GOODNIGHT ARK‘s BIRTHDAY BASH!!!!

Goodnight Ark

I was thrilled when Laura asked me to document GOODNIGHT ARK’s birthday bash. That’s right, Saturday, September 6th was GOODNIGHT ARK’s coming out party. Many people gathered at our local Barnes & Noble to celebrate.

I couldn’t capture all of the magic, but hopefully you get the idea.

During the fun, I took a little “What’s Your Favorite Animal?” survey.  Elephant was the winner, followed by Tiger in close second. Here’s a clip of one boy’s response.

 

After the reading, and crafts, and signing, and surveys, we gobbled up the treats below to continue the celebration!!!

I’m certain everyone slept well (not like the animals in GOODNIGHT ARK) after such a wonderful day. Thanks Laura, for letting me share in the celebration.

  2. Congrats to Laura! Wow, it looks like it was quite a day. The cookies alone look amazing. (Sorry I have to zero in on the food…) I too love elephants, but I also like zebras, leopards and giselles. Lots of luck to Laura with her wonderful book! The cover is beautiful.

  3. How fun! Thanks for sharing, and I enjoyed all the photos! Wow, what a neat cake, Laura! And your daughter must be so proud of you and her cookies!
