A Daddy-Daughter Date

This year Aspen entered a drawing contest to win tickets to Molly Mouse. Molly Mouse is a ballet put on by the Children's Ballet Theater. Aspen colored her picture for days and did the best that she could. She was convinced she was going to win the tickets and kept asking us if we thought she would win too. Both Zach and I told her that if we were the ones judging, we would totally pick hers but we didn't want to set her up for rejection either. So she entered her picture and we waited to see what would happen. Well she did end up winning the tickets for her age group and she was so excited. Zach decided that he wanted to make that day especially "special" for her so he decided to take her. He bought her a corsage and even drove around the block before ringing the doorbell to pick her up for their date. He took her to dinner and requested a special table by the fireplace. Aspen talked about their date for many days afterward and was sad when her corsage had to be thrown away. Lucky for her, it came with a special bracelet that she can keep forever. Thank you Zach for being the "daddy" that you are. You are amazing and both Aspen and I are lucky to have you.
