Braxton Moore was smiling from ear to ear, as he and his dad, Jason, played a Connect Four board game. The same was true with MaKenna Hammes, who hugged and held on to her dad, Adam, while they colored and played board games.

Ryan Damlo even donned a tiara while playing a princess game with his daughter Kylie, who wore a pink T-shirt that read, "Daddy's Girl." 


Madison Shrode's dad suddenly got ill the night before, so her grandpa, Wes Tessman, drove three hours to be there for his granddaughter. "We've been having fun. I'm glad I could be here," said Grandpa Wes. Madison Shrode smiled and hugged her grandpa with approval.

WDC Elementary teachers Jeff Mehl, Keith Ferris and Howie Kangas also filled in as mentors for several of our kids for the event, too.

WDC extends a huge thank you to all the dads, grandpas, uncles and teachers who attended this special event. The Kindergarten classes hold a similar event in the spring for moms called “Muffins with Mom” on Friday, May 11.
