Every Generation Has A Legend. Every Journey Has A First Step. Every Saga Has A Beginning.

With great power comes great responsibility

Of course this title refers to the legendary Stan "The Man" Lee. While planning our upcoming trip to the Awesomeness that is Austin Comic Con and Dallas Fan Days, I figured that I would fill you in on our FABULOUS trip to Dallas Comic Con this past May. It was AWESOME! We, of course, met Stan Lee!! It was EASILY the highlight of our trip. I still "geek-out" about it. We were so excited to meet him.

Stan "The Man" Lee
Seriously, Dallas Comic Con was wonderful. The staff was informative and helpful. A ton of people were in costume, including my kiddos! Alek was Iron Man, Julianna was Black Widow (as seen above complete with guns.) and Perrin was Captain America (to meet Stan Lee, then a quick costume change later, he was a Jedi).

Because we love everything Comic Book and Star Wars, Mommy and Daddy choose to spend their 10th wedding anniversary heading up to Dallas to bring the kids to Comic Con. We had been planning it for months. It was our first Comic Con and we figured Dallas was a good start and who could miss it with the line up that they had! Stan Lee, Jeremy Bulloch (Boba Fett), Dave Prowse (Actor inside of the Darth Vader suit), Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), Adam West (orginal Batman), Burt Ward (Robin), and Patrick Stewart (Professor X and Jean Luc Picard from Star Trek: The Next Generation)

Here are a few pictures of our Comic Con adventure:

Alek is IRON MAN!

The calm after a long drive! Gotta rest up for the Awesomeness tomorrow!

The kids know the power of the dark side!

Who would win? Wolverine or Perrin the Jedi?

Alek was so excited Spidey was there!

2 Black Widows!

Rex and Wolf!! HOW AWESOME!

Pre-Costume change but Perrin just had to go get his photo with this clone!

This was the second time we met Mr. Jeremy Bulloch. The first time was Perrin's Make A Wish trip to Disney World for Star Wars Weekend. He is a wonderful person. Perrin really enjoyed talked Star Wars with him both of the times we met him.

Alek: Hulk Smash!
Alek couldn't leave without Hulk grabbing his head too!

We would love to thank Dallas Comic Con and Stan Lee for the wonderful weekend. We had a blast and look forward to Fan Days in October!!
