Favorite Convention Pics-

Here are some of my favorite sites and events from the Convention and Washington DC. All though I loved it there (minus the heat) I don't think I could handle living there. It's way to big of a town for this country girl!!!
I really enjoyed the 4th of July fireworks put on by the hotel-the best I have ever seen.
Some of My favorites from the Museum of American History were Julia Child's Kitchen, the history of the sewing machine and the Ball Jar. See Dorthy's ruby slippers and Minnie Pearls hat.
The best part of site seeing by far for me was the changing of the guard at the tomb of the unknown soldier. It was a beautiful ceremony and an honor to see how all of the soldiers are honored.
Washington National Cathedral was breath taking and the stain glass windows were stunning. On top of that they had AC!!
I made some very special new friends and spent the week with the best ladies around!!
I really enjoyed general session and business class at convention-
And I was amazed by the guy who painted Jeanette's picture with just a few buckets of paint and his fingers!!! Someday I want to have my picture painted like that.
