My daughter meets her favorite author – Rick Riordan @camphalfblood

Posted on Oct 24, 2015 by in fun, Rick Riordan | 4 comments

Have you noticed the new feature on Facebook called ON THIS DAY?  It shows your old post and pictures for that day.  On Tuesday Facebook showed me a post from 5 years ago when my eldest daughter met her favorite author. We live 2 hours from the book signing and she had a doctors appointment that day.  Our amazing friends went and stood in line for us to get her a ticket for the signing that evening.  Below are the pictures and what was written with each picture.


They handed out 1,000 tickets (they had more people than they had tickets). Samantha was blessed to get ticket 29 and 30 because of our friends who stood in line for hours to get Samantha a ticket while she was at the doctors in Portland.

It was crazy with all the fans. (Sam’s not in this photo)

It was like a slaughter house….walk up get book sign…move on. They were trying to get 1,000’s of fans through the line quickly.

And onto to the next person.

The whole in side and outside of the store was packed with people waiting to get a book signed.

Hard to believe that was 5 years ago!
We took the extra ticket and went outside and handed the ticket to someone who didn’t originally get a ticket.
Yes, she still likes reading books by Rick Riordan.

  1. Samantha got me hooked on his books, which I still read. Look forward to his yearly new book. Thanks Samantha!

    • She was looking at his newest book at Target tonight. <3
      I'll share this comment with her. 🙂

  2. That is such a great memory. Unfortunately I am the sole reader in my family. My boys read because they have to not because they want to. Brings a tear to my eye…where did I go wrong????

    Love this, thanks for sharing 🙂 ♥

    • Only my daughter is the reader in my family. The other two kids could care less. I feel like you. #MomFailure!

      Hard to believe that was 5 years ago. She looks so young. 🙂
