Well, if we're not feeling patriotic this Fourth of July something is wrong with us.
Sam and I are in WASHINGTON D.C.!
We're at a church business administrator's conference... and we had thought it was a weird time to have a conference (on and around July 4th)... but we're happy to be here (ALTHOUGH IT MEANT NOT ATTENDING A FAMILY REUNION IN MINNESOTA!!).
We're staying in the Gaylord National... which is on the Potomac...
Tonight we're taking a bus tour of the capitol. That's after we have a big buffet dinner here.
As the spouse of a conference member I have meetings I can go to during the day - or not go to.
It's a rough life, but somebody has to live it.
Oh, earlier this week I got a package from Carla, Kenzie and Dylan!
Here Caroline and I are showing you the goodies I got.
And notice the gum in the foreground. That was for our flight up here!
Oh, and Carla sent a wonderful card, too.
Well, it was all wonderful... and UPS delivered it right when the Huffmans came for supper!!
Speaking of the Huffmans, here I am with little Anna that very night...
I repeat: It's a rough life, but someone has to live it.
(I was glad to volunteer.)
