Hawaiian Daddy Daughter Dance

Last Friday was the annual Daddy Daughter Dance up at the high school, and this year’s theme was Hawaiian.  Fortunately, we had a vintage Hawaiian dress for Ane to wear!

I say “vintage” because that is my dress, brought to me by my grandmother (I think) from a trip she took to Hawaii when I was Ane’s age.  It fit her perfectly, and I found the silk flower clip that I bought in Hawaii myself in 1997, and clipped it her hair for the night.  But it wasn’t just a Daddy-Daughter night.  It was also a night for good friends.

Lina went along with Ane and the Webmaster, because her dad couldn’t get off work that night.  And why should she have to miss all the fun just because her dad couldn’t go?

The Webmaster was completely into the moment.

We couldn’t find a Hawaiian shirt for him (he later claimed that it must have been because all the other dads had bought them), but he looked pretty good in a white polo, shorts, and a silk flower lei.

The Webmaster was pleased to have a second “date” for the evening, too.

And after the dance, which I heard was a lot of fun, he treated them to ice cream at Baskin Robbins.  It was a successful date, and everyone was home before 9:30 pm.

I love that the high school puts this on every year, and I love that Ane looks forward to it as a special time for her and the Webmaster.  I am also proud of her for “sharing” her Dad for the evening, too.

    You couldn’t find a Hawaiian shirt? I don’t think the Webmaster was looking that hard.
