Do Princesses Wear Hiking Boots?

Photobucket

My mom took these adorable pictures of the girls while they were at her house earlier this afternoon. These pictures reminded me of the book, "Do Princesses Wear Hiking Boots?" that my mom gave Jaidyn when she was a year old. The author was inspired to write this book when her own daughter, sporting a tiara and coveralls, asked if princesses wear hiking boots. This is a cute little book for any little girl who has ever asked a question about themselves. Oh, and I like it because it isn't like the perfect Disney Princess stories that my girls so often absorb themselves with. It lets all little girls know that no matter what they like to do, how they look, or what they wear, they are all princesses on the inside. And I can tell you that our two little princesses definitely wear hiking boots. While they do love to play dress-up in the fufu dresses and jewelry, they spend most of their time finding ways play outside in the dirt. :)

The photos are beautiful, and I absolutely love the Princess/Hiking Boots books. I have a 2-year-old daughter and it is so refreshing when compared to the Disney princesses, like you said. Thanks for visiting me today, too!

Ah, we miss those little princesses. Haven was missing them the other night and got REALLY sad telling Hunter and I that we bought the wrong house because she wants to live by Jaidyn and Addy! (I think we have a drama queen)
