My niece Rose lives in a little town at the very top of the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland. The town has a River Festival each year. Rose was crowned Little Miss Riverfest this year. [I think] It was her third year competing in the contest. Be sure to watch the entire video... the end will make you cry.
Rose is the sweetest and brightest girl EVER! A wonderful daughter and a helpful niece/cousin to my two girls. My girls LOVE her so much! A couple weeks ago, we took Rose school clothes shopping at the King of Prussia Mall. It was so much fun for me! While shopping, she picked out the dress that she wore for the Riverfest contest. She tried on around 20 dresses in Nordstroms. She had such a hard time making up her mind that she tried on her top 5 AGAIN for Sydney & Sophia which cracked me up! (that's how sweet she... she involved her 2 & 3 year old cousins in her final decision!!). The dress she chose was perfectly girly, fun, colorful and a great choice for the Riverfest contest.
This past Saturday, we drove down to Maryland to see her in the parade. We had a wonderful day with my sister's family and some of their close friends. Rose was the star of the day.
Below is the video that Rose's father [my brother-in-law, Nathan] took the night of the competition. I edited the video and added a few photos at the end of Rose in the parade.
On the audio at the end of the video, you will hear Lacie, Rose's best friend, saying "I told you she was going to cry". Lacie is also seen hugging Rose at the end of the video :). Sooo cute!
We love you Rose!
