One of the highlights is that on the last day, we were able to find Georgia Girl, who was also at the Convention! She is a very sweet lady. I didn't have my camera or phone on me when I stopped at her table, so I didn't get her picture, but her friend at the table did take a picture of us all together. So, Georgia Girl, if you don't mind on sending me a copy of that photo, I would love it! I also met a couple of my Flickr friends and a whole bunch of new people.
What was very interesting was that our Table Host, Rhonda, was also from Michigan. Since we are also from Michigan, we thought it was quite a coincidence!
Without further delay, I will post some of the photos we took at the convention. I will probably split the posting of photos up a bit, so there will probably be at least two posts on this!

The welcome doll was received at registration. She was in a pretty big box with lots of extra space, so you knew that more was coming!

We also got a free doll, which was another Poppy Parker. This all exceeded my expectations!
Well, that is all for now. I will tell you about the 2nd day, Friday, October 14 (which was my shopping day!) in the next post. There will be lots of photos in that one 'cuz I did purchase a few dolls!
