Work Conference

Last week we had about 9 or 10 people from the Attachmate office in Seattle come into town and we had a two day work conference at the head of the Legal department's cabin up Provo Canyon. It was a long 2 days (especially Wednesday... I got picked up by my friend Tyler at 8:30 am and he didn't drop me off until 10 pm) of a lot of legal presentations.... but the scenery was good and we had some good food and we got to do some fun stuff as well. Like our "ice breaker" activity. We made paper airplanes and wrote two facts about ourselves and then threw them out of the window and everyone went and picked one up and read the facts and we guessed who the airplane belonged to. The 3 people's planes that went the farthest also got a prize.

At lunch we had a picnic at the park just up the road from the cabin. Some people rode bikes, some people played Frisbee, I on the other hand just sat on the grass and soaked up the sun. It was nice.

Later that evening, we headed to Sundance to take the ski lift.... which I love. Such a great way to relax while we enjoy such beautiful scenery. Once at the top most people hiked around... Tyler and I hung out for a little bit but then took the ski lift back down. A little bit later we had a dinner reservation at the restaurant there and had the most delicious 3 course meal that took us over 2 hours to get and eat. We estimated that our group's dinner bill was close to $1500! I could have bought a lap top!

The next day was a little shorter, we had lunch in midway at Taramuhara (which has an awesome salsa bar) and then we actually ended a little early which some then went to the airport, some hiked to the Timp Caves.... I wanted to go home early.... It was a good conference although it was tiring. It was nice to be out of the office doing something different for a couple of days. It was also nice to meet some of the people we work with in the Seattle office. Always better to know people personally when you work together.
