Showing Some L.A. Book Love

We had a fabulous time at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books this weekend. The weather has been especially overcast and chilly lately (what's up, LA?), so I was happy when we arrived to a bright and sunshiney USC campus on Sunday.

After first checking out a book-friendly episode of "My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic" -- the episode was called "Read It and Weep" (stay tuned for the video Q&A and "Brony" musings tomorrowlater this week!) -- CC and I met up with Ian and wandered around campus exploring book booths.

At one point, CC plopped down under one of the leafy green trees and asked if I would read her a story. It was so sweet and simple, and we had a lovely time.

We had an awesome lunch at the on-campus lemonade -- yay blueberry mint lemonade and SoCal comfort food! -- after which CC found a way to turn seating into a kid-friendly slide.

When we finally hit the Target Children's Stage, the adorably energetic Jose-Luis Orozco was singing the ABC song in English and Espanol to the kiddos.

We capped off the day by buying CC a book she can't put down -- "Camilla the Cupcake Fairy Sticker Activity Book."

A big success in my (ahem) book.
