The long-anticipated DANCE

So I promised and here it is weeks later and I'm finally gonna make good on that promise. The twins and Mr. Smartypants had a fabulous time at the dance. They got their picture made, danced a few then split and got ice cream with a couple of their BFFs. All in all it was a great evening. It totally served the purpose it was supposed to serve. The FLW Chaplain's office sponsors this dance yearly to allow Dads a chance to show their daughters how a real date should act. It also allows for father-daughter bonding time. Now, our kids aren't old enough to even know what dating is and you can only really "bond" so much with a three year old at a dance where balloons are present. But it is sooo important for Mr. Smartypants and I that we do things like this with our kids. As our kids get older, they will have evidence of their dad taking time to dress up and do something FOR THEM. He gains little out of this except time with his babies, and more reasons to be loved and adored by them. I am super proud to have a husband who finds these things important above all other things and super proud to be part of an Army and an Army Post that sees the importance in family.
Enough with the blubbering...on with the pictures. That's what you've all been waiting on anyway.

Itchy and Scratchy's BFFs are in the pictures too with their dads. Then the three dads took their dates to Dairy Queen for icecream.
