We weren't formally introduced or anything, but when Glenn Beck was in our area for his book signing tour, dh and I decided to go. Knowing that we'd probably have to wait in line for a while, and knowing how much our boys love waiting in lines, we arranged to have Bearhug and Cuddlebug play with their friend across the street for a while and we took Bitty with us.
We arrived about 2 hrs before he was scheduled to be there, so we were near the front of the line. Dh held our place in line while Bitty and I walked around to keep him occupied. When it got closer, we joined dh in the line. I took some pictures while we were waiting:
Bitty was done looking at the camera when it was my turn:
A mother / daughter pair in line next to us, I liked their shirts so I asked if I could take their picture for my blog :)
Little Bitty entertaining himself while we waited
Glenn Beck's crew kept the line moving pretty fast so we didn't get to stop and chat, but we shook his hand and he patted Mr. Bitty on the head :), and after that I walked back over to take a couple of pictures. He seemed like a genuinely nice guy and I was impressed that he focused on looking people in the eye as he greeted them, rather than focusing on signing books. That made for some squiggly signatures, sure, but still I thought that said something about what he felt was more important.
I got a picture of the tour bus parked outside as we went out to our car.
If you haven't read his book, "The Christmas Sweater" yet, it's a quick read but will stay with you long after you finish the book. My review of it is posted here.
