I had a great time in Chicago with Josh at the first of the month. He had a legislative conference to attend so I tagged along. We ate dinner at Harry Carey's one night and for some reason, this is the only picture I have of the two of us in Chicago.
In other August news, we won our primary election with over 60% of the vote in a three man race! Yay Monty! http://www.lankfordforcongress.com/
I'm afraid September is going to be just as busy, if not more busy than August. I will be heading out of town the first of September to attend the Republican National Convention in Minneapolis. It will be my first convention and I think it will be a really neat experience!
I have to fly back early on that Thursday for a Youth Encouragment Services (YES) dinner. Josh is really involved with YES (http://www.youthencouragement.org/) and is the president of the board this year. If you aren't familiar with this organization and are looking for a neat charity to get involved with, this is the one! Below is a picture of Jevon Kearse volunteering at one of the centers last week.
Josh's birthday is the night after the YES dinner and I have no idea what to get him. Any ideas you may have for a great (and cheap!) "guy gift" would be greatly appreciated!
I hope to do a better job of updating my blog in September so be sure to stop by! :)
