AESA Retreat

I just realized that July is almost over. Didn't it just start?? It makes me sad to think I have not been able to really enjoy summer yet. At the same time I love everything that is keeping me busy. So I guess that evens it out... A little. I do miss taking the dogs to the beach almost every day though :/ I know they miss it as well! And by beaches I mean white sandy ones!

Since July is almost over I figured I should share pictures from The New Sanno. At the beginning of the month AESA held a retreat to The New Sanno (A hotel in Tokyo for service members, so we get better rates then other hotels) for those who had qualified with enough volunteer points. 

Initially I had qualified points wise, but two days before the retreat I had been voted in as the new Treaserer so I was able to go as a board member instead. I would have gone regardless.. It was just fun being as to say that ha. 

Our big thing for the retreat was that AESA paid for us to attend the Esscoffier dinner. It is a 7 course delisious meal. 

This was down the road from the hotel.. Has nothing to do with dinner ha.

Live music!

6 glasses! Water, champagne and 4 different wines.

There was two meat courses, but since I don't eat meat I didn't take any pictures of them.

Hung out in the bar for all of 5 minutes before going back to my room to email with Frank all night :)

I also got to finally experience their brunch! Too bad the food from the night before was still upsetting my stomach. I wasn't able to enjoy this as much as I would like. I'm hoping to in a few weeks though :)

Instead I loaded up on fruit.. Much better!

Mom and dad with their third child haha.

Fun, free weekend!
