Mom and Dad's Educational Saturday

The big activity for us today was going to the annual genealogy seminar in Totem Lake - then some other stuff.
 9AM  - Arrived at the Redmond LDS church building for the seminar.
The people who organize this have been doing it for over 10 years

10AM - My first class was about being able to get information from the census.
Did you know that not only is their a national census but many states have their own census?

11AM - There were many classes one could attend and all were free.
One could pre-register or just walk in.  We chose to pre-register 'cause I wanted to buy lunch.
This class was about the ins and outs of writing a book.

Noon - This class was about getting info. from cousins and other living relatives.
The title was "Bagging a Live One".

1PM - Lunch time in the cultural hall.

2PM - This was my last class.  The subject was writing an autobiography.
All classes were filled to capacity.

3PM - One the way home we stopped at the nice little "French" bakery for some hot chocolate.
The owner is pictured.
She is having troubles with her old Rondo sheeter so I gave some ideas on how to fix it.

4PM - We decided to go home via the Woodinville-Redmond Road.
This is known as Hollywood.

5PM - Getting gas at Fred Meyer.  We get a discount if we buy groceries there

6PM - Our local ATM.  Needed some cash for our overnight trip to Oregon on Sunday.

Bagging a live one? Ha, that's funny! And I do want to know what they taught you in that class. That conference would have been cool to go to if we were in town. Maybe next year.
