Emery and I were supposed to have our very first Daddy-Daughter Dance this year! It was sponsored by her Girl Scouts and was scheduled to be at school. Since everything is closed up, the leaders made it a virtual experience. Emery was super excited for the dance so she prepped all week. Julie helped her buy a new dress and get decorations to make the basement look great!
Before the party started, Chef Julie and Sous Chef Carter provided a wonderful 3-course meal (menu created by Emery) for us to enjoy, at our special table for two. We started with carrots, then had cheese pizza and chicken meatballs, followed by a healthy banana split. After dinner was complete, a bunch of dads and their daughters all joined the virtual dance via Zoom. The kids were allowed to put in special music requests, and all of the Patterson teachers joined the call as a surprise. The teachers announced each song one by one! We hooked the live video stream to the stereo and projector and got c-r-a-z-y. Emery’s first dance was a success and she had the time of her life!
