We had so much fun in New Orleans at convention this year and already can’t wait till next year. We listened to some great speakers, learned some new tricks, wanted to buy way too many awesome thing at the trade show and most importantly we LOVED hanging out with all of our friends, new and old. We miss everyone already and can’t wait till next year. Here’s a few fun iPhone images from our 2012 Convention. and Thanks Ray for taking video of me giving Gary getting his Masters medallion!
