fancy nancy

as one of their valentines this year, summer and afton (and mom and dad) received tickets to go see the evergreen city ballet perform fancy nancy's bonjour butterfly

i've been looking for a live performance to take my little pretties to for awhile now, and this show fit the bill perfectly:  the girls would get to see ballerinas dance live on stage (and then meet them up close and personal after the show), they would get to dress up and parade around ala fancy nancy (and what little girl doesn't love to do that?), the ballet is based on a story that they already know and enjoy, AND they would get to meet the illustrator!

first, the girls got to pick out their own outfits (their fanciest ensembles!), jewelry (the more the better!) and hair accessories (big and pink!)

then, when we arrived at the theater, they got to meet robin preiss glasser, illustrator of the beloved Fancy Nancy book series (and former professional ballerina), and have their very own book signed by her.

and finally, after enjoying a simply delightful performance (afton especially loved all the clapping), we took the ladies out for "parfaits" at "la pierre froide."

definitely fancy nancy approved.

I loooove Fancy Nancy (almost as much as I love Eloise). What a lovely excursion!
