Lunch was followed by a return to the Pottery Place mall to let the boys spend the balance of their "souvenir" money. Fortunately I was able to steer them to the swap meet first where they naturally bought matching GTOs. There wasn't much I could do to stop them from getting Beanie Babies with the rest, though.

Once we got back to the hotel I realized that the sore throat that had been bothering me was getting worse - not a good sign before the biggest day of the event. I rested while the remainder of the crew went to get pizza for dinner. Hopefully I'll feel better tomorrow, or I may just have to link to last year's show pictures and hope no one notices!
