Back from Chicago

The kids had spring break last week, so we took a few days to drive down to Chicago and visit the Legoland Discovery Center, Shedd Aquarium, and Brookfield Zoo. It was fun to get away from work and various genre/internet wars for a little while.

Pictures are on Flickr, for those who care. Here are some of my favorites:

LEGO R2D2 Baby gorilla! Giraffes: Not so good at hide-and-seek.

Dolphin close-up Parrot kisses Bear hug!

Got home late Friday night, and spent the weekend working on page proof corrections for Fable: Blood of Heroes, doing an interview about the Sad/Rabid Puppies Hugo thing, putting together the rough ebook file for Invisible 2, drafting a new book to pitch to my editor at DAW, and getting through a few thousand more words of Revisionary.

And now I kind of want another vacation…

That giraffe is not doing a good job at hide and seek... (;

Sadly, no. The younger child was starting to run out of patience, so we didn't quite get to see everything.

Fabulous pictures! And I want a vacation after simply reading all of that...

Those bears are so adorable! And those parrots are simply beautiful. I'm glad you and your family had so much fun on your vacation. :D

Sounds like you've been extremely busy on returning home and could use another break... :)
