hello! remember me?

We're back from road trip 2012.  Much fun was had, and I've cleaned out the 90 + e-mails.  Now for some quality blog time and a rehash!
War Machine!!!!

First up:  Denver Comic Con.  What a blast!

Really, I had no idea what to expect and was just sort of tagging along to watch, but it was So.  Much.  Fun.  Everyone has already jumped on the bandwagon to go again if Denver hosts another.

Magnum and some new friends

I'm NOT going to say, "Who you gonna call?" in this caption!

I think what made it fun was that there was instant camaraderie among all of the attendees just from the mere fact that we were all at Comic Con together.

There were some really fun costumes and displays.  And the art people were really friendly!

Meego less than impressed with a talking car
he's never heard of

More like it!

He seems a lot bigger in the movies
Okay, this one's big

We have no idea who/what this character is.

So the trip began with a bang.  We could all die happy, having attended at least one Comic Con.  We loaded up the souvenirs and headed out for the second leg of the trip:  Nebraska and CORN!

Excitement abounds!



  1. Arghhh. The true photo of kids after we've wasted ourselves providing pure pleasure. At least the excitement is still in your memory banks.

  2. Ha ha their faces on that last shot cracked me up. :D

    The only one I recognised was the "big" one, only coz I have his logo on one of my t-shirts. :D Looks like you had more fun than anyone else!

  3. Welcome back! Looks like lotsa fun, even for those who may not be at "into it" as the true diehards. I think the fuzzy one is Cousin It... with a fresh haircut.


  4. Wow looks like you guys had a blast at the con :3! Your sons are very blessed to have a mom who doesn't mind geeking out sometimes and going to comic cons. :D

  5. Looks like you all had a bunch of fun! Sorry, I can't help you with identifying the egg man. He's a little creepy if you ask me.

    The boys' faces are lacking enthusiasm at the prospect of corn. I hope the reality proved them wrong!

    1. I'll add to Terri's comment and say that the egg man needs to shave his legs or put on some pants - at least some shorts!

      Love seeing the family pics. :)

  6. Yeah.... corn's not as impressive as comic con. At least for me. I see it everyday out my back window. (And front window. And the sides for that matter.)
    We are definitely looking forward to seeing some mountains! :)
    Thanks for sharing your pics with us! You all look like you had so much fun! And it's great to have you back posting again!

  7. Recalling a "Star Trek" episode I'm watching right now, I think that's a tribble with legs!

    Looks like y'all had a great time--good pictures!

  8. Wow. The inner geek in me is way jealous. I would have been with Magnum - hanging out by the R2D2 droids (these are not the droids you are looking for). And I'm not sure who the fuzzy guy is supposed to be - a cue-tip with legs?
