CHA Trip

My daughter, two dear friends and I went to CHA together last week and had a wonderful time! I think we all went home with the feeling of  “I needed that!”

I did a lot of networking, got to meet the wonderful owners, crew, and fellow design team members of ICE Resin®, got to go to some really cool restaurants  and best of all – got to go to Disney Land!!

This is a long post but it is mostly pictures so will probably take you less time  to read it than it took me to create it :)

The Fab Four

Cindy Cima Edwards, April Derrick, Rebecca Maske, and Angie Cockroft

This was one of the cool pics my daughter April took.

I forgot to get a pic of me and Jen Cushman, so I will include a pic here of Jen and Susan at the Buca di Beppo Italian Restaurant – we had a blast!

 Carol came with my daughter, I and our friends to Shabu Shabu – quite the dining experience!

me and suze

I got to meet Suze Miller Weinberg which was terrific – love her!

I thought this guy was good looking so had to take a pic.

April and I

My daughter and I used to visit Disneyland or Disney World a lot when she was younger. That was over 25 years ago so this was a very special trip indeed!
