We have an appointment on Wednesday (our second meeting there) to reserve....
dun, dun, dun....
We were looking forward to using the Kapowsin Grange when it looked like this:
But they have extensively remodeled since the pictures I found on the internet were taken - which I think was just about a year ago!
And now it is no longer "Kapowsin Grange," it's "Kapowsin Event Center."
Here are some newer pictures of the outside:
It's really nice. Did you see the nice grill and outdoor area just above? They completely re-did the inside too. With marble countertops and custom woodworking! It's really nice.
We're only reserving half of it though... not expecting too big of a crowd. Still, I believe Northwest Roads will be playing. So we will have to make sure they have some room, along with the food and people who are there!
Since 11/11 is a national holiday, the courthouse will be closed, so we can't do the "official business" there. So we broke down and got someone to officiate the ceremony: Karen Kroha, the owner of 'tiques & t'ings inside of Ubiquitous Journey (one of the most awesome stores within a 50-mile radius).
I think we've got the times down too. We were thinking of signing the papers at the courthouse at 11:11, but since that's not an option, we've decided for our potluck to start at 11:11, "ceremony" (or lack of one! :P) at 1:11. And then more food maybe. :)
Guess we should probably apply to apply for the wedding license! (Or whatever silly thing that is you're supposed to do.)
Progress still needs to be made on my "dress," but it shouldn't be too hard.
Treavor already has what he will wear picked out.
It occurred to me today that I have no idea what the kids should wear. Just normal clothes? Hmm, we'll have to talk about that one.
And another BIG THANK YOU! We received a couple more donations! :)
It's almost time to figure out decorations! And get hair cut! :)
