The week of the dance was the week that RSV hit our house. I was hoping that Adalyn was on the mend by that Saturday because she was much less congested. After I got her dressed and we were taking pictures, she just kept crying and pulling on her ear. (The day before Cayden had been diagnosed with an ear infection so that got me worrying.) Thankfully one call to her doctor and we got an antibiotic called in for her. Jonathan and Adalyn headed to the dance while I took care of the doctor and pharmacy calls.
Before they left, I got a bunch of almost-crying/barely-smiling pictures. She just was not herself. Jonathan gave Adalyn and me pearl necklaces and bracelets last Valentine's Day, so this was the perfect time for her to wear her set. She was so excited to wear them.
She just seems so old wearing her big girl jewelry. These pictures melt my heart.
This was her dress from Easter last year. I was so excited that it still fit her! Adorable.
I love those curls!
The dance was in a banquet hall barn on the property of the horse race track and was catered by Chick-fil-a. The pictures that Jonathan sent me from his phone look like the place was decorated to the nines. He said Adalyn loved the chandelier. All of the glam made it so exciting for all the little girls. I asked Jonathan to take lots of pictures during the night since I couldn't be there to witness it. He told me that he wasn't going to be taking pictures all night because he wanted to just enjoy it. Well, he ended up texting me tons pictures. He said that all of the moms must have had strict orders for the dads to take pictures because he said everyone was doing the same thing he was doing. hehe.
Eating her dessert. Jonathan said he could tell she didn't feel good when she only ate one bite of her cookie. Poor thing!
They had tiaras for each of the little girls and a professional photographer for pictures. Here is the picture that they got. I think Adalyn's face is awesome!
She even kept her crown on with her pjs.
I love that even though she wasn't feeling the best, she obviously had a great time and it has stuck with her in her little memory. This will definitely be a yearly tradition. I love the way Jonathan and Adalyn love each other!
