One of the many things I love about the Rota base is all of the activities they have for families. As a military base they are well aware of the issues that effect military families...separation is one of them.
This is a shore duty for a lot of the sailors here, and a time where family time is of utmost importance because sea duty, when the active duty member will likely have to deploy and be away for long periods of time, is right around the corner...
So, it is with that in mind, that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the idea of the annual Cinderella Ball hosted by the base which allows a night for daughters to get all dressed up and have a fairy tale night with their dad.
My daughters especially look forward to this night! And I know that in the coming years, when Johann's job takes him out to sea, the girls will have these amazing memories that we have made together here in Spain...
Here are some pictures of this year's ball!
At the house, getting ready..
And at the ball!!!
Complete with a horse carriage ride, cupcakes, photo ops, and R&R dancing w/ Daddy!!!
