Festival of Books

Last weekend we drove into LA for the LA Times Festival of Books held on the UCLA campus. Thousands of Angelinos show up for this free event. It was unusually warm, but even with the heat and the crowds we still had a good time. Two large children's stages were set up with a full schedule of performances and readings (Prince Caspian from the new Narnia movie read a few chapters to the crowd). Little S enjoyed the performances of the Doodlebops and the Shushybyes (pictured below).

Little S working at one of the craft areas where kids could make their own books. We're working on proper scissor handling - it's been a slow process.

After the festival we went to dinner with our good friends Chris and Nicole who were in town.

Looked like fun. Was that advertised in the LA Times? I would love to find out about stuff like that for Samantha. Spread the word!

So we watched Lars and the Real girl the other night. Very funny. Thanks for the recommendation.
