night at the museum

For the past four years, I've been a part of the mamas that come together to organize, plan, and pull off Whitefield's Annual Daddy Daughter Dance.


This year we headed to The Museum at PrairieFire for a Night at the Museum. With the beautiful stained glass walls and a dinosaur in the hall, it made for a fantastic venue.

We invited everyone to dress up as historical characters and the dads really embraced it. We had Leonardo DaVinci and the Mona Lisa, the entire Flintstone family (complete with Dino), and I can't even tell you how many Abe and Mary Todd Lincolns.

Here's my Amelia Earhart and her co-pilot, Frank Hawks on their way to dinner before the dance.


Admittedly, planning the dance each year is almost as fun as throwing the party. This was my crew. We dream and plan and work all year to pull off memories for daddies and their girls on one big night. These ladies know how to party and we make a great team. Next year I might not make them wear costumes...


The night was filled with lots of dancing (including an ape and a dinosaur), daddies becoming mummies, an Egyptian dance off, streamers, and at one point all of the Abraham Lincolns doing the Chicken Dance.


But the real pay off is always watching daddies making sweet memories with their daughters. All the work leading up the the evening is worth it watching Isabelle and Jamy dance the night away, laughing and spinning on the dance floor.


Another amazing evening in the books!


Want a peek at previous years? 

There was a Hoedown complete with cowboy boots and line dancing (pre-blogging days)
There was the Sock Hop and the dance that almost didn't happen
Then the Beach Ball complete with surfboards and "Frankie and Annette"
And last year we had a Masquerade Ball that ended unexpectedly (and almost tragically)
