David Archuleta

Summer is finally here and the fun has begun. Last week just disappeared and this week is going just as quickly. I do get to sleep in each day and I've really needed it and enjoyed it.

Tell me you remember David Archuleta from American Idol. Good. I'm glad!

He's definitely a local favorite here in Utah.

Well, yesterday he came to Deseret Book in Orem for a book signing of his new book that's just been published called "Chords of Strength" (published by Celebra , an imprint of New American Library, a division of Penguin Group). If you're interested in checking it out you can find the book on AMAZON. I've started reading it and I'm fascinated and inspired by the road he's traveled thus far in his life, quite remarkable. It's been a great read so far and I'm really enjoying it.

Here are a few pictures from yesterday...

The event started at Noon.
We arrived at about 10:30am.

My sister is very smart.
She brought camp chairs and umbrella's.

The girls are nervous, yet excited.

The girls showing me their books.
They are way excited.

While we were getting near the front Kenna and her cousins were interviewed by a news reporter from the KBYU Local News. They were there to report on the event.

(Note: Today we got to see all three girls on the Local News Channel 11 KBYU)

My niece is being interviewed too.
She is a HUGE fan of David Archuleta and she is often found writing his name over and over again in her notebook. She also has several pictures of him on her bedroom wall.

My other niece was interviewed too.

We made it to the front of the line where we got to see David Archuleta close up and get his signature. Kenna had fun meeting him and hearing him sing before the book signing started. We all had a really fun day together.

Hope you are all enjoying your summer.

What a dream come true for these girls! I love his voice and am hoping to get his book soon. I really like that he sang before for all of them. He seems to be a genuinely kind person and not into the star status at all. I'm glad you had a good time bz the girls will never forget this day!

Glad to see you are enjoying your summer. I have missed your posts. I have collected Christmas fabrics and bought the ruler and am preparing to make your Kaleidoscope quilt. Thanks again for your tutorial.

Wow, such a fun event for the girls! I bet they were all so very excited. Plus anything that involves reading is so worth the effort. How cool is that that the girls were interviewed? And on TV?

I wish I had known about that. How awesome for your daughters. I will have to go get his book. He is one of my favorites. I loved your pictures.
