With the Jingle All the Way 8K less than a week away, Sharlene and I decided to get an early start to the day by walking many Ks before we set up our exhibit booth.
We walked the perimiter of the Gaylord Texan, past Grapevine Lake and the Lazy River and all the way to the Great Wolf Lodge.
We headed back in and set up our fancy exhibit booth.
Afterwards, we decided to walk a few more Ks at the local Grapevine Mills. Several fancy cardigans and new bags later we headed back to open the convention exhibit. Thankfully, we were next to the First Book table and when we weren’t chatting up the PTA we were busy making new friends with people who have books, lots and lots of books!
When the excitement died down, we wandered out to attempt to cross off bucket list items. We were unsuccessful in finding any cowboys but we did pose for pictures in front of some giant boots.
Finally, Sharlene tempted Santa’s wrath before we decided to turn in early.
