Happy Easter!

Yesterday, I attended the Gloversville Easter Egg Hunt, put on by the Mayor of Gloversville, Dayton King's wife Chanda King.  This was the first easter egg hunt of what will hopefully turn into an annual tradition.  There was such a great turnout and it was so nice to see families spending time outdoors having fun.  I was able to meet a lot of new faces and see some familiar ones. 
It really made my day when I spotted out several girls I used to teach dance to and it put a huge smile on my face when they remembered me, calling me a princess.  I loved hearing about how their still dancing and I told them to say hi to their dance teacher for me!
I had the opportunity to talk with a young woman that impressed me greatly.  She told me how much fun she was having and how much she loved Easter and spending the day with her mom.  We talked about how much she loved princesses and how she really looks up to me as her role model.  I found out that she takes part in so many events to help out her community, she was part of a group that helped fill over 1,000 eggs with candy for the event!  It was such a pleasure to meeting someone with such a huge heart for her community!

A huge thank you to Chanda King for coordinating this wonderful event and Mayor Dayton King for inviting me to participate.  I met Mayor Dayton King when I was competing in the Miss Fulton County pageant in February, he was one of the mock interview judges at the workshop.  I love how we've kept in contact ever since meeting, it meant a lot to me that he reached out to invite me and it was a pleasure to attend such a wonderful community event, I can't wait until next year!
A special shout out to Dayton and Chanda's daughter, Isabelle, such a beautiful and talented young girl.  I heard that she couldn't wait to meet me and I loved meeting her, such a sweetheart and heard she's a fantastic horseback rider!  Also to their son, Cayden, we got to talk a little bit and I have high hopes for this young boy, he wants to grow up to be a lawyer!  I wish them both the very best in their futures and I hope to be seeing more of them soon!
