Zach (another OMM fellow) and Jamie are due to have a baby girl in the next month, so we threw them a baby shower on March 4th. Bethany made chili and I did salad, and then between us had like 3 deserts. We go them a tandem stroller and pretty pink dresses for Easter, which their daughter Lily is seems to approve here.
The second weekend in March I came down to St. Louis for the Advanced Pranic Healing workshop. It was a great, rejuvenating weekend with some great friends like Katie M, the Mikes, and Chris. The first lunch we had was at an Indian place, and it was so good, I stuffed myself and totally forgot to take a pic. The next day we trekked across a giant field and climbed a stone wall to get to Schnucks.
Aww, the beginnings of spring. We've been seeing more green stuff in the yard, and its been so nice, a couple days a week we're able to leave the door open for the dogs to wander in and out,
The third weekend in March we went to Chicago to visit our friend Ben. We were either at his place chilling, at our hotel chilling (in a dog hair-free bed!), or having some excellent food. Again, too delicious to stop and take a pic, but it included sushi, pho, and of course, pizza!
The last week of March Josh came down to the AAO Convocation with me (its an OMM thing). The conference was a little disappointing, but Little Rock was surprisingly nice! Its a cool river city like St. Louis, the weather was nice, and there was some pretty fun stuff to do. The first night we had an authentic Italian dinner at the hotel. The next night, Dr. Kuchera (AAO bigwig) took a bunch of us out to sushi. On a lighter day, Josh and I explored the city. Then the last day we went to the President's reception.
Though it wasn't the best conference I've been to, there were some bright spots. I am a member of NUFA, the fellows organizaiton, so I got to go to select NUFA forums. In this one, Drs. Kuchera, Crowe and Farnum (pictured here) gave us a private talk about the thoracic inlet. Dr. Farnum was in my previous Founder's Day pics, and he is amazing, still practicing in his 90's!
As always, the pups loved being at Grandpa's and are cute in general.
