Cinderella and Miss Arkansas Events

Here it is July...and time has flown by so quickly. This month, we have had 3 opportunities to represent Arkansas Childrens Hospital. Over the holiday weekend, we stopped at a Dairy Queen in Mountain Home, Arkansas. Covering the windows were hundreds of CMN balloon stickers...Haven was so excited, she had to give an employee one of her Champion Cards.
Yesterday, in Benton, the downtown association hosted 'Cinderella in the City' in conjunction with the local theatre group's production of the musical. How fun is it to dress up like a princess, especially Cinderella??? Haven was introduced at the event, and even took a carriage ride. She loved it, despite the heat! You can see her smile above.
Today was even better!!! Childrens Miracle Network has close ties with the Miss America program, so today Haven was invited to participate in the arrival ceremony for the 2011 contestants for Miss Arkansas. Haven and Eden were entranced watching all the beautiful girls arrive. Afterwards, the top 5 fundraising contestants for CMN were recognized and had their picture taken with Haven and Kate from ACH. But, the highlight for our girl was receiving her very own crown from Miss Arkansas, Alyse Eady. Haven fell in love with Alyse, and we even had to track her down after the event so Haven could see her one more time!
