My boys and I went to the Raleigh Supercon yesterday. It was the first major convention for me*, and the first any convention for them. Since my 51st birthday was last week, this was my choice of “party”.
I took some pics of the Overwatch cosplayers (taken just spur of the moment with my phone):
I came across this A-Team van in the local Target parking lot. Just as I took out my phone to photograph it, the owner walked up with his two young sons. I talked with the owner for a minute, and he told me he put this together himself. It’s pretty cool.
Although Calfgrit13 did his best to sell us on a bird, we had to say no. Birds are much too loud and messy. So he changed his attention to lizards. And after much research, he decided to want a bearded dragon.
He did a lot of research on their care and feeding, their habitats, their lives, and their personalities. Although Wifegrit isn’t all that thrilled with the idea of a lizard pet, she wasn’t opposed to it (like she is absolutely opposed to a snake pet). So, we now have a bearded dragon living in our home. His name is Rex.
I actually really like this critter. He doesn’t bark, doesn’t chew my books. He’s a perfect pet (that I don’t have to be responsible for).
