Be Beautiful Be Yourself

A couple of years ago the Global Down Syndrome Foundation, based in Denver, expanded their Be Beautiful Be Yourself Gala Fashion show to Washington DC.

This gala is a fundraiser benefiting the Linda Crnic Institute for Down Syndrome (the first academic home for Down syndrome research in the US.)

An audition was held last month for the DC gala. While we aren't exactly close to DC (it's about an 8 hr drive for us) I've been hoping to get Kayla involved in this gala; and my mom lives just outside of DC. So I took the kids for a very quick weekend trip to DC so Kayla could audition.

Waiting for the audition to start:


For never having done this before, having no idea what to expect (or what was expected of her), and getting the instructions right before auditioning...I think she did pretty well!


and she had fun, too! IMG_7851

We won't find out if she's in the gala until later this month. Either way, it was a fun time and I'm glad I made the trip up there for her to audition.

How can she not win? She is so gorgeous inside and out. I am glad you had a nice weekend. I bet your mom was glad to see Kayla (and you of course!)
