A day in the life of a 'Little Queen' on parade day, has just begun. This was Paige's first experience walking in a procession as Petaluma Holy Ghost Portuguese Society's 'little queen'. She did better than expected.
Let's just say, she took on her new role seriously. Queen wave and all.
well, I knew something was bound to happen, and it did. But we all laugh about it now. After the procession, back at the hall, as tradition goes, the Senior Queen releases a white dove.
She released it and it decided to do a dive bomb move.
Heading straight for.........
Where it perched until someone grabbed a hold of it.
But in queen like fashion, Paige held her composure, for the most part. I now know for certain, animals really respond well and can sense when there's an extreme animal lover in the crowd.
All was better after some food and a little Barbie playtime:)
