Out and About

I was so excited when I read in the paper that one of my favorite authors, TC Boyle, was going to be in town for a book signing. He’s a local, so he normally starts and ends his book tours in Santa Barbara, but somehow I not only missed his first few stops on the tour, but the fact he had a new book out at all. Hubs actually was going to surprise me with a copy of the book, knowing how loathe I am to buy hardbacks, but I went and spoiled the whole thing by demanding we go to the signing, It happens.

We decided to make a day of it and headed out to have some awesome burgers and then hit the mission rose garden for some ball time. Spencer just loves to run up the hill and I think his is finally mastering kicking and throwing. Catching, on the other hand, could use some work.

Next up was a stop at the mall where I finally succumbed to getting Spencer a pair of deck shoes. I love them.

Then to the book signing and thankfully Spencer fell asleep in the car and hubs just stayed with him. While the children’s section of Chaucer’s is amazing, I think it is a little much for the grabby-handed toddler. Now, if someone can just tell me what the inscription says…

    !!!! How exciting! If you get it deciphered, I’d be curious to hear what is says.

    the consensus seems to be that it says con amistad which is “with friendship” in Spanish.
