When your graduating senior chooses to forgo her senior prom you still want to be sure she has a memorable evening to commemorate this very special occasion. In two past years K has attended the Best Buddies dance but she didn't go this year. Only once in all four high school years did she attend homecoming, T went with her. However when it came to her senior prom we were hoping she would go. When she told us she wanted to buy a prom dress and NOT go to prom, that didn't surprise us. We told her we would buy her a prom dress and we would celebrate as a family with dinner out at a nice restaurant while Grammy & Grampy were here for graduations. That seemed to please her.
Prom or not every girl needs a pretty corsage for her special evening out.
A couple of dapper looking dudes.
For those of you who don't know K allow me to explain.
1. K doesn't like to have her photo taken.
2. K doesn't smile all that often.
I hope that clarifies why we needed so many photos and why I'm sharing so many here.
SURPRISE WE RENTED A LIMO!!!!
At this point I may need to remind you this celebration was mainly about K - but it sure looks like Grampy & S were enjoying themselves in the limo.
Cheers with littlest sister....
... and Gram & Gramp.
Grampy had fun with all the buttons..
Each of the boys had their turn sitting with the grandparents for a photo.
Mama and her girlies.
We arrived at Bern's Steak House - R and Gram look so cute in this great big chair in the waiting area.
Our private dining room - such a cool experience. Our waiter was great. He told us this room was popular with the secret service when past presidents have dined there because there are two entrances/exits to the room. Cool. We also toured the huge kitchen, the wine cellar and finished the evening with dessert in the Harry Waugh Dessert Room. I now understand why people say they sometimes go just for dessert. Impressive.
R is going to eat her veggies.
We love you K - we enjoyed spending this special evening with you.
