Houston Trip

I traveled to Houston for my job to attend a conference. I had time for a little fun while there and was able to see some buddies from other ports and the industry.


With my coworker and teammate, Andre. We set up our booth the day before the trade show.


With my coworker, Bob.


Art in the park across the street from our hotel.


It just so happens that the Mariners were playing the Astros while we were there. The M’s won in 11 innings 4 to 3. We were happy in enemy territory. It was my first time seeing a Seattle team in another city/state.



Outside of Minute Maid Park.


There was a business run opening day. It seemed like a good idea at the time, LOL. It was a good way to start a long day. You could do four miles or six miles. I opted to walk the four mile. In a nice surprise, there was also another walker. A woman named Adrian from Jacksonville.


Found a few minutes during one of the days for a short walk to do just this: Pause.


There were many receptions on all nights of the trade show. Wednesday saw us bowling at Vancouver BC’s reception and then dancing and listening to good music at House of Blues at AAL’s reception.


So that time I did an armadillo race with my buddy, Randy, from Portland. I came in second out of three. There was also a mechanical bull, but I was wearing a skirt. Otherwise, I would have loved to do it!


I absolutely loved this church.
