Saturday was a very eventful day….

Since I had gotten a free copy of RootsMagic 4 in my geneabloggers goodie bag (Thanks Thomas and Denise for putting those bags together! They were stocked with goodies galore!), I decided to stop by one of the classes put on about RootsMagic. I learned quite a bit and while I haven’t decided if this is the absolute best genealogy program, I do like it so far.
Since we had some time between the lectures and the Geneablogger dinner, I decided to take a break, wander around the exhibit hall, and socialize. It was nice to have a moment to breathe and take in the fun day.
Then came dinner: FUN, FUN, FUN! I sat at a table next to Gini and her husband, Amy Coffin…and wait: across the table was Lisa Louise Cooke. I have to admit, I got a bit starry eyed when she sat down. It was a pleasure to meet her – and even more of a pleasure to find out how down to earth she was. She was bubbly, fun, and energetic. She was incredibly easy to talk to and it was almost as if we had known eachother forever!
It seemed as if for the first 20-30 minutes, everyone was just taking pictures and socializing:
The dinner was so much fun!!!! I had a blast! At the end of the dinner I went to my Aunt Caroline’s house and knocked out! All-in-all, an eventful, fun, educational day!
