Convention 2013

I am blessed and thankful to have been able to attend yet another enjoyable Close To My Heart Convention.  It took place in Orlando (well, technically in Buena Vista) at the Coronado Springs Resort Hotel on Disney property.  It was a blast and here are just a few highlights from our time there a month ago.

This is a view of the primary buildings on the resort as taken on the other side of the pond (close to the swimming pool area).
We can always count on some good entertainment during our Opening Session, especially when hosted by Disney.
These are the Three Amigos (a.k.a. our three Vice-Presidents).  They have become quite the actors over the years and they are always a hoot to watch.  It is during this Opening Session that new products are released and the session always ends with us getting an exclusive convention bag with a copy of the NEW Idea Book inside.
One of the fun things about Convention is getting together with team members from all across the U.S.  We have fun exchanging gifts and this year my Mom made all of us these cute flowers for our hair.  This year's convention theme was "Viva!" so they were perfect for the occasion.  We joined on the night before convention for a little team get-together and then headed to Downtown Disney for some play time!  Here are photos of the group that joined for dinner.

We all posed for a group picture before heading to Downtown Disney.
We were taking the photo when the lights went out in the bus so Kristi made for a great photo opp in being silly!
You know...as scrapbookers...we are all about the photo opportunities!  This was in front of a t-shirt shop.  Could you have guessed?

I sure had a blast but miss my girls terribly!  There is no lack of fun when we are together!

Ready to scrap the day away and still praying for some more rain today (and thunder and lightning...in a safe way).  ENJOY YOUR DAY!
