering, one Dad mentioned to me he was not interested in the dance part, but his little girl was. I suggested that when the time came, he just stand up by her and hop/sway a bit and give her a twirl. Well, later on while the little girl was busy twirling her fancy dress ’round n ’round, her Dad stood up, did as suggested and the little girl squealed with delight and the Dad picked her up in his arms and gave her a kiss and she immediately rewarded him with a big hug <3
A successful fond memory was made for both!
