Wakey wakey at 6am!
That would be 4am Idaho time.
We piled in Heather's BMW (Big Mormon Wagon, I think. Big and Mormon for sho) and we wandered blindly for a bit.
Then we found the college we were going to and praise Buddha, they had signs with arrows! Just like when I'm looking for a yard sale in Idaho! I totally felt at home over that.
Once we arrived on campus we got our awesome nametags.
Funny story about the name tag.
I was sitting on the floor, absentmindedly twirling my name tag and thinking to myself that I needed a magic marker to I could write "Babywearing Ninja" on my tag for funsies.
I turned it over to see where I could fit such a title and lo and behold... Babywearing Ninja was ALREADY written on it!
I was so happy! My peeps know me.
I got to see my tribe.
Missed seeing her.
As you can see, my camera takes crap pictures.
Signs. I love signs.
Our Conference Queen... Ann Marie! Bless that woman for planning this conference.
After a bit I found some of my peeps and we went touristing. Now, it was 105 in DC that day and that suuuuuuuuuucked.
But I was happy so I sweated a giant heart through my clothes. How cool is that?
Ever the police wife, I went with the "advance team" and made sure the museum would be there when the read of the gang arrived.
(Later I realized we were walking along the metro route and could have ridden there. Sigh.
I was exhausted. Really exhausted.
I was also struggling with allergies at this point. My allergy pill I take in Idaho was NOT cutting it. Sigh.
It was pretty neat.
Day 2 wrap up: Hot. Muggy. Friends everywhere.
