Now that I'm a Boston driver (that happened in March when I came down for Isaac's First Robotics event and things just forced me into driving and I found I can!) I brought Isaac and friends down for Comic Con. Whoohoo. (Josh preferred to take trains with Rue.)
I dropped the guys and parked and came over to the venue to see if they'd gotten in and found Howie Green waiting for a bunch of Josh's friends who he was attending with. We hung out for about 45 mins watching the line (Howie already had the wristbands for himself and Aidan) ---
we saw Isaac and friends roll through
and then Aidan, Connor, Adam and Sean came through!
I'm so happy I got a shot of them with Howie. The first time Josh came to Comic Con, he was . . . a high school freshman and took the train down with Adam, Zach, and Aidan -- and Howie, who is a family friend of Aidan's and lives in Boston, met them for the day. They've been conning together ever since -- even to NYC.
Isaac's gang tracked me down for drinks and money and to put stuff in the car midway--and to show me their purchases and yak! As they were returning to the show we saw Josh and Rue--who weren't too excited at this point (I think they missed their first bus).
We hung around longer than planned in case Josh and Rue wanted a ride, but they found their groove, and decided to ride home with the guys we'd seen earlier.
We got a final shot for Caldwell's Tumblr .
and came happily on home.
Some more sights from the day.
Here's a scrapbook page from 2011 -- Josh's first Comic Con. I took these photos at the train station.
Here's a page from last year's Comic Con when Elaine and I brought Isaac, Lily & friends -- Josh came with Rue and I didn't get any photos of them.
