Authors and Archuleta

Brandon Mull, author of the Fablehaven series among others.

A few weeks ago our family attended a fabulous Book Fair to listen to some authors and find out what was new in the book world. The agenda was full of events, too many to see everything we would have liked. Lots of fun.

David Archuleta being interviewed by Nadine Wimmer of KSL-TV

While wandering we happened to notice THIS familiar guy who was speaking about his love of books and about the biography he wrote and published last year.

I might have bought a copy.

I might have had it signed.

Oh, and we ran into one of our FAVORITE book characters!

If You Like the Beatles' Music...

....You won't want to miss this Rooftop Concert.
And the fabulous Sarah Sample is not to be missed.
Kick off your Independence Day weekend celebrations at this
FREE concert.
Plan to arrive early with chairs in hand.
The last two concerts were packed.
Bring food or eat at the excellent local restaurants.
Or buy some of the yummy food and goodies from
The Courtyard Vendors.
Sweet Tooth Fairy anyone?
Seriously a fabulous evening.
Did I mention it's FREE?

We Love Kung Fu Panda

Soeur Cope with 'Po' in Belgium
We are a family who adores
quality animation
with a great story.
Our family loves Kung Fu Panda.
It is one of Coryn's favorites.
(When she was little she collected Pandas.)
In our collective opinion
the sequel is even better!
(Coryn will have to wait til next year to see it, however.)
We highly recommend.

Oh, What a Friday!

Meaghan Smith indulging me with a photo for Coryn who first introduced us to Meaghan's music a few years back. Meaghan thought it was so wonderful that Coryn was serving a mission in Paris ("Oh, I LOVE Paris!") and has such admiration for missionaries.

Another awesome Rooftop Concert has come and gone!
And the darling and amazing Meaghan Smith
won over the hearts of all in attendance.
Wow...can that girl put on a show!
Such a gorgeous voice.
I got to spend a lot of time with her.
She is so kind, humble and genuine.

Mindy Gledhill chilling with Cammy in the Greenroom.

The fabulous Mindy Gledhill opened the show.
Cammy is a huge fan and Mindy was so sweet
to spend some time talking with her.
She signed Cammy's CD which has played
non-stop in our house for a long time.

I got to introduce our terrific Mayor Curtis to the headliners.
I took these photos for him.
Doesn't he look "starstruck'?

Mindy is 8 months pregnant and this is her last concert before she "nests."

This was my view of the stage.
Right next to it with a water bottle at the ready.

Our talented photographer for the evening, Trevor Christensen captured
this sweet shot of Meaghan looking at her handsome husband and guitarist.
See more of Trevor's amazing concert shots HERE.

I love this candid shot because all you can see of me is my
hair and arm
hiding behind singer/songwriter Sam Payne with Meaghan in the back
taking a photo of the crowd.
That's Courtney ( who hosts the concerts
talking with the super-talented Kendra Lowe
(who tours with David Archuleta, is David Osmond's music arranger, talent coordinator for Stadium of Fire, and seasoned all-around performer. She played keyboards for Meaghan.)

To see another photo I took go HERE.
And go HERE to read Mindy's take on the night.
*Next post I'll share some photos of the Greenroom
