Blue Light Special

Well we went to Flagstaff on Saturday and Sunday it was a blast. We were so stoked to have a little weekend get away, thanks to Tim, the CEO at Performance Software, we didn't have to pay for our room which was awesome.


On Saturday night we met up for the cocktail hour before our dinner, they gave out awards and Chris got an award "The Blue Light Special 2008" they gave him an engraved thumb drive, it was hilarious, go Chris, way to be a good intern and cheap labor for them! After the awards they had a raffle and are table was so lucky, we all won something, it was super fun. We got a nice performance software jacket.


On Saturday we woke up to 6 inches of snow and it was beautiful, since we didn't want to rush back home in the snowy weather we decided to check out Sunset Crater and Wupatki Pueblo ruins it was so fun. When we went to the visiting center their was this family there and they were Danish I heard them speaking and I just had to talk to them, so I was a bit nervous but I went over and tried to spark up a conversation, I told them I lived in DK and heard them speaking Danish and I had to come over and talk to them, I guess I forgot that Danes can sometimes be more closed and reserved than Americans and The converstation was extremely short and I was so embarrassed because they weren't very friendly. But hey at least I got to speak Danish for like two seconds and I got a small reminder of what it felt like sometimes as a missionary there, trying to talk to people on the street. Anyway after my brief encounter with the Danes we were on our way to check out the National Park. We had a blast visiting the ruins and the volcano, it was a great weekend!

Ps... so i just noticed your wallpaper and i love it! I don't know what it is about Owls but they melt my heart. If i had money Avry's room would already be decked out in the O's. I think all geniuses think alike. :-)
