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…
