Charleston Day 1

Today we drove down to Charleston, SC for a much needed vacation (the month of March has beaten us up). This is Ariel’s first trip here (we aren’t counting spring 1995) and our first in about 12 years. Our room at the Harbor View Inn overlooks the Cooper River. If we look to the left [...]

Florida – Day 4

This was our last day at Disney, so we finished up with another day at Epcot. The big thrill was Test Track (so double rainbow), but we also really enjoyed the gardening section of The Land. Lunch was yummy food in the Mexico pavilion. And we found a few more hats to model.

Phoenix Comicon, Day 2

Our morning was spent walking around the Vendor Hall and taking pictures of awesome costumes. Quite a few people wanted pictures of either Kevin/Tony Stark or Ariel/Codex. there were two little kids that were beside themselves to get their picture taken with Tony Stark. We even found an Ironman to take a picture [...]

Phoenix Comicon, Day 1

Finally in Phoenix. We checked into the hotel, changed out of yesterday’s clothes and headed across the street to the convention center to Comicon. We hit the Exhibit Hall and wound our way over to where Felicia Day and Wil Wheaton we signing merch. Wil Wheaton was very cool and remembered Kevin’s [...]

We were supposed to have a layover in Atlanta, but that turned into an overnight stay since out plane left so late. The Delta agent was helpful in finding us [...]
