The fairy princess wore Chucks

The Denver Zoo threw its annual "ZOOmily" fundraising event this evening. Children were encouraged to dress up as their favorite storybook character. The Pea went as a reluctant princess in a poofy tulle skirt, man-eater tank top, and her first pair of Chucks.

You say you want a close-up of those Converse? Butterflies on the loose!

The zoo offered lots of activities for the wee ones including meeting several of the animals. For a kid without pets, this dog was a real treat. The Pea was a little unsure and maintained a safe distance.

The carousel and tiny train were free for the evening.

By the end of the evening, the fancy hairbobs had fallen out and the tulle skirt was in Mama's handbag. The Pea had been stalking Mr. Froggles for hours and finally worked up the courage to give him a hug. She talked about that furry amphibian the entire ride home.

When you're done getting her dressed do you ever scream because she's so cute? I would.

so cute! *love* the butterfly chucks!
but the sentence, "by the end of the evening, the fancy hairbobs had fallen out and the tulle skirt was...." sounds like one of my weekend nights at college, oh so long ago. :)

Darling! Those days will fly by so fast! So, out of all of the animals at the zoo, her favorite was the big green furry amphibian?

P.S. Still anxiously awaiting news of your house hunting!

How do you stand it? The cuteness is so intense. Love that sweet look on her face as she's holding her princess wand. :-)

She looks soooo cute.

Don't blame her for being careful of the dog after Skylar's little dash at her. Sometimes I just want to throttle him...

I don't know which I love better, delicious Pea in fancy tulle skirt or delicious Pea sans fancy tulle skirt. Either way, the Chucks rule and The Pea is perfect!
