I will admit - that cat is very stubborn. He absolutely refused to move out of the sunshine. Instead he just vocalized his protest as the baby kept crawling over to him and giving him attention.
We had a good time with them and I know Quinn had a blast! And they took a lot of good photos, which I stole and used for this blog post (I was super tired and took like one photo - shame on me!).
Chris is a big fan of Green Lantern and a few years ago he bought me a Red Lantern shirt. So of course we were going to make Quinn a lantern too! We decided on a White Lantern.
Dan came over and we all rode downtown together.
Comfort and Adam's booth, which was pretty nice (it was a corner booth!).
Corinne in artist alley.
This was our first experience out and about with Quinn at an event like this. It was a little stressful for me, just worrying if he was going to get tired, hungry, frustrated, or just be unhappy. I'm not sure why I worried so much - he is usually so happy and easy going. Plus Chris, who is home with him all day, wasn't worried at all.
And of course everything went fine. He was a trooper and stayed awake from 7:40 in the morning to about noon. We even tried to step aside into a quiet place to let him nap and he was too interested in everything to nap. It wasn't until we were on our way back to the car did he finally pass out in the stroller.
I think next year will be even more fun. Quinn will be older and it will be the second year in this venue, so some of the traffic flow oddities will be resolved by then.
I realized pretty shortly that the game doesn't have a single player demo and it's just online or local play with friends. Unfortunately Chris doesn't play video games and Quinn is too young. So maybe I'll try some online play this weekend.
We headed out to the Wyoming Pumpkin Path today. There were a lot more people there than we had anticipated, and the lines were very long. But since Quinn is so little we had no intention of trick or treating and there was no way he could be disappointed by anything.
He had a really good time looking at everyone and just taking the whole scene in.
Peek-A Who? over and over to Quinn (which is also from the same co-worker). He loves that book so I hope he loves these books just as much.
The knife is interesting. I look forward to cutting things with it. But a lipstick case and a mousepad are super random things that I'm not sure what to do with. I have A LOT of mousepads. Hmm...
We first stopped over at my mother-in-law's so she could spend some time with Quinn. Since she can't drive out to see us by herself, we try to stop in if we're able when we're in town so she can see how much he's grown.
