Late last week I received an email from the National Down Syndrome Congress. It was the Exhibitor Application Form for their 36th annual convention. That means that the show is just around the corner! Susie and I are looking forward to being there. Click on the "36th annual convention" link earlier in this paragraph for details of the convention if you might be interested in attending.
Assuming that our application is accepted, we will be selling It'll Fit'll clothes this year. Last year we attended to talk to you guys about our idea and to get feedback. Several folks asked if we had clothes there, available for purchase at the show. I'm excited at the notion that this year the answer is Yes!
This year's convention will be held in Boston - at the Seaport World Trade Center - July 11th through the 13th. I heard great things about the lectures and workshops last year from the attendees who stopped by our booth and chatted. The exhibition hall had loads of activities to keep children of all ages occupied while parents visited the booths. We were very near the center stage area so I could watch everything that went on. There was always something going on! And it always looked and sounded fun.
Boston is a wonderful city and an ideal place for a summer vacation. It is, in my opinion, one of those cities which offers so much - especially if you consider the surrounding area as well - that you can't possibly take it all in during just one trip. I have visited often, for business and for pleasure (including family vacations; the kids love Boston too) and there are still new places I want to visit. If you do plan to attend and would like suggestions about what to do, or opinions about a particular spot, based on our family vacations and my own solitary adventures there, just drop me an email.
Hope that we have a chance to meet some of you there. July 11th will be here before we know it.
