Oh Yeah, We Did Work The Trade Show!

We returned to Boston and checked into the Boston Waterfront Hotel. We got there at 10 am so assumed we wouldn't be able to check in for several hours. They were so thoughtful, they found us 2 rooms that were connected. BUT.... would we mind that they were on the 16th floor? The top floor... the one with the view???? It was gorgeous!
The pictures truly do not do it justice... we saw several cruise ships come in and out of the harbor. How fun!!My favorite meal while we were in Boston was at Anthony's Pier 4. It was a beautiful restuarant out on the Pier. (Who would've guessed?) I had the Oven Roasted Seafood Combination which included shrimp, salmon, swordfish, scallops, polenta and zucchini. served with lime-chive beurre blanc. They also served popovers before the meal came. They were delicious!! I don't remember what everyone else had but I do recall that everyone really liked their meal.The Boston Convention Center is connected right to our hotel. How nice, especially when Laurence was as handicapped as he was. The Convention Center is a new, very nice facility. This is a quick picture I took from the level above on the day of set-up. Not the best with the glare etc. But it shows how everything is bare cement, forklifts running all over the place etc. The transformation always amazes me!! I love to see it go from bare cement, boxes and crates everywhere, to the next day. Pure GLITZ!! Not a hair out of place!! This is a picture of our booth. We get a small one 10' X 10'. This is my mom, Viv, Aisling, me and Laurence.
Laurence broke down and used a wheelchair at the show, it was just too hard on him not to use one. But, the hotel was so thoughtful, they let us use theirs for the entire time so I didn't have to find one to rent.

One of the perks of attending the show is all the "treasures" you get to bring home. Aisling was able to get lots of fun things...toothbrushes, baby stuff for her friend...colloidal silver....licorice etc.
Then it was time for the show to be over and Aisling and Viv took to the skies. They had to leave for the airport at 4 am Monday morning. :( We sure missed them!
