Erica's Visit | Wednesday, Thursday & Friday!

Now that we've got the senior photos posted... let's rewind to Wednesday afternoon when she hopped off the plane! I was so excited to have her here! It's been a long awaited event, we started talking about this last year! Erica graduates in May and this was her graduation present from Auntie Abby & Uncle Eric. She got to choose, either we would fly there to attend her graduation, or we'd fly her out here to go to Comicon! Well, she choose. And Wednesday afternoon she landed in Seattle! Though I'm a little bummed I won't be there to see her in a mortar board cap and gown, the quality time we had here together was priceless.

First thing Thursday Morning we took a walk in the woods, this little lady is such a tree hugger! She loves nature, and flowers, and everything to do with the out doors! It was a nice catch up time for us!

Then, we got ready and put on our geek ware for our first day at Emerald City Comicon.

We walked around all day, and she was in awe of some of the artists and writers she got to see. It was fun to show her around, but mostly I let her lead to what interested her.

On Day One she didn't quite understand why we'd stand in line like this... to go to Comicon.
By middle of the day on Day two, she was hooked.

We  all got new books, toys and prints, but Erica and I also each adopted one of these Tenticle Kitties. We LOVE them!

Mine is the blue one, her's is the Calico.
Then, we got home, and fed her Thai food for the first time. And we all spent the evening sharing our books and finds from the day.
Day two at Comicon kicked off right meeting Reis of Funko Fame. He is a friend of ours that we see at Comicon and local toy shows alike. He's an extremely talented artist that helps draw what becomes this, in smaller form... they're called Funko Pop. I was glad Erica was able to meet him.
Here she is in line for day two...
There was so much cosplay this year that we liked... it was awesome!

Erica even found a few of HER favorite characters from Steven Universe!

Here's her loot at the end of our two days at Comicon. Not bad if I do say so myself! And... the kicker is... she even fit it ALL in her suitcase!
After Comicon we were all pretty bushed, so Eric went with a friend to dinner, and Erica and I headed to Red Robin for some burgers. Then we hit the Des Moines Marina to explore... and soak in that sea air.

It was a great night, and one I'll cherish. Thanks Erica for great conversation and company.
