This summer has been nothing short of amazing! The girls and I have so much fun together; it's all laughs and smiles. We are in the midst of the busiest season of the year, with parades every weekend. We are having a great time during the parades. We love seeing people that we know along the route, but also really love meeting so many new people. We are becoming close with royalty from other towns, as we see them every weekend as well. It is nice gaining new friends that we would otherwise never had the chance to meet. This has been our adventure….
June 4– Princess Cassie attended the Miss Sparta Pageant. Cassie enjoyed an exciting evening of talent and performances by all of the contestants. The newly crowned Miss Sparta is Christina Weaver.
June 12— We attended the Sparta Butter Fest Parade. The parade route was crowded with people, and the weather was
absolutely beautiful. After the parade all of our families went to the fest grounds and enjoyed festival food and ice cold slushies. Next we were off to try out some of the carnival rides. Princess Cassie and I are not too fond of heights so we held hands and kept our eyes shut the entire time. Princess Ellie had a lot of fun with that, of course. It was a fun day for all of us.
June 17—Queen Alison attended the June Dairy Days at the Tomah VA Medical Hospital. Alison helped scoop ice cream with a princess from the Wa Da Shuda days royalty. Alison had a wonderful time and enjoyed visiting with all the veterans.
June 19— We attended the Cranberry Blossom Festival in Wisconsin Rapids. It was such a hot day that all three of us got matching sunburns from our dresses. Ellie has relatives who live in the area so we visited with them over lunch and they even made a sign to hold up as we passed by during the parade. After the parade we begged Mr. Carney to take us to Dairy Queen for ice cream and we won out. Only problem was Betsy (nickname for our float) took up the entire parking lot. A fun day was had by all despite the heat.
June 25— This was a very busy day. We started the morning out at the Wetherby Cranberry marsh for Blossom Days. At
Blossom Days we presented our food demonstrations, this was a test run for the real deal the Wisconsin State Fair in August. Next we were off to The Wisconsin Cranberry Discovery Center in Warrens. We used our artistic talents by doing face painting on all the kids faces. One little girl even asked if we knew Queen Elizabeth of England. She asked to have her picture taken with us and said “this was the best day of my life” and gave us each a hug. That evening we went to Oshkosh for the Miss Wisconsin Pageant. We had great seats right in front of the stage. It was a blast watching the contestant's compete in talent, swimwear, formals and answer their competition question. Miss Green Bay Area, Courtney Pelot was crowned the new 2016 Miss
Wisconsin. Cassie, Ellie and I were beyond excited the entire night and enjoyed every minute of it.
I love spending time with my two princesses and their families and I am so lucky to be able to spend my year with them! We hope you enjoyed our monthly update and we look forward to what’s ahead on our calendar.
