I love when my kids go to CPAC every year. They come home with the best stories. Last year Leah got to meet and actually CONVERSE with Ann Coulter. This year they saw President Bush speak - had to get up at 4 am to get in line for that one - as well as Dinesh D'Souza, Michele Malkin, and Newt Gingrich. Leah says it's a huge Republican PARTY and just tons of fun.
You know how sometimes you'll be standing there talking to someone and somebody taps you on the shoulder as they're walking by, and you turn to look and no one's there? Well, Leah and her friend were in line waiting to see Ann Coulter when Leah felt a tap. She turned to look and, sure enough, no one was there, but her friend was standing with wide eyes and mouth agape. When she could speak, she said, "That was GEORGE WILL!!!" Too cool. George Will played a joke on my daughter. I feel famous!
Here's her view of the President speaking:
And this one of Newt Gingrich:
And a good time was had by all. Now, unfortunately, they are back at school studying to make something of themselves. Real life does get in the way sometimes.
Be thankful ~
