I recently was a part of the Dynamic Kids Expo! There was a lot of fun,games,and of course, kids! I was one of the featured Dynamic Kids at the expo. This expo also benefited children's healthcare of Atlanta. :) I also had a fashion show showcasing my items at the expo! I also had the pleasure of meeting the lovely Christine Pullara, host of Atlanta and Company (I'm a big fan of Atl & Co. :D). She was there to host the event.
Here are some pictures from the event:
