Tourism Conference

December 5, 2008

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a member of the Board of the Provincial Tourism Industry Association.  We left after Mass on Sunday to head to the city for their annual Tourism Summit.  I was so proud to be part of the Association.  What an amazing job the staff did of planning and executing the Conference!  We enjoyed performances by Squid, an opening keynote address by Chad Hymas whose presentation was so inspirational people were still talking about it at the end of the conference.  There were also presentations by the Disney Institute and Evan Soloman, as well as amazing food, and networking opportunities.  The Conference ended with a Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony, celebrating the achievements of some of the best & brightest in the Industry.   Wow! 

The kids did great, as usual, with my parents and Olivia went the whole three days without an accident!  I think we can officially consider her trained!  We were obviously exhausted when we arrived home, but the kids were so excited to see us and to tell us all their news.  I think we’ve taken multi-tasking a bit to far, when Sarah got some post-it notes and started issuing “tickets”.  D’Arcy’s was “No sleeping at the Table!” (yes, he fell asleep while the kids were finishing – I told you we were exhausted!) and mine said “No brushing your teeth while you’re on the potty!”  Don’t all moms do that??!

Now that I’ve caught up the eight loads of laundry, it’s time to start moving into Christmas mode.  We had a dinner that was scheduled for tonight cancel, so D’Arcy & I are heading out to the Teachers’ Union Dance tonight with Martha & Stephane.  The hospital is having their annual party here tomorrow night, and Sunday the three older kids & I are going to see “The Nutcracker”.  However, this morning’s task is to start our Christmas Cards – usually my favorite task…  I’m doing a separate card this year for family & friends or for guests.  Must go get at it!
