After dinner, toasts, and cake-cutting, it was time for the kids-and-parents dances.
I had decided on “My Girl” for my dad and me, after some initial confusion.
It was pretty fun, as dad sang a lot to me and twirled me around a bit.
Mr. Ladyfingers had chosen “Stand by Me” for him and his mom.
I’m pretty sure she cried at least a couple of times.
