Awesome! The whole Brewin Family six-pack is getting geared up for you all! The money we save in planefare goes into the vino account. There are lots of add-ons people could do too for their family vacations. Wine country is really close. As is great river rafting and Gold Country. Maybe Arnold or Maria will stop by! Yeah!!!!

Hope everyone is having a great time in Boston.

Yes, I can't wait! As soon as I have a minute to breathe, I'm booking my room!! We are going to make a vacation out of it. Maybe we should all rent some rentals somewhere before or after the convention!

We are talking about Sacramento already! The kids can't wait!! We just got our stimulus check from the government (I think this might be the first time that it pays to have a lot of kids!! Laughing ) and we are feeling pretty stimulated!! We are wanting to save that money to pay for plane fare to California!! DH grew up in the Bay Area and we have always wanted to take the kids there!! This is going to be great!!

I really hope they are able to learn from the logistic mistakes in Boston and make Sacramento much more accomodating!! See you there!!

How do you find the info on the hotel, etc? I noticed it wasn't on the NDSC site yet.

So if we plan a vacation out of it should we look for somwhere in the Sacramento, San Francisco, Wine Country, or Lake Tahoe area?? I've already found some cool places to rent in each area. There's also some "estates" with like 8 bedrooms that would be nice for those of you who could live with eachother for a week. We only have 380 more days to plan you know! ROFL.

Yeah!!!! We might actually be able to make that one. My husband has family in the area (an hour away). All I need to do is convince him that we should go for a visit. Hey, while we're there, we could hit a super cool conference too!

We will be there. If anyone finds out what hotel it's going to be at post away. I want to go ahead and book our rooms. I am sooooo excited and I think we are going to make a long vacation out of it.

We are going to try really hard to see you all in Sacramento next year! We lived outside of San Francisco for a few years and still have contacts there so we are hoping to make a vacation out of it as well!!

THE 37th NDSC NATIONAL CONVENTION
July 31-August 2, 2009 • Sacramento, California


After our 2008 trip to Boston, we’re heading West! Next year’s annual “family reunion” will be in the heart of gold rush country, Sacramento, California. Hotel information should be posted soon, so check back often.

Ever wonder what an NDSC Convention looks like? Susan Dunbar has shared a link to nearly 600 photos she took at the 2008 event. You may view them, and if desired purchase copies, at the Kodak Gallery site. Additionally, NDSC Board Member, Jay Silverman, has provided links to convention photos and banquet photos that can be downloaded free of charge. Also, Roxanne Hoke-Chandler and board member Tonia Ferguson shared their photos from the luncheon of African American parents.
