Several weeks ago I saw a post advertising a Daddy Daughter Date at Chik-Fil-A on Facebook. (See? FB is not a COMPLETE waste of time... :) I immediately knew it looked like something that Lainey and Jed would love to do. Admittedly, I think I was the most excited one out of all of us about the event, but only because of my sentimental nature. I mean, c'mon. Little girls, their sweet daddies, dressing up... does it get any cuter than that?!?
The afternoon before their big date, we spent some time primping and getting ready. The little girls were encouraged to dress up as princesses so dress up we did!
We met Jed after work and I dropped Lainey off on her first real date. Her handsome guy even had a flower for her. What a gentleman! :)
I so, so, SO badly wanted to watch the whole evening unfold. It had to be the absolute most precious thing on the face of the planet. I told Jed about a thousand times to take lots of pictures. He came home with a few :)
Two of Lainey's sweet friends got to go on dates with their daddies too!
|Charlotte, Lainey and Penelope|
They even had REAL princesses there. Lainey didn't know who this one was (Merida from Brave) but maybe we will rent the movie one of these days. She was still pretty smitten with the real princess!
They are the cutest!
Lainey came home from her date BEAMING from ear to ear with a new crown in hand. She had so much to say about the night, especially that the Chik-Fil-A chicken princess was kind of scary and she was pretty excited about the ice cream too.
She insisted on wearing her new crown to bed and a glittery princess skirt. That girl!
Thankful that Lainey has a dad that LOVES her so genuinely and practically. They had a fabulous time together. And big props to Chik-Fil-A for supporting families and relationships to put on a free event like this for creating lasting memories.
