Republican Convention day 1

Mr. Nielson, Lottie and I made it to Tampa!
We were bused to the convention center last night and I was blown away.
The security was so extremely tight and about 5 miles in every direction was
blocked off with guards and police personnel.
And of course lots of people who love and support Mitt and the Republican party.

Once in the convention center, we were able to sit comfortably
in one of the upper level suites,
drink some Mormon Coke, talk with some Mitt-supporter Olympians,
and I nursed Lottie whenever I needed too.

One of my favorite speakers tonight was Ann Romney.
She looked beautiful and radiated love and support for her husband.
She told of Mitt's warm personal side.
Favorite excerpt from her speech:

I can't tell you what will happen over the next four years.
But I can only stand here tonight as a wife and a mother and a
grandmother, an American, and make you this solemn commitment.
This man will not fail!

I am excited to see what today brings.
We didn't get to bed until about 2:00 am last night
These GOP's, man they know how to partay!
Day two here
Day three here
