Salt Lake Comic Con Fan X!

Last Thursday the whole family went down to the Salt Lake Comic Con Fan Xperience. When we go out into large crowds we dress alike- mostly so if one of the boys goes missing we can hold up the other one and say "He's dressed like this!" We decided to wear Giants apparel to Fan X and I knew we had a shirt that was just E's size, so I went through a box of baby boy clothes and TaaaaaaDAAAAA! She's adorable :)
 She's pretty much the perfect accessory 
 We had tickets, but we showed up right at the same time as the rest of the state.....so we waited an hour to get in, which was fine because while waiting we realized that my wallet and the baby's bottle had both been left in the van, there was plenty of time to fix that little oversight. The boys enjoyed the times that I was wearing the baby because it meant that the stroller was available.
 I will admit, that we've never seen Dr. Who.....but that didn't stop our boys from being intrigued by the Tardis.....that's what this is right?
 Who you gonna call?
 The original Bat-mobile from the movies in the 1960's, you can see how impressed the boys are.
 They were most impressed by this little vehicle.
 Ken was most impressed with this car (which is the Delorean from Back to the Future) until.....
 he saw this Ferrari.
 THEN........we found the Lego displays......and we spent lots and lots and lots of time there.
Here is a castle. ( I don't know what castle it is)
 Helms Deep!
 The Black Tower
 A city! (and look there's Bat Man)

 A scene from Ghostbusters
 Superman stopping a train! There is a damsel in distressed tied to the tracks....just out of frame.
 The Delorean being pushed by the train, from Back to the Future 3
 Happy Happy boys, they watched a few working electric Lego trains going around and around and around.....for about a half an hour. I eventually just went and got a chair.........
 ........and the baby fell asleep
 Sorry, I thought I turned this the right way and I can't fix it now. BUT Aunt Deb and Uncle Jeff were volunteers and FanX.
 By the end of the day, the baby was a little overwhelmed.
 Back at the Lego table- A Hover Carrier from the Avengers Movie
 Star Wars!
 Iron Man!
 On Wednesday I reminded the boys that we were going to spend the Thursday afternoon at FanX, they were not really excited (and why should they have been, at the time they didn't know there would be a Lego table) Jared reminded me that Thursday night was his schools Art and Math night. He really really really really really wanted us to go and see his art. PLUS they were serving PIZZA for free. SO, we made sure that we were able to attend. J was very excited to show us this art piece he made- it's a Bee!
