Today is my favorite day of Founder's Circle, it is all amazing but I love going to Kanab to meet all the hard workers that make us Demonstrators look so good.
This year we had an extra special welcome….Cherokee was out at the end of the road so we didn't get lost. I quick took a picture as we drove by.
As we drive up to the Kanab Manufacturing Facility all the workers come out with signs and cheer us on and we give it right back to them. They work so hard and I hope they know how much we appreciate them. I don't care if I achieve Founder's Circle 20 times, I am going every time to see them and thank them.
How fun eh? The guy in the checkered shirt with the I (Heart) Demonstrators sign is Kris and he was our tour guide and he was so sweet. Meg told him I wore hearing aids and have a hard time hearing so he made sure to talk loud or a couple times he took me a side to say stuff when someone else was telling our group stuff.
Then we headed to the plant and we can't take pictures there, but it is so neat to see all the steps, and new stuff that will be done there. We also got to see a new stamp set being made and we could cut them and pack the boxes too…we were so excited when Kris told us that we got one of these new sets right then. Yeehaw!
Then we headed out to the rock to get our picture taken. This year Stampin' Up! had workers out there to take our pictures, so it went much faster. My friend Cherokee was out there and I was so glad as last year when I saw him for the first time in a few years it was in the plant so I couldn't get our picture taken…not this year though…
…isn't he cute? I met Cherokee at my very first convention, he was the one that gave me my back pack when we checked in and since then we always made a point to visit briefly and give each other a hug at every event, tell each other what the family is doing etc. but he has not worked at the conventions for a while, so it is nice to see him here.
Then it was back on the bus to go to lunch at the rubber park…well it is not called that, but SU! donates all these scraps of rubber and that is what the kids play on…so cool and bouncy when you walk on it.
Lunch was awesome, a real honest to goodness turkey sandwich (not that processed stuff), there was potato salad and fruit and vegetables too. For dessert I picked creme brulee…and I was so darned hungry I didn't take any pictures….ooopseee!
Here's Meg and I fighting over who gets paroled first. I'm older so they let me go before Meg, then she used her sweet innocent looks and got out herself shortly after. Good thing as we had a date with the Little Mermaid at Tuacahn Theater.
It's outside with the red rock cliffs in the background. You can't take pictures during so this is the stage, water comes down from the back and actually onto the stage so the boat was in the water and so were the fish and all the other critters.
It's an adorable apron and a matching flower brooch, usually we get something that will tie in to our final group event. There was no note, so I am like…are we going to cook? clean? I am very curious, I will know tomorrow around 3 or 4 pm. Tomorrow is our last full day here, and I am going to sleep in, I am tired tonight. It is 1am…holy mackeral (tieing into the fish tail we saw tonight) Ha!
Well that's all for today folks.
Have an awesome Saturday and thanks so much for stopping in.
