D.C. Dental Convention Part Two

The storm was so severe that Capital Hill closed and the last two days of the convention were canceled. Along with congress being closed most of the monuments and museums were closed as well. Out of the 19 Smithsonian museums only 2 stayed open.

Monkey see, monkey do:)



D.C. does have beautiful architecture!



Just likt the Nigh at the Museum





The Hope Diamond





Air & Space Museum


That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.

D.C. Dental Convention Part One

Several weeks ago Brady went to Washington D.C. for an ASDA convention.
The trip was a little rocky at best! While he was there D.C. got covered with over 30 inches of snow. Besides switching hotels and re-scheduling flights he and his classmates had a good time.



First night in D.C. ready to see some sights.

Jon Haynie on a huge snow bank outside their hotel.

Jazz vs. Warriors

For Brady's birthday this year I got him tickets to the Jazz game vs. the Warriors. It was LDS Night at Oracle Arena. They had the missionaries sing the national anthem and a talk with Thurl Bailey after the game.
We drove down with the Warburton's.
We stopped and got some pizza and gelato before the game.

We were surprised at how small the Oracle Arena felt. It says that it holds 19,596, but Energy Solutions feels much larger.


We sat near the Haynie's

Jake and Kim saving us seats down on the floor to listen to Thurl Bailey's talk.


Thurl Bailey talked a little about his conversion to the church and a little about playing in the NBA.

Thurl was so nice to stay after and take pictures and sign autographs for everyone.

NBA players are so much taller in person:)

While waiting to take our pictures with Thurl we saw a couple different Jazz players
Andrei Kirilenko was taking pictures and signing autographs with some kids.


We also saw Paul Millsap and CJ Miles

We tired to get Deron Williams to sign an autograph but he had places to be.

The game was so much fun! Go JAZZ!

Lilly

Poor Alligator! We gave lilly this little guy for Valentine's Day. Within a half hour Lilly had the stuffing out and all over the floor. I wish she was a little easier on her toys.

We've tried having her play with balls and ropes but she LOVES stuffed animals.
