Daddy Daughter Date

On Friday, Mommy subbed at the high school, and Daddy stayed home to have a daddy-daughter day with Summer!  They packed a ton of stuff in, and got to do a lot of Summer's favorite things.  They went to the open gym at the community center, went to Target, went to the Burnsville Mall playplace, and went out to lunch!  It is so cute to watch Daddy and Summer together.  In the last few weeks, they have really been bonding in a special way.  Daddy is definitely a "fun" Daddy and there are always lots of giggles!  One of my favorite things in the whole world is watching Summer run up to Daddy and give him a big hug around his legs!  They have a special Daddy-Daughter cuddle moment every evening after bath time, with Summer snuggled up close to Daddy all wrapped up in her towel.  It is so cute it makes me melt :).  Paul is SUCH a good Daddy to Summer.  Just watching him with her makes me love him even more than I already do!!!!  Here are a few pictures and video clips that Paul took on their date.

Breakfast...Daddy sent this picture to Mommy when she was subbing.  Notice how nicely daddy did Summer's hair!  He told me the night before that he wasn't sure how that part (doing her hair) of their date would go.....but he did great!

Playing at the open gym...randomly met up with a friend from church!

Summer LOVES climbing the ramps

Deciding what to order for lunch :)

Drinking out of a straw---so fun!

Enjoying her date with Daddy!

Playing on the "floor" at the Mall: there is a spot where advertisements and other fun things are projected from the ceiling to a spot on the floor.  Summer loves this part of the mall!

Playing at the Community Center Toddler Open Gym

Kicking a soccer ball: She loves kicking balls all over the gym, and was doing so quite a bit, but Paul just caught the tail end on video :)

In case you have never been to a toddler open gym, this clip gives a feel for it!  At the beginning Summer RUNS all over kicking the balls and playing hard.  By the end she gets a lot of her energy worn off and walks around people watching!

What a fun video! I really enjoyed seeing the fun daddy/daughter day. You have so many wonderful opportunities of things to do in Apple Valley in the winter! Paul, good job with the ponytail and headband. :) I'm so glad you got to enjoy such a special day with Summer.
