Well, we are home and ready to settle back in!
The trip was fabulous and full of lots of firsts! I DEALT POKER! You read that correctly I was a dealer in the poker tournament. It was just like in the movies. Players all wore hats, drank a lot of alcohol in a smokey room. I was so afraid I was going to mess up. I DIDN'T! It was so fun, I loved it.
The rest of the events were fun as well, we raised $78,000.00 for the scholarship foundation. YEAAAAA! We grooved to the 70's as the theme for the convention. We ate "virgin" psychedelic brownies (made with parsley instead of a certain type of grass); tang cupcakes(Tang was a 70's thing) along with Hamburger Helper (it wasn't actual HH, but it was supposed to be) paninis covered in powdered sugar. I didn't get that one so I asked.... cocaine. You know I missed a lot of the 70's I think!LOL
There was a lot of nice food to, but that was some of the theme food. We were all in costume and we had John Travolta. Not just in costume, but a 29 yr old kid who must have studied the routine for hours b/c he was on the floor by himself and would have given Travolta a run for his money! Olivia enjoyed the dance floor with some little friends she made, including the 13 AND 14 yr old little boys who kept asking her to dance.
WHAT IS HAPPENING AT OUR HOUSE?
The children were at the pool almost every waking moment and really enjoyed the water slide. The Marriot Shoals is an amazing facility! Absolutely beautiful!
I am ready for a little down time before Orren's surgery next week! Monday the 28th!
We are thankful tonight that Grayson Walker (my cousin) is at home and did well with his surgery this morning. Praise GOD!
