Date Night

Kenny invited Avery to go with him to the dinner theater at Faulkner University last night. Avery looked forward to her Date with Daddy, and was ecstatic when the night finally arrived! She wore a fancy dress and got all pretty for her Daddy. They saw "Thoroughly Modern Millie" which was comprised of many ACA students alongside Faulkner students.

The part that I think was most interesting was hearing about her inquiries during the show. Kenny said she was more interested in learning about the props and why you couldn't see the stage hands really well. He said one conversation went like this,

"Where did that girl come from Daddy?"

"The house."

"Well, why aren't there bedrooms in the house?"

One thing she told me when she got home was, "there was a man dressed in all black, way up high, and he was not going to come down until the whole show was over."

The production started late because it was a full house, and was going to run well past 10:00, so Daddy brought Avery home during intermission.

Avery informed me, "When I get bigger like all the older people, I can stay until the whole thing is over."

They had a fun time building new memories. Kenny says he hopes to make date night a tradition with his little gal. I know she will remember their special times together for years to come.

Aw, that's cute! I remember having date night with my dad when I was younger! If you're looking to make date night a tradition, I think you'd like springpad's date night planner - it's a great way to plan dates of all kinds!
