Katie and I took the boys to Awesomecon at the end of June. Katie drove and I kept thinking it was outside DC (something like BrickFair) but nope it was at the Walter E Washington convention center near the national mall. We decided to go on Friday since we thought it might be a little less crowded. It was fun to see how many people dressed up, the costumes were my favorite part! We did some shopping, people watching, and checked out the little Stan Lee Museum they had set up. There was even free cold brew coffee as you came into the event. The boys seemed to have an awesome time, and it really wasn’t an overwhelming crowd on Friday compared to some photos I’ve seen from Saturday.

    I’m a long time reader. Just wondering what’s going on with your Blythe dolls.

    Hi Angela, thanks for still stopping by! My poor blythe dolls are pretty neglected. My friend Molly and I keep talking about having a blythe tea party of sorts, another gal we know locally has been thinking of buying one so it would be a good excuse! I did finally buy a middie about 9 months ago or so…maybe I’ll bother Molly about the party again as a good excuse to get them all out :)
