What to Wear
Family Conference 2011 Keeping it Casual
Soon you will be packing your bags for the trip to Minnesota, and you may be wondering what kind of clothes to bring. We want this to be a fun and engaging experience for all, so we recommend that you dress casually. Just wear whatever makes you feel comfortable!

The Best Western has a great pool and it is July so you will want to pack a swimsuit! Also if you'd like to participate in the optional yoga session on Saturday morning, which will be led by Krista Hanson, also bring something that allows you to stretch and move around a bit! 

On Saturday afternoon and evening, we are asking our families to please wear their conference t-shirts; we'd like to get a group shot of everyone--another conference tradition!
Family Variety Show
Slaby talent show 2011 Saturday Evening
The Family Variety Show was a big hit in 2011, and we're bringing it back in 2013! So warm up those singing pipes, practice your best raspberries and silly faces, and don't forget to throw your bongos, batons, kazoos, or any other props you need into your suitcase so you'll be set to showcase your own fun family talent! Don't be shy! We're FAMILY, right?!
