A night for just dad and his daughters

February 16, 2019

Joseph Thomsen of North Platte dances with 8-year-old Emma, while Ainslee, 5, waits for her turn. They were at the annual Daddy/Daughter Valentine Dinner and Dance at the North Platte Recreation Center on Friday night. Thomsen said the girls “get to be in the spotlight for one night” and it means a lot to them. They enjoyed dressing up and getting their hair done and spending time with Dad, along with running around and seeing their friends who were there. He said life gets “busy, busy” and taking time out for special events like this is important.
