The Real Vacation Has Begun!
The ALA conference was great but the schedule and travel between our hotel, the convention center, and the outlying hotel events was exhausting. The real vacation began yesterday afternoon. Tom took me around to all the outdoor places he explored while I was at the conference - music, sun, sculptures, etc. We finished the night with a marvelous meal at Morton's - genuine prime Midwest filet mignon with all the trimmings! Today we took the bus down to Hyde Park and saw the Harry Potter exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry. Thursday afternoon we check out and fly up to Minnesota for a long weekend with Paul and Carol at their cabin outside of Minneapolis. (photos to follow)
