A few weeks ago, we were asked if our child wanted to be a part of a baby fashion show. This fashion show was to be held in conjunction with i play’s grand opening of their store in Asheville. I checked with the husband, but knew he’d be all for it too – even if it was the afternoon of our wedding anniversary. Honestly, how else would we want to spend our anniversary?
It’s no secret that I LOVE i play and Green Sprouts products. We have a lot of feeding items and clothes from the company. And I’ve been anxious to go by the store, so I knew this was going to be a fun opportunity.
I was told late last week that Lucas would be modeling active wear. (I needed to make sure he had appropriate shoes.) We weren’t quite sure how he’d behave on Saturday afternoon, so we were hoping for a long-ish nap and really just hoping for the best. (By the way, I had to wake him up, so he could eat lunch before we left. He was determined to take a longer-than-normal nap!)
We arrived at 1:30, and started dressing him in his active wear. The track pants were KILLING ME. Oh the cuteness. And the visor? To die for….if you can get your kid to wear a hat. He wore it for a few minutes, before throwing it to the floor.
He did surprisingly well “backstage.” He had plenty of kids to watch. When it came time to walk him out, I had discovered the Annie’s cheddar bunnies. It was the only way I was going to get him to wear the visor.
Lucas was lucky enough to have a second look, so we went backstage to change out of the track jacket and try on the insulated jacket (complete with mittens – and the clips to hold the mittens on.) He went nuts when I pulled the hood of the coat up, so I took that off him and gave him a cheddar bunny. He was better.
And when he realized that the mittens were dangling? He was all about shaking those around, which came in handy as we showed them to his audience.
True to form, Lucas was not shy and talked a little while his clothes were being talked about. He’s quite the entertainer.
Following the fashion show, we hung around for a few minutes so I could browse everything they have. I ended up buying a pack of bibs (not those exact bibs, but similar) and a bento lunch box. (We bought the monkey one….obviously.)
Everything was so cute, and I’m in love with the little back packs. Pretty sure I’ll be buying the monkey one in the near future.
This post is completely mine. I was not asked to blog about i play. This was a fun experience I wanted to share. We did get to keep the clothes our baby modeled, but we were not paid or compensated in any other way.
