Very Vivian - Princess Party

A couple of weeks ago Vivian had a very important date planned - a tea party with Cinderella and Snow White.

Marcanda Gifts, Tea Room and Boutique in Wyoming was having a princess party, so of course we had to go.  It was a really nice event - nothing overly fancy or planned, just a couple of hours with yummy snacks, nail painting, story telling, and fun in princess dresses.

It was pretty adorable.  They staff were really great with all the kids.  They made a big deal out of everyone's dresses and were calling everyone Princess.

She LOVED having her nails painted.  Not even a brownie and ice cream in a tea cup could distract her from admiring them.

She wasn't super keen on hanging out with Cinderella - I think she was thrown by the unlicensed dress.

But she ran up to Snow White and jumped into her arms.

Luckily I got her in my arms too.

The kids all seemed to really enjoy themselves.  It was much nicer once we got outside though - the space inside was a bit cramped and crowded.

You can see Vivian right up front - somehow she and her buddy Ellyot managed to score front-row seats for the group picture.  Ellyot was hilarious - she had this whole Cyndi Lauper princess look going on.

Marcanda is hosting another larger princess event in August as a fundraiser for a local family.  Their little girl needs a heart and double-lung transplant and the mother has run out of compassionate leave and has been forced back to work, so they're hoping to raise some funds to help them.  That event is supposed to be much larger, with 10 or more princesses attending, so it should be a great event.  You can find more information on the Facebook event here.
