Part Two

I liked that they made the kids match, even though they were not on together.

The catwalk!  There were about 200 people attending the show, it was a huge crowd.  They brought in more chairs and then people started standing in the back.  There was also a balcony!

I did not get everyone, I even nearly missed Chan because I was too busy watching her to snap a photo!

Jake was SO jealous.

I got several of Jake because he was helping Jersey get to the end and back.  She had to stop and wave and flash 'love yous' to her mama.  So he would dance when she stopped walking.  It was so cute, everyone cheered and yelled and clapped.

They had Jake go out one more time to escort this model

At the end, they had a final walk-through for everyone who heard about it!  This was not part of the original rehearsal, so at least 1/3 of the models went offstage before it happened, but it turned out just fine.  The whole thing was a lot of fun.

Their design team!

This is Beth, who cut Brit's hair.

On the way home, we stopped at Waffle House and had dinner, that was so much fun!  The guy who took care of us was great, so kind.  It was a perfect day, I was glad the kids had such a positive experience and were able to be a part of something ADULTS were doing that was so much fun and used such creativity.  So often all the paths look like they end in a box, it's nice to dabble in one with less boundaries.

So, thanks to everyone at Aveda!  Erin and John and Carly in particular for being so AWESOME!  :)
