SAHD Life: My First Daddy-Daughter Dance Sweetheart Ball

The YMCA Adventure Guides Father-Daughter Sweetheart Ball was not on my radar until a good friend of mine told me how he takes his daughters each year. I thought, "Cool! You and your girls are really excited about this thing, huh?" When my wife started getting emails about the event, there was no controlling her excitement. She was even talking about renting a car for the night!

Yeah...

In case you didn't know (like me), a dadddy-daughter dance allows dad an opportunity to set an example and standard for how his daughter should be treated on a date. It is also an opportunity for dad to build that special bond with his daughter and make special memories.

Okay, based on the description above, I tossed the whole daddy-daughter dance thing out the window because my daughter and dating don't even go together in a sentence. And I can build that special bond with my daughter at the creek - FISHING!

But I thought about the whole thing (I do a lot of thinking) and with my "try-almost-anything-once" attitude, I went all in.

That's right! I went to my first daddy-daughter dance AND I LOVED IT!

Road Trip Edmond Oklahoma to Branson Missouri


View Larger Map

 

On the road to Branson, Missouri this time to visit Bass Pro Shops' Big Cedar Lodge. It should be about five hours to get there. Hoping for some great traveling weather and road conditions.

This is one of those deals where they are going to sell us a timeshare. So, we have to go to one of the "presentations" while we're there. Since Big Cedar Lodge sits on Table Rock Lake, I'm looking forward to some good fishing. Maybe I can catch a few bass!
