After celebrating with our neighbor, Sophia and I headed downtown to our favorite books festival: Books by the Banks. We had such a fun time last year and I was looking forward to the event. It was rather crowded when we arrived and the toddler was going through a sugar crash and in need of a nap.
I was looking forward to meeting Marc Brown, but unfortunately things didn't work out. We arrived in time for his talk, but Sophia had little patience to sit for a half hour. The line at his book signing table was quite long so we missed out on that too. She did enjoying dancing and singing during one of the performances.
Sophia did select two new books and loved meeting all of the mascots. She gave each one she saw a hug and a high five.
We will be attending next year if we can!
