Here are pictures from the Grand March taken for the St. Cloud Times :)
The whole day was so much fun! I made dough for (German) pancakes before I went to Laura's house where we got ready together. I think I arrived at around 1pm and I took a shower right away :D Since our water heater was broken I wasn't able to take a shower on Friday! After that we both started to do our hair - Laura had already started to curl here hair when I came and I twisted my hair (strand by strand) and used bobby pins to put them up. That way my hair got even more curly :) I sprayed them again with water and put a towel on my head so that I won't drip on the floor.
After that I put lotion all over and started my makeup.
We were ready to go taking pictures at 4pm but we visit Laura's neighbor very quick to show her our dresses.
|Here we are with her neighbor :)|
Because it was raining a little Steph had the idea to go to the library instead of Munsinger Gardens. The library has huge windows - we would get a lot of light - so that's why we went there. Steph wanted to take our pictures but Obadiah started crying while she was getting my flower (corsages) so she stayed home. Laura's mom had a lot of funny ideas for the pictures:
- 'Normal' ones in the entry way where they have big blue peaces of glass with very pretty pictures on them (they kind of matched our dresses)
- in the glass elevator
- us sitting at the desk, working with the computers and having big headphones on
- sitting in the reading corner on very comfy couches, legs on the table and reading books that - again - were matching our dress color
- in a corner between the glass front and a bronze looking wall, me leaning at the glass and Laura at the wall
- walking down the stairs
|Normal in front of the glass things|
|And a little further out so you can see the dresses better|
|"Working" with computer|
|It was funny :)|
|And again with the books|
|Leaning at the window and wall|
|A little closer|
|Her dress is sooo puffy :) She said it was very hard to drive!|
There we met all the other people already waiting in line.

So then about 5 minutes later we went back to Laura's house changed out of our dresses and into comfy stuff to make the pancakes so that out dresses don't get ruined!
|Laura's room - just a little chaos after our 'attack' :D|
Because I love sweet stuff pancakes is basically the only thing that I ever cook when I'm hungry so I memorized the recipe and prepared the dough before I left to Laura's house, but I forgot it at home so we stopped by to pick it up :) Our German pancakes are a lot thinner than American ones and in general look more like crêpes. Here is a picture that I found online that looks pretty close, we didn't take any :D
After that we got ready again and Laura's mom took us to the dance.

It was so hot in there that my lens was all foggy - that's why I didn't take a whole bunch of pictures...
It was sooo much fun getting ready with Laura! We listened to 'Mamma Mia' almost the whole time, so that's why I picked Dancing Queen as a title :)
