    We could have done so much for them entertainment wise, and even though much happened in a way slightly different than how we were told things would go, a great effort by everyone.

    Sorry to have so bossy.

    Moo!

    Our very own "Where's Waldo?" - Did you make it home ok Kyle? ;)

    It was great to see everyone yesterday. I'll bet Chris is taking a nap already, and a much-deserved one after all the hard work! Thanks to everyone else who worked so hard to make yesterday such a success. We really shined. :D

    well, my night ended badly for me. Last night i didn't lock my car due to carrying everything in in one trip. I got into my car today to find the door not closed all the way. My center glove box was open and my gps, stand, and adapter were gone!!! I was mad at the thing yesterday, but not enough for it to be stolen!!!

    I would recommend we no longer accept doing any photo op situations that involve money. Granted, 100% of the proceeds were for Camp Good Days, but with the exception of the "Duel Darth Vader" version, it turned out to be a bust.

    We do pictures for free so readily at all other events, I know a few of us had to stop ourselves when asked for pictures and say "actually, they're doing it here for $5.00." We had a few people interested and then immediately lost interest after being told that. And then being asked to try and get people to come over before expressing interest to get their photos taken just seemed a little awkward, personally.

    Don't get me wrong, they meant well and the money obviously is going to a great cause, but the actual mechanics of the setup seem to hurt more than help.

    Had an absolute great time at this event. Everyone deserves kudos! =D=

    But, boy, was I wooped Sunday. I crashed on my bed twice in 1 day for a nap.

    Looking forward to Saturday's meeting. So are my boys.

    While this doesn't completely put everyting into words, I want to say thank you to everyone. Dan and I spent a lot of time helping plan the gala and even though some things didn't work as planned, we once again helped make an event a special one.

    Special thank you to the troops who came out and helped make the event a success! I haven't had that much fun since ...the week before! Everyone deserves a big kudos for the excellent and professional appearance that we put on. I have heard nothing but excellent remarks from both CGD and the guests. We should all be proud!

    We sweated and worked hard for a very good cause! I had a great time in costume and out! I haven't uploaded photos yet, but will post a link when I do.

    I was very touched when the camper gave me a picture she colored as a thank you. At the end of the day, I know that I made her smile and helped her escape for a few hours.

    Special thanks to Mindy who filled in and freed up time for me to make this happen.

    A big thank you to Chris and Dan for all of their time and effort with the Gala. You guys did a lot of behind the scenes stuff.

    What a great time! So good to see our out of town friends again! If anyone has pictures, please post the links... left our camera at home. (DOH!) Even though Rob and I had a lot of running around with the dance recital, it was so worth it. The after party was such great fun with everyone. Nice to have an excuse to get all dressed up and have an evening out with the hubby.

    Chris & Dan did all of the legwork and made it really easy for us to just come in and do our thing! Thanks guys!

    The afterparty was awesome and I hope everyone that came in from out of town had a good time.

    No one parties like the North Ridge!

    Here's a link to my Pictures
