Dan and I are attending The Phoenician’s Easter celebration, Sunday, April 20th, which has all the promise of a hopping good time! First, we invite all of you to come to our book signing of Discover The Phoenician with Phoe-Phoe & Friends. We can’t wait to sign a copy just for you. You will meet the resort’s legendary mascot, Phoe-Phoe, as well as several of her BFFs, like Tut-Tut the wise old turtle, and Charlie, a very huggable big bear. Snickers, the celebrity therapy dog, will also make a special guest appearance. This adorable pooch is not to be missed! Not only does he make a cameo in our book, he is a full-time, volunteer therapy dog with many great tricks up his Pomeranian paws!
We had the honor of creating Discover The Phoenician with Phoe-Phoe & Friends for The Phoenician’s 25th anniversary. The book introduces a cast of furry characters that live year-round at the resort and the many incredible things to do for children and their families at this world-famous resort. Every year, there is more to do, including this year’s ‘Surge,’ a splash pad like no other! Hop over to take a look at it while you’re here!
After you pick up your newly signed book, you will want to attend one of The Phoenician’s most wonderful annual events – Phoe-Phoe’s Egg Hunt, as well as the Easter Fair, Rubber Ducky Races and a very special Birds of Prey show. Here’s the full listing with times and locations:
