April and early May were so hectic for our family. Several times we had to drive to Anchorage. In fact, several trips we made up and back in the same day. That's a 2 1/2 - 3 hour trip each direction! And while I don't always love the trip, especially under time constraints, there isn't anything that could have stopped me from going for all of the special occasions that we went for.
One such occasion was to see Amber dance. She was a part of New Dances ( which in my language means a 'bit' different) at the college. She did a fabulous job, looked so beautiful and we were all incredibly proud of her.
Barry's girlfriend, Anastasia was also a dancer that night which my girls were also excited about. They really enjoy her and think she is so beautiful!
After the performance the whole group of us (Grandpa and GiGi drove up to Anchorage too) went out to eat.
We were able to finally celebrate Scott's birthday and we all had a fun and silly evening. I actually think he was a little embarrassed. :)
As you can tell from the pictures, it was well worth the trip!
