Decatur Book Fest

Labor Day Weekend, 9/2-9/4 2011

My husband and I and our son's family went to the Decatur
Book Fest on one of the hottest days in Atlanta.  It was over
100 degrees!  It was amazing that we lasted three hours,
but there was so much for the kids to do and wonderful
presentations on stage in the tent that the kids just didn't
want to leave.  We tried to beat the crowds to the seats by
the fans.  Don't you think a festival in Atlanta should be
indoors with air conditioning?

Never the less we made it work.  Taylor was soooo excited
to meet Judy Schachner, author of the Skippyjon Jones
series of picture books.  And even more excited to get a picture
taken of her with the author.

Laura Murray gave a "sweet" presentation based on her book,
The Gingerbread Man Escapes from the Bakery.  And my little
grandson, Ty, who is one year old, loved hearing the music
in singer/songwriter, Caroline Herring's presentation.

Anna and Taylor hoola hooped, Ty ate crackers, and the adults
stayed under the tree!  Our rosy cheeks are due to the heat,
not a healthy complexion!
