What a fun weekend!

Bug's dad had to work, so we hopped on the train and headed "home". After a yummy breakfast with Aunt Pat, we walked around town and visited some old friend...and made a brand-new one! Thomas is one week old. He came a bit early...heard Bug was coming to town, I guess.

We spent the day at the Celebration of MN Children's Authors & Illustrators. Always a fun event. Here's Bug and a friend, climbing on Max. (the creator of Mudboy...Bug's favorite sculpture)

Bug was a little sad when I told her that David LaRochelle wouldn't be at the show this year. I emailed him and found out that while he wasn't doing a reading at the show, he MIGHT come down for part of the day. You should have heard the SCREAM when Bug spotted him. Here she is with David and the picture/story she made for him.

We met Nancy Crocker and loved her book, Betty Lou Blue. Here she is with Bug after signing the book for Bug.

Here is Bug as a giant purple fish. She loved this.

This year, Bug decided that she was big enough to try the stilts...although she said she didn't want to fall and get stitches.

He got her to the tree where she was supposed to hang on and just practice walking in place for a bit, to get used to the weight. She immediately wanted to be done. We got a few more steps out of her and called it done. I think she'll give it another go next year.

Leaf girl

I took these a few weeks ago and forgot to post them. The girl was having fun with the BIG leaves from the tree in the neighbor's yard.

Of course, in Bug's world, EVERYTHING is a hat!

A few new drawings.

Bug is always busy, drawing. I like this first one a lot. She had a puppet-making class this summer and this is a drawing of one of the puppets that she made. He is playing basketball. Notice how she wanted to show that the ball was bouncing, so she drew it multiple times, and each one is colored in a little lighter than the last. Very cool. Oh, and at the bottom is a swingset, but "It's very far away. That's why it looks small". In the middle is his teddy bear and there is a cactus next to that.

This cookie-eating bat was made for the owner of the local candy store.

Bug & her dad just saw Wall-E. She drew this afterwards.
