MoPro 2018

What's not to love about Mormon Prom?!!!  A gorgeous venue, an amazing dinner and dessert, decorated to the hilt, unlimited Italian sodas, surrounded by uplifting dancing and music...and did I say FREE!!  Isn't that amazing!!  I'm so grateful that the Yakima and Selah stake years ago decided to take on this beast.  We rotate doing the dinner and decorating and then the other stake does the Italian sodas.  This year it was out turn to "host" - we actually have it at the same location every year and the Tree family is just so generous to share it.  The following day the regional single adults host a similar daylong activity and so we are able to double dip in the rentals of the tent, chairs, and tables.

Anyway, Tyler's lovely date was from Sunnyside.  She is not a member of our church but he did meet her through some mutual friends at a church activity.  Molly seemed super sweet and the two had a great time together all night!

Tyler and Alex doubled with their dates

We were some of the lucky ones that got to chaperone.  I felt extra blessed because really all I did was eat a wonderful dinner, dance, and then help clean up.

First time feeling like celebrities

We had around 200 kids attend the evening!

Dinner was smoked tri-tip steak or chicken, rolls, caesar salad, and baked potatoes with toppings.  They also had a commercial soft serve ice cream machine with lots of toppings that the kids enjoyed all night long.

The dance was held behind the pool on the tennis court.

I feel so blessed to live in an area that puts on these extra special occasions for our teenagers!!
