Back From ALA

Well, I'm back from ALA Annual in Anaheim, and except for the travel part, it was a good conference, and a good place to have some fun, too!

I had a nice room in the conference hotel:

I heard Sally Ride speak, met Jay Asher and Kaya McLaren, I did NMRT things, and I picked up schwag at the exhibits:

Time for Exhibits

I also dipped my toes in the Pacific:

And a Few More!

Got an In-N-Out burger:

In N Out!

And of course, went to Disneyland! We had perfect timing, and only waited a few minutes for each ride! Wonderful! The Matterhorn, Space Mountain, Thunder Mountain, Pirates...good times...

Another View...

I even got some Pirate Mickey Mouse ears. Hee. :-)

July 1

The only bad part of the trip was getting home...LAX had a bomb scare, my plane took off late, storms further delayed us in the air, and the whole trip culminated in my sleeping on the floor of the Detroit Airport for an entire night until I could take two more flights to finally get home. I missed my home. And my BED after that experience!

Still, 'twas a good trip:

All Together!
