USANA Convention and Babysitting

September 09, 2012  •  3 Comments

From August 12 to August 19, our energies were focused on taking care of Céline, our almost two year old granddaughter, while our daughter Julie was honored at the 20th USANA Convention in Salt Lake City. She was also a speaker at a training session that we enjoyed immensely.

We have set a number of various albums depicting the week. As some of them may not be of general interest, we kept them with a password. (Please ask for it if you are interested.) Here they come!

Du 12 au 19 août, nos énergies se sont concentrées sur prendre soin de Céline, notre petite fille de presque deux ans. pendant que notre fille Julie était honorée au 20ème Congrès international USANA à Salt Lake City. Elle était aussi conférencière dans une séance d'entraînement que nous avons beaucoup aimé.

Nous avons fait des albums présentant cette semaine-là. Comme ils ne sont pas d'intérêt général, nous les gardons avec un mot de passe. (Veuillez le demander si cela vous intéresse.). Les voici qui arrivent !

Adventures in babysitting

The USANA Convention had over 8,500 visitors from all over the world, Our job was to free Julie from the worries of being a mother --- at least from having a two year old wondering amongst the crowd.

Luckily, there were babysitting area in the Salt Lake City Convention Center, well organized by USANA, and also in the Energy Solutions Arena. We  took her as well to our KOA campground to enjoy the pool.

At the campground - The pool was also well used!

Aventures en garde d'enfants 

Le congrès Usana avait 8500 visiteurs du monde entier. Notre fonction était de libérer Julie de ses iquiétudes de mère --- au moins d'avoir un bébé de deux ans se promenant dans la foulle.

Heureusement, il y avait un endroit pour garder les enfants au Salt Lake City Convention Center, offert par USANA, et aussi un terrain de jeux à Energy Solutions Arena. Nous l'avons aussi amenée à notre camping pour profiter de la piscine.

Nous étions très fiers de voir Julie faire une présentation de plus d'une heure avec son amie Pat :

The delivery was excellent and the content very useful and informative. A great sense of humour! Many were in attendance, and she was applauded heavily by the California delegates! They loved her.

L'élocution était excellente et le contenu très utile et instructif. Un bon sens de l'humour ! Il y avait beaucoup de spectateurs et elle a été longuement applaudie par les délégués de la Californie ! Ils l'ont adorée.

Parting notes:

For Louise and I, the week was great, totally tiring, exhausting, but we enjoyed the people, especially, Julie's group.

Dernières réflexions :

Pour Louise et moi, ce fut une excellente semaine, totalement fatiguante, épuisante, mais nous avons aimé rencontrer les gens, surtout le groupe de Julie.

Babysitting was easy, Céline is adorable and we were very proud of Julie's achievements.

Garder Céline était facile, elle est si adorable; nous étions aussi très fiers des réussites de Julie.

Louise, as all USANA distributors in attendance, received a free iPad 2. She is now taming it. 

Finally, it is a good time to rest as we are on our way to Capitol Reef National Park.

Enfin, c'est le temps de se reposer, en nous dirigeant vers Capitol Reef National Park.



Thanks Julie!
I will definitely bring my stroller with me, and will plan distractions for him :)
My son can be calm if I talk to him before, so I trust everything will be okay.
Thanks again! :)

Hi Marisela!
There are few ways to help you with your experience. There is a parents area in the Salt Palace, with kids toys and activities and a live stream from the Energy Solutions Arena. It is also ok to bring a small child to the back at the Salt Palace training sessions. Bring a stroller, iPad or something else to keep him occupied. Lots of water for both of you and take breaks! Hope that helps!
There is also a play area at the Energy Solutions Arena up on the 5th floor I believe.
Hello, I found your page when searching the subject of babysitting. I'll explain.
I am single mom of a 3yo. I have been wanting to go to convention for 4 years now! Finally, it seems I'll finally make it. I am lucky to have a ticket, airplane and hotel arrangements, but I am going with my boy, as it is very difficult for me to leave my little one in Mexico. I would love to have any ideas, advice, etc. about going to convention with a little boy.
My budget is very reduced, so I am not able to travel with, say my mom or other person to take care of my son.
I will appreciate any comment. Thanks!
