Comics, Toys, and Collectibles Show

Saturday, we headed off to the Live Oak Civic Center to take in the Comics, Toys, and Collectibles Show.  Of course, we had an ulterior motive since "Grandpa" is an events coordinator at the Civic Center.  As you can see, "some" of the people who attend these kind of shows take them very seriously to the point of dressing up for them.  I snapped this photo of my crew at just the right moment to avoid being obvious.  You would be amazed at some of the costumes and those wearing them.

We had the usual "looking and not touching" discussion in advance and kids were very good.

They were quick to point out everything they were familiar with from TV and the Internet.

They each carried off several prizes.  Not everything was expensive so finding a few fun things was easy.
