musings of a hopefilled soul

Whether you are an Obama supporter or not, you have to admit the Inauguration itself, is a pretty awesome event.  One that none of our family has experienced, until recently.

My step daughter and son-in-law have now broken through on this arena. Rob and Tara Hach are the owners of Anemometry Specialist, a wind data collection company in Alta, Iowa.  In 2010 they were Iowa’s Small Business Person of the Year!

As a dedicated Republican, Rob stepped beyond party lines to back President Obama for re-election because of his support of the wind energy tax credit, so vital to the survival of the wind energy business. Rob introduced President Obama on the campaign trail in Sioux City Iowa this summer.  He also had breakfast with President Obama along with other invited Iowans during one of the President’s numerous trips to Iowa.

While we knew the possibilities were out there for them to be invited to the Inauguration, until it became a reality we didn’t clearly understand the honor they received and the privilege they enjoyed.

This is at the White House in the Oval Office.  Too Cool!!! Rob is the gentleman about

in the middle of the pack with the red tie.  Tara is on his left but very hard to see.

This was on Friday before the Inauguration.

Up at 3:30am to get ready for the day.  Wow!

They saw Katy Perry and other celebs!

The float on which the 8 Citizen Co-chairs would ride for the parade. They were the

last float in the parade but my husband and I were glued to the TV and were able to

finally see him!

Tara watched the parade from this area. Right across the street from the President’s

seating area.  It was cold and a long wait to see her husband Rob on the float!

A night to remember, up on stage at the Inaugural Ball!

Hey kids, we are so happy for the opportunity you were given.  We lived vicariously

through you as we watched the entire process on Monday 1/21/13. You were able to

experience history in the making!

  1. It really is an event to see I know me and my hubby watched the whole thing I would of love to of went to DC that day but it was just way to cold for me….

  2. Its great to learn that people are looking for other sources of energy.

    And going to an event with pomp and circumstance is always exhilarating. 🙂

  3. How exciting. No matter which side of the fence you are on, spending time with the President of the United States is an honor. Congratulations to your family.
