We were originally going to go camping this weekend. Then a cub scout camp out at the end of the month had me thinking I would reschedule the zoo trip to this weekend.
Then I found out there was going to be a Discover the Dinosaurs event this weekend.
Jonathan LOVES dinosaurs.
But that little excursion was $100, just to get in the door.
Yeah, that didn’t happen.
Then I found the Cincinnati Comic Expo. $20 bucks and kids under 12 got in free.
My kind of event.
And apparently Jonathan & Zachary’s kind of event, too! (Jacob spent the night at a friends’ house)
We spent 5 hours walking around the Duke Energy Convention Center in Cincinnati.
First there was a little face painting.
Then there was some Star Wars love.
We didn’t win anything in the raffle, but it was fun hunting the Storm Trooper!
Then there were Lego’s!!!
It took us several go a round’s to find them all, but we did it!
And the piece de resistance?
Zachary got to meet one of the pony artists and have a custom pony drawn just for him. This is Dj Pon-3 as drawn by Heather Breckel. He stood and watched her draw this for twenty minutes. Needless to say, he was in 7th heaven!
Jonathan asked if we could go next year. The only thing we really missed is dressing up. There were lots and lots of folks walking around in costume. Since I only found out about it the day before, we didn’t have time to make costumes – but next year, watch out!
