(I’m not dead- yet- and I haven’t abandoned blogging- yet- but with the advent of nicer weather it seems I haven’t sat down for more than a few minutes at a time. I have a nearly-done shawl that I will hopefully be binding off tonight, and I DID finish sewing all 100 buttons onto my modern cross quilt, but we’ve have over 3 weeks straight of rainy days, and I have no idea how to photograph the king sized monstrosity to show it to you… That said, I thought I’d give you a peek at what kept me away from my sewing machine this past weekend.)
Denver is home to the 3rd biggest Comic Con in the nation, and the only one that focuses on kids and families. For xmas, we gave our nerdy little people 3-day passes. Below is just a sampling of our Memorial Day weekend…
I won the Iron Throne– but how long will I keep it?
The entire family took a trip to Tatooine.
Captain Annie-merica met her nemesis…
And we ended the night with another photo op, with Sean Astin of Goonies and LoTR fame. “It’s our time down here!” “Goonies never say die!” Note our specially selected Ts (2 LoTR, 1 goonie…)
3 of us came back for another day, all done up as Daleks and Doctors.
We even went to space…
We saw amazing cosplay- this is only the tip of the iceberg.
We went to a panel with Sean Astin, where at the end, he swore us all in as official Goonies!
And then it was time for Day 3.
Annie had a quick check up/
Henry checked out some career options.
And we all got our silly on.
And then we slept.
