I have a mild interest in her work, but my dad was quick to point out this event and his undying love. So, Jack and I decided to trek to Third Place Books... along with over 700 of our closest, foodie friends.

After wandering the book store for an hour and a half, Jack was ready to terrorize the place. We did less listening to her talk and more throwing books off the shelves. I was able to overhear bits and pieces... There were lots of pictures, especially of Charlie. She sang... sorta. There was even the mention of a possible move to Seattle? Despite his lack of interest, Jack made sure to clap at appropriate times with the rest of the audience.
|Jack threw these water bottles all over the store.|
Jack was fairly well behaved thanks to the large bookstore's food court and toddler play area. However at the 6 hour mark, we both started to melt.
|Jack mostly watched the other kids in the play area.|
I think Jack was wondering why we waited so long to see a lady color in books when his Mama is always saying not to do that.

Happy Birthday, Dad! ...a couple months early. I expect some damn Peach Whiskey Chicken next week. And, Jack wants Coffee Cream Cake. He told me so.
