          26. Picking on Joey and hear her scream! (For as many of you that did this I am surprised it didn't get the cut)

          27. Meeting the President of Ridge Tool and watching him give tips to the members during the competitions.

          28. cooked-to-order waffles every morning.

          29. Waking Adam before he woke me up!

          30. Beating my husband in one of the competitions.

          31. Winning an awesome trophy that made my hubby jealous! (It was for scoring the least amount of points during bowling)

          32. The Ridge guys spelling everything wrong on my trophy after they found out I was the winner!

          33. Watching Charlie turn the tables.

          34. Bowling, chicken wings, go kart racing, mini golf, bbq brisket, not having to cook the entire week

          35. Staying up late and getting up early just to be able to hang out with everyone as long as possible.

          36. Talking about all the people who flaked at the last minute and didn't show up!

            37. Enjoying the drive to the event from Chicago
            38. Meeting fellow forum members (putting faces to names even though I will forget 5 minutes later)
            39. Watching my daughter compete against all the pro's

            Everyone else seem to have touched base on many of the thoughts I had as well.
