Swoozies' Staff Retreat

Each year, the ladies on staff at Sojourn get to go on a fabulous retreat together for some much needed fun and relaxation. Sadly, Nancy did not get to go with us this year and she was missed! We stayed in Uptown Dallas, just blocks away from where Casey's sister, Morgan, lives. I didn't get to see her, but thought about her and hoped I'd run into her :)
Tay (pronounced Tie) and I were on the same page... We didn't even consult with each other.
We rode on the Trolley to go shopping and watch a movie. It was fun and free!

We took a salsa dancing lesson together. Kelly bought some new shoes just for the occasion. We had a great time, even though some of us had to be "the boy", since there were no real boys to dance with. Michal was my woman and she danced very well, despite her protestations.

We ended our time at the State Fair of Texas and we ate all sorts of delightful fried treats: Fletcher's corn dogs, fried s'mores, fried chocolate dipped strawberries, fried banana splits and fried chocolate truffles. No one wanted to try to chicken fried bacon, though. We're not that brave! Most of us loved on llamas and puppies, emus and ostriches (well, not really - they're so aggressive! But we tried), goats and pigs, kangaroos and camels. It was really fun and we were "wore out". It was a very quiet ride back to the church. Thanks, ladies, for being such awesome sisters, friends and co-workers.

No really, look'd like a GREAT time! :) And I'm so jealous of your awesome female staff retreat... that sounded like such a blast! And your mom's new puppy... ahhh!!! Such a cutie! Glad to know how I can keep up with your life :) Love and miss you!
