The book sale was wonderful, and we will definitely be attending this in the future! A high school gym and cafeteria FILLED with tables full of used books. The most expensive thing we bought was $4. I think most of the books were probably a dollar or two. We picked up a few nice books about Chinese culture and some Chinese fairy tales. I grabbed a few cookbooks and a few novels to read. Oh, and a biography of Mao, which I've wanted to read for a while.
At the booksale, we met up with the J family, who traveled to China with us to meet their daughter H. We went out for a nice Mexican lunch with them...here's H and Sophie in the parking lot afterward. They were quite friendly with each other!
After checking into the hotel, we took a little cruise over to Woodstock and Quechee VT. We drove a little further, trying to give Sophie some naptime in the car. Here are some shots from the town green in Woodstock:
We grabbed dinner in Woodstock at a lovely place called Bentley's, but there was no air conditioning and we were stuffed in a corner with no breeze. Ugh. Good food, though. Later that evening, we went to the pool. Sophie LOVED the water and didn't want to get out, despite her chattering teeth.
Sophie thought the stuffed moose should talk, like the one at the Bugaboo Creek Steakhouse!
EJ is on school vacation this week. This morning, we took Sophie to the allergist and confirmed that yes, she is allergic to peanuts after all. And cashews. And cats. More on that later. Ugh.
