it was a girl's day

What a great day we had Tuesday in LR when we took Alex to her 4H Teen Star Banquet and Ambassador interview. The interview did not take nearly as long as we thought, so we had time to go hang out with Brooke & Rob (so maybe it wasn't an exclusive girl's day!)

We met them at Macaroni Grill for some lunch and went to their house for a little while to see all the work they had put in remodel and update. I'm very proud of them for working so hard to get everything just the way they wanted.

They have listed it for sale, you can see it here. If you know anyone looking for a cute house in a great location in LR, have them check it out!

We snapped some photos in the backyard.
Mostly silly photos mind you!Here is Alex & Brooke posing as garden gnomes.
Why?
I have no clue, but I love the looks on their faces! What a great looking couple they are.
If they sell their house, they plan to move back to Florida.
I won't lie, I am very sad about that decision, but I wish them all the best in the world and if that makes them happy, then it makes me happy for them.
These are their "babies"
Roxy.
and Dixon.
Fast forward to the evening and Alex's banquet.
This is Brooke sporting her "James" nametag to get into the banquet.
I had originally registered James to come, but he was unable so Brooke came instead.
The 4H Vines Center in Ferndae is such a nice facility.
We had dinner in the dining hall then moved over to the auditorium for the awards portion.
Here is Alex receiving her Teen Star award from Dr. Darlene Millard,
Assistant Director for Youth Development.

Alex & Nancy - we owe her all the credit for helping Alex achieve this honor.
She is truly the best 4H leader.We were completely worn out after driving home after the banquet and having to get up for work the next day, but I assure you it was worth every minute.
We found out on Thursday that Alex was indeed named 4H Ambassador!
Very exciting. She had to give a speech and answer several questions from a panel of judges. In order to make the cut, she had to score at least a 90 out of 100 on the scoresheet.
