|So you can get a general idea of the banquet hall... this was my table|
|They showed a slideshow of each speller in order of placing... this was my slide|
|The guest speaker - Josh Foer, author, Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything|
|They have an after-party immediately following the banquet - this is Elli and Meghan, the first ones on the dance floor, as usual|
|Some lady who photobombed Dad's picture|
We had lunch at the Princetonian Diner, where they used to eat - and it was amazing, by the way. Definitely recommend it.
|Mom, in front of the preschool she used to work at - it's still there!|
|A tree (the little one in the middle) that Mom and Dad planted at the preschool 20 years ago before they left...|
|We were in Princeton at possibly the busiest week of the year - graduation. So there was almost no parking, and like everywhere on the East coast currently, it was blisteringly hot to walk around. Oh, well.|
|The Princeton band did a little mini-parade into the... um... "graduation arena"? Not sure what to call it...|
So now we're about halfway from Princeton to Anderson - at a hotel in Hershey, PA. The plan is to tour the chocolatey landmarks of the area tomorrow morning, then be back by late tomorrow night.
There's not much else to blog about today, but I will show you this:
