Wordful Wednesday ~ Meeting Jeff Kinney

This past weekend I took my daughter on a surprise trip and it took everything that I had to keep from telling her too! She spent more than half the trip asking where are we going, when are we going to get there, why did I have to bring this book, are we doing this.. are we doing that.. why can’t you tell me… and so on.

Before to long though were had arrived and within minutes she had figured out what we were doing.

We were meeting the Diary of a Wimpy Kid author Jeff Kinney! To say that she was excited was an understatement.

I have to say that I was really impressed with the bus! It was covered from front to back and both sides promoting the new Diary of a Wimpy Kid book… the Third Wheel.hanging with friends

The event was so much fun for the kids! They really went all out and made sure that there was always something to do while waiting their turn to meet Jeff Kinney and get their book signed. A dj played fun dance music all night while running dance contests, there was a photo booth, a tattoo station, a drawing contest, and of course since it was in a book store there were books & magazine to check out just in case you got really bored!

The big event of the night though was getting to talk to Jeff Kinney after all the other kids had left… more on that in another post!
