Nolan and Alex are working. Alex is busy trying to get caught up, and ahead, with school work. Stacia and Alex have work samples due on Monday, the 15th. All of Alex's work and grades for the year are due May 1st.
Us gals started the week off with a breakfast meeting at Sophia's. Arielle and Stacia are going to have a table at the upcoming Bella sale to highlight Monat and Alaskan Happy Hats. They met to discuss their table and shop for supplies. Krista, Benny and I joined them.

We checked out a couple of thrift stores.
Krista and Stacia needed to duck out to get on with the 2nd part of their day....Arielle, Benny, and I made a quick run to the library.
It was snowing all day - but the youth had plans. They decided to do a variety of local activities this year, rather than a youth winter conference. Today, they climbed to the top of Bodenburg Butte - in a snow storm. It was a fine and pleasant misery.
The group at the top - they are NOT on the edge....

They SLID down the Butte and it made for a much quicker descent than the ascent. Note the depth of the snow on the posts. They are sitting on ice-encrusted steps.
Success! Back at the trail-head
They showed up at our house for hot chocolate, showers, and to change into wedding attire. All that in an hour - quite impressive.
|Quite the change in an hour!|
The reception was in a beautifully decorated, historic train depot. We love this couple and are honored to be a part of their story - we enjoyed pre-marital counseling with them.
I think we cleaned up well. None of us had worn dress up clothes since moving to Alaska. ::snort::

It was a great first day of spring break filled with family time, youth adventures, a romantic wedding, table community, and a fun reception to top it all off.
