family vacation!

This Pocket Pacy is having a fabulous time with the Wu family. They've brought Pocket Pacy south to Grand Mound WA for some water fun at Great Wolf lodge:

Then north to Rice Lake in North Vancouver (BC Canada) on a hike:

Then over the ocean to  Kihei Public Library and found my books in Maui, Hawaii:

And finally, into SPACE via a Star Wars X-Wing, accompanied by R2D2:

Ha! Doesn't that look fun?

Don't forget, you can win your own pocket pacy (as well as a chance to get your portrait painted by me) if you enter your photo in my Starry River giveaway! More details HERE!

lexington, ma

It's a special edition Starry River of the Sky Pocket Pacy! One of the ones I made for my giveaway (and YOU can still win one, get your entry in for the 1st drawing on Saturday).  This one was a I gave to the Elephant's Trunk Bookstore for a special giveaway when a Starry River of the Sky came out.

The winners of this Pocket Pacy made a custom carrying case out of a Xylitol bottle to  carry her around. The case is decorated with a Starry River sticker!

Here she is at the Minuteman statue on Lexington common:

I hope she sees even more of the Boston sites! And I can't wait to see more Starry River of the Sky Pocket Pacys in the world!

France and Sweden!

Young reader Kaylin took Pocket Pacy to France and Sweden! If you recall, it was my own trip to France that inspired the first Pocket Pacy, so seeing these photos made me a little sentimental.

Here is Kaylin and Pocket Pacy at the Eiffel Tower:
Maybe she met the Pocket Pacy I left there!
At  Laduree:

I missed this teapot on my trip!

And Monet's Garden:
A bit more difficult to find than mine!
But this Pocket Pacy also got to go to Sweden! Here she is at the canals:

Lucky Pocket Pacy! Thanks so much, Kaylin!

pocket pacy sees the eclipse!

The Bell family took Pocket Pacy on an exciting trip to Zion National Park to see the annular eclipse on May 20th:
about 10 minutes outside the park

there weren't sunglasses small enough for Pacy

the sun gives her an angelic glow!

Neat, huh?

Wow! I think Pocket Pacy had an amazing time! Thank you Bell Family!

Pocket Pacy in Barcelona!

The wonderful Dim Sum, Bagels, and Crawfish family took Pocket Pacy to Barcelona! You can read about Pacy's Barcelona travels HERE, but here is a sneak peek:

isn't this a neat photo?

I was told that Pacy loved the tapas so much because it was so similar to dim sum...

Pocket Pacy in Chicago

Another reader sent in this photo of Pocket Pacy:

She is resting atop a deer statue in Aon Park on Lake St in downtown Chicago!

pocket pacy at the theatre

Lovely reader Naomi, who celebrated Lunar New Year with Pocket Pacy, recently brought Pocket Pacy to the Where the Mountain Meets the Moon theatre production:

She even met the the actor who played Dragon!

Sunday, May 20th, is the last show! See it if you can (more info HERE). I hope it was a great run!

pocket pacy in San Diego

Lovely reader Miranda took her Pocket Pacy to San Diego!

Pocket Pacy got to see beach at the Cabrillo National Monument at low tide:

and explore all of the cool marine life found in the tidepools:

I think Pocket Pacy is really lucky to have a friend like Miranda, don't you?

pocket pacy in Slovakia

A lovely attendee of my Dumpling Days Book Launch took her Pocket Pacy to Central Europe!  Pocket Pacy was in Slovakia! You can see the photos at this link but here is a sneak preview:

Here Pocket Pacy is in front of the Bojnice Castle in Slovakia. Does she look a little cold to you?

Regardless, she had plenty to read! Here she is with the Slovak version of "Tales of the Beedle the Bard":

She also had plenty to eat! Pocket Pacy and pierogies!

And then she went skiing. Do you think she went skiing on this mammoth Slovak blueberry dumpling or the mountains in the background? I'm guessing the dumpling, personally.

But I'm sure she had a wonderful time! I'm jealous!

pocket pacy goes to washington

From the Lee family comes this Pocket Pacy adventure!

Earlier in February, Pocket Pacy went to Washington D.C. to see the sights. The vice president of China was also there that week, so it was even more difficult to get into the White House. :(  But she did see the outside:

and she also visited the Capitol, the Supreme Court, and the National Zoo, where the pandas were dining. So much to see!  

What a great trip, don't you think? Thanks, Lee family!
