Long Beach, California

Every year the company I work for sends two of the Pathologist Assistant's to our yearly conference, which this year was is Long Beach. This conference takes place all over the U.S. and Canada. The conference is a week long and all of our expenses are paid which is very nice of our company to do. My mom came with me and we spent the week: at the conference, eating, touring the aquarium and Queen Mary, and shopping.
My mom usually comes with me as she is completely content waiting by the pool for me to get out of class; this would get old for Andy. I am usually in classes from 8 a.m. to around 1 p.m.
Here are some beautiful boats that were around an area we were shopping at.


This is Jeremy and Gina. Jeremy used to work for the same company I work for now, but he has since moved to a different hospital here in Spokane. We do love this though as there are now always three of us at these conferences. Gina is wonderful. I work with her and she traveled with us. We had tons of fun with the girls. Jeremy brought his beautiful wife and three boys. We sure had alot of fun eating and enjoying the pool.
The next two are photos of the aquarium. What a wonderful day it was. They had places where you could touch sharks and rays, which I took full advantage of.
It was a great trip with temperatures in the 80's. I was very glad though to get home to my amazing husband.

Abby,
It looks like you had a lot of fun with your mom once again. I think that is so neat that you get to do a yearly trip with her.

Wow, it looks like you had a lot of fun. Did you actually go to the conference HA HA. I don't know if Long Beach will be the same after you wild women were there. Take care.
