So when the opportunity arose, I felt confident leaving Emerson in her care for a few hours while we went out one evening. It was so nice to know that Emerson was being well cared for and Jesse and I had a blast hanging out. Here are a few pictures from the evening:
Another night we had a dinner for all of the conference attendees. I wear jeans about 99 percent of the time so I was pretty excited to get an opportunity to dress up. Of course my favorite picture of the three of us is blurry:
This one's not blurry but it looks like Emerson is chewing her fingers off. How does anyone get a decent family shot? Do tell! :)
I promise I got some cute group shots but I didn't ask anyone's permission to post them on the blog so for now you just to get to see a million picture of Jesse, E, and me. :)
The food was amazing, but of course I only took one picture! This was a goat cheese and cucumber salad with beetroot dressing. It was so good but the best part was the main course: Indian food! It was probably the best naan I have ever had. I'm practically drooling just thinking about it.
So now I have to explain this cheesy shot of me and the beads. On our first night there we had an icebreaker in one of the lounges. It was family friendly so we brought Emerson along. All night long she kept trying to play in these beaded curtains and all night long we managed to get her out of them. Just as we were getting ready to head back to our room for the night she managed to get back in the curtains. I got her out and started to walk away when the inevitable happened. One of the strings broke and beads fell everywhere. This wouldn't so bad except that there were tile floors and it sounded like a bead bomb went off. All conversations immediately stopped and everyone looked over to see what happened. It was so quiet that you could hear a
On our last night there we decided to do a low key dinner with our friends. Even though it wasn't anything fancy I knew it was my last chance to wear a dress and I wanted to wear my new necklace that I picked up at the market.
And Emerson wanted to dress up a little bit as well. I told her that she looks fabulous in anything but she insisted on purple because she thought it would really help her stand out in her golf cart. :)
We had such a fun time every night we were there, even on the nights that we just had a simple dinner with friends.
