Uniqueley Me

We thought we were all finished with Brookie as the National American Miss National Princess Queen but as the national office told us, "Once your a national winner, you will never really be finished."

The girl scouts of America put on a program called Uniqueley Me a few weekends ago. They contacted the NAM office and requested that Brooke be a guest of honor. So we squeezed it into our weekend and I am so glad we did. It was a great experience for Brookie. The other two guest of honors were Miss United States and Miss Reno/Tahoe. They took over the mall for a day and it was all about how every girl is unique and special in her own way and can accomplish anything. There were about 35 different booths and vendors set up for the girls to walk around to and learn how to do different things, try out new stuff, get lessons ect. About 1500 girls, ages 5-20 from the Reno area attended. Brooke and the two other queens were in their regular clothes and talked about the process and preparation to participate in a pageant. Then at the end of the day they "transformed" into their formal dresses and walked a runway. It was a great day and a super neat event for girls. Brooke was even on the news. I totally missed it because they came when I had gone to change Kaylee Nicole! But I did see it on the news that night and it was cute.They didn't tell us she was going to have to be prepared for an interview or to speak to the entire group or anything but Brooke obviously didn't need any prep. She did an awesome job. She's a pro!
Lot's of posing for pictures!
During her 1/2 hour lunch break we walked around to some of the different booths. Here she is learning to do the Irish river dance.
Learning the cha cha

Answereing questions from the audience...I would have been scared to death but like I said...Brookie is a pro!
