My kids have had some pretty cool experiences! LuLu got to meet Annie Leibovitz yesterday while she was waiting for Mr. Man to give her a ride home after Second City Camp. Mr. Man was taking Annie around the Super Great Doll Place, getting props for portraits and he was able to introduce Annie to LuLu. I tried to impress upon LuLu how extraordinary this was! Annie took the last photo of John Lennon, it was the Rolling Stone cover where John and Yoko were nude. Annie also recently irked the Queen of England during a portrait sitting, changed the attitude towards pregnancy with Demi Moore's famous cover. Wowee, I wish I could have been there! The kids got to walk a red carpet in L.A. for the opening of the Super Great Doll Place at the Grove. LuLu's first parade was riding on a float down Michigan Avenue as Mickey Mouse waved a wand to light the trees on the Magnificent Mile! One of the coolest experiences was when LuLu got to throw out the first pitch at a Cubs game.When we went to the next baseball game Bam Bam asked when we could go onto the field, he assumed this was a normal custom.
