Olive and I have had a lot of fun together this summer! She's made a great traveling companion and we've enjoyed hanging out together as we've visited museums and explored new places.
We started out our travels in Las Vegas. We both enjoyed hearing the gondoliers singing at the Venetian. It reminded us of Dexter's singing.
Olive wasn't too shy to play around at the Bellagio and she went right up into the lighthouse!
Our next stop was the American Library Association convention in Anaheim. Olive had a lot of fun hearing the speakers and getting the chance to meet some of her favorite authors.
Olive is a great friend and was sure to support me by cheering me on as I was inducted into Beta Phi Mu, a library and information science honor society.
Next we hopped a plane and headed to London. Olive enjoyed the view from the London Eye and we looked for the major landmarks together.
We were both excited to visit the Globe Theatre, a recreation of the original theatre that Shakespeare performed at. Olive jumped right up onstage and entertained us all.
We finished our travels up with a visit to my friends in Aberdeen, Scotland. Olive liked the architecture of the new library building at King's College.
But Olive's favorite thing to do in Aberdeen was to play with my friends' cats. Olive, Mowgli, and Keiko had some crazy times!
