No Office Day 5/18/14

I took my official No Office Day this month and broke it into 2 half days, each with a group of students who are redeeming OctoberFest experiences to accompany me. The students did everything: mapped out our schedule of where we went and when, took the pictures, decided what got tweeted, and distributed horseshoe hoorays. Here is some of what we experienced:
