the 1st was superman celebration.
each & every summer we look forward to attending superman celebration in metropolis, il (or as 1 friend calls it, "the trop". seriously.). this yr was no different, except...it was...different. this time, the boy came w/ us! (dun dun duuuuunnnnn!!!)
because of this, i had to trade in most of the MAW Productions booth time for mommy duties. which was ok, except for the times anakin got a little too excited &, well, let's just say he got into more trouble this past weekend than in the whole 3 yrs of his life. :/ but it's ok. he's only 3 & has the attention span of a cat. there were times i had to take him away from the celebration & go to a park down the street so he could run around & get it all out of his system. as long as he had fun, rt? rt!
but we were all happy to see old friends & hang out & eat deliciously bad consession stand food & appreciate all the cool costumes & get sunburns. let's take a gander @ the festivities, shall we?

& what about the 2nd thing that happened?
antone & i celebrated 10yrs of marital bliss. that's rt. on june 8th, 2002, @ around 2:30 pm, me & the flavor o' my life sealed the deal in a hot church (ac broke down) in front of family & friends.
& how did we celebrate? on june 8th, 2012, at around 2:30pm, my husband & i were performing in a Super Mule puppet show w/ the guy who should've been the best man 10yrs ago, kevin williams. that may sound corny & strange to some, but i thought it was perfect. we were together (how many couples can even boast THAT, huh?), we were happy, we were doing something we liked doing, & we were w/ friends. & bam, there ya go.
